“How these sons of bitches became Calif of Islam?”. By Ussama Anwar Akkasha

Note: It was common in Mecca during the “Jaahiliyat” period (Before Mohammad spread his message of One God) to have many taverns and Whore houses for the thousands of pilgrims and traders. Thus, many of the known Muslim leaders and Calif were descended of women running these houses.

This article is sort of historical account and names of women who generated many Emirs in early Islam.

Late Ussama Anwar Akkasha is an Egyptian author and scenarist

قبل سنوات كتب الروائي والسيناريست الكبير الراحل أسامة أنور عكاشة مقالا أثار ضجة كبيرة وقتها، بعنوان:-
“أبناء الزنى كيف صاروا أمراء المسلمين”، ووصل الأمر إلى أن أصدر الأزهر بيانًا، يرفض فيه ما جاء فى مقال عكاشة، إلا أنه رفض التراجع عما كتبه، مؤكدًا أن رأيه لا يعنى كفره بما هو معلوم فى الدين.
*إليكم نص المقال :::*
_*أبناء الزنى كيف صاروا أمراء المسلمين*_

أنه ليس من الصدفة أن يبدأ الصراع فى الجاهلية بين أولي الشرف من العرب كبنى هاشم ومخزوم وزهره وغيرهم، وبين من اشتهر بالعهر والزنا مثل بنى عبد شمس وسلول وهذيل، والذى امتد هذا الصراع إلى مابعد دخول كل العرب فى الإسلام.

ولم تكن من قبيل الصدفة أن أغلب من التحق بالركب الأموى كانوا ممن لهم سوابق بالزنا والبغاء، فهذه المهن تورث الكراهية والحقد لكل من يتحلى بالعفة والطهارة، إضافة إلى أنها لاتبقى للحياء سبيل وهى تذهب العفة وتفتح طريق الغدر والإثم والعهر.. لنرى بعض ما أنجب البغاء:

*1- حمامة أم أبى سفيان وهى زوجة حرب ابن امية بن عبد شمس، وهى جدة معاوية، كانت بغيا صاحبة راية فى الجاهلية.(الرايه)علم تضعه العاهره على دارها دلاله على البغاء، يعني مثل الملهى بتسمية وقتنا الحالي*

*2- الزرقاء بنت وهب، وهى من البغايا وذوات الأعلام أيام الجاهلية، وتلقب بالزرقاء، لشدة سوادها المائل للزرقة وكانت أقل البغايا أجرة، ويعرف بنوها بنو الزرقاء وهى زوجة أبى العاص بن أمية، أم الحكم بن أبى العاص (طرده الرسول من المدينة)، جدة مروان بن الحكم، يقال إن الحسين بن علي رد على رسول مروان بن الحكم قائلا، ” يابن الزرقاء الداعية إلى نفسها بسوق عكاظ“*.

*3- آمنة بنت علقمة بن صفوان أم مروان بن الحكم جدة عبد الملك بن مروان، وكانت تمارس البغاء سرًا مع أبى سفيان بن الحارث بن كلدة… وهذا مروان هو الذى أتوا به بعد ولادته الى رسول الله (ص) فقال الرسول ”ابعدوه عنى هذا الوزغ ابن الوزغ الملعون ابن الملعون ”وهذا الذ ى يلعنه الرسول يصبح أميرًا للمؤمنين..!!!!!*

*4- النابغة سلمى بنت حرملة، وقد اشتهرت بالبغاء العلني ومن ذوات الأعلام وهى أم عمرو بن العاص بن وائل، كانت أمَةً لعبد الله بن جدعان، فاعتقها فوقع عليها فى يوم واحد أبو لهب بن عبد المطلب وأمية بن خلف، وهشام بن المغيرة المخزومى وأبو سفيان بن حرب، والعاص بن وائل السهمى، فولدت عمرو، فادعاه كلهم لكنها ألحقته بالعاص بن وائل، لأنه كان ينفق عليها كثيرا…*

*5- سمية بنت المعطل النوبية، وهى من البغايا ذوات الأعلام، وكانت أمة للحارث بن كلدة، وتنسب أولادها ومنهم زياد مرة لزوجها عبيد بن أبى سرح الثقفى فيقال زياد بن عبيد ومرة يقال زياد ابن سمية ومرة زياد ابن أبيه، حتى استلحقه معاوية بأن أحضر شهودا على أن أبا سفيان قد واقع سمية وهى تحت عبيد بن أبى سرح، وبعد تسعة أشهر ولدت صبيا أسموه زياد. ولم يستلحقه معاوية حبا وكرامة ولكن لأن زياد بن أبيه كان عامل سيدنا على على فارس والاهواز فأراد استمالته.*

*ويستمر البغاء فى إنتاج رجال الرذيلة ليكونوا سادة العرب.*

*6- مرجانة بنت نوف وهى أمة لعبد الرحمن بن حسان بن ثابت، كان يصلها سفاحا العديد من الرجال، من بينهم زياد ابن أبيه فباعها عبد الرحمن وهى حامل من الزنا، فولدت عبدين هما عباد وعبيد الله ابنا مرجانة لا يعرف لهما أب، فاستدعاهما زياد واستلحقهما به… فكان عباد والى سجستان زمن معاوية، وعبيد الله بن زياد واليا على البصرة، حيث يبدو أن أمة العرب قد خلت من الأشراف لتنصيبهم فى هكذا مناصب، فلم يبق إلا أولاد الزنا، ولكن الطيور على أشكالها تقع؛ فرجل كمعاوية لا يمكنه استعمال رجل ذو فضيلة. وبعد أن كان عبيد الله ابن زياد واليا على البصرة زمن معاوية ولاه يزيد الكوفة، حيث قاتل الإمام الحسين حفيد نبى الأمة، حيث خاطبه الإمام بالدعى ابن الدعى.*

*وقيل للحسن البصرى: يا أبا سعيد قتل الحسين بن على، فبكى حتى اختلج جنباه ثم قال (واذلاه لأمّة قتل ابن دعيها ابن بنت نبيها)…*

*7- قطام بنت شحنة التيمية، وقد اشتهرت بالبغاء العلنى فى الكوفة وكانت لها قوادة عجوز اسمها لبابة، هى الواسطة بينها وبين الزبائن، كان أباها شحنة بن عدى وأخاها حنظلة بن شحنة من الخوارج، وقد قتلا معا فى معركة النهروان، فأصبحت والغل يأكل قلبها لهذا طلبت من عبد الرحمن ابن ملجم عندما جاء لخطبتها أن يضمن لها قتل سيدنا على (ع) ويصدقها بثلاثة آلاف درهم وغلام وجارية، فلم يشف غليل هذه الزانية مقتل الإمام بعدما سمعت بمقتل ابن ملجم أيضا، لهذا بعثت إلى مصر من وشى على جماعة من العلويين هناك عند الوالى عمرو ابن العاص، ابن البغى سلمى بنت حرملة، ومن هؤلاء الجماعة خولة بنت عبد الله وعبد الله وسعيد أبناء عمرو بن أبى رحاب.*

*8- نضلة بنت أسماء الكلبية وهى زوجة ربيعة بن عبد شمس وهى أم عتبة وشيبة الذين قتلا يوم بدر. يذكر الاصفهانى فى كتابه الأغانى أن أمية بن عبد شمس جاء ذات ليلة إلى دار أخيه ربيعة، فلم يجده فاختلى بزوجة أخيه وواقعها. فحبلت منه بعتبة.*

*ويروى أن أمية هذا ذهب الى الشام وزنى هناك بأمة يهودية فولدت له ولدا اسماه ذكوان، ولقبه أبو عمرو وجاء به إلى مكة داعيا أنه مولى له، حتى إذا كبر اعتقه واستلحقه، ثم زوجه امرأته الصهباء، قال ابن أبى الحديد إن أمية فعل فى حياته ما لم يفعله أحد من العرب، زوج ابنه ابو عمرو من امرأته فى حياته فولدت له أبا معيط ظدد جد الوليد بن عقبة بن أبى معيط، الذى ولاه عثمان الكوفة؛ حيث كان يأخذه النوم بعد أن يقضى ليلته فى شرب الخمر ولا يصحو على صلاة الفجر… هكذا كانوا ولاة أمور المسلمين!!!!*

*يروى أن عقبة بن أبى معيط لما أسره المسلمون يوم بدر أمر الرسول (ص) بقتله فقال يا محمد ناشدتك الله والرحم فقال الرسول ما انت وذاك انما انت ابن يهودى من أهل صفوريه.*

*9- هند بنت عتبة، وقد اشتهرت بالبغاء السرى فى الجاهلية هى زوجة أبى سفيان، وابنها معاوية يعزى الى اربعة نفر غير أبى سفيان، مسافر بن ابى عمرو بن امية، عمارة بن الوليد بن المغيرة، العباس بن عبد المطلب، والصباح مولى مغن لعمارة بن الوليد…*

*يروى أن، أمير المؤمنين علي، على (ع) قال فى كتابه إلى معاوية (… وأما قولك نحن بنى عبد مناف ليس لبعضنا فضل على بعض… فكذلك نحن… لكن ليس المهاجر كالطليق ولا الصريح كاللصيق…). وهى إشارة واضحة بإلصاق أصول معاوية بعبد مناف.*

*10- ميسون بنت بجدل الكلبية، هى ام يزيد بن معاوية، كانت تأتى الفاحشة سرا مع عبد لأبيها ومنه حملت بيزيد، ويروى أن معاوية خاصم ميسون، فأرسلها إلى اهلها بمكة وبعد فترة أرجعها إلى الشام وإذا هى حامل……!!!! قال يزيد للإمام الحسن ( يا حسن إنى أبغضك) فقال الإمام (ذلك لأن الشيطان شارك أباك حينما ساور أمك فاختلط المائان).*

*قال الامام محمد الباقر، (قاتل يحيى بن زكريا ولد زنا وقاتل الحسين ابن على ولد زنا ولا يقتل الأنبياء والأوصاء إلا أبناء البغايا).*

*11- آمنة بنت علقمة بن صفوان هى أم مروان بن الحكم كانت تمارس الزنا مع أبى سفيان فولدت مروان. اخرج ابن عساكر من طريق محمد القرظى قال (لعن رسول الله الحكم وما ولد الا الصالحين وهم قليل) وقالت السيدة عائشة (رض) لمروان (لعن الله اباك وانت فى صلبه، فانت بعض من لعنة الله ثم قالت والشجرة الملعونة فى القرآن).*

*هؤلاء هم الرجال الذين أسسوا الدولة الإسلامية، فلا غرابة أن نرى الدماء تلون كل أوراق تاريخنا!!!.*

Tribute to Nigeria Author Chinua Achebe

A Tribute to Chinua Achebe: – By Adejoh Idoko Momoh via NigeriaIntel.com

At the accomplished age of 82, Nigerian literary icon Chinua Achebe is dead.

Mostly acclaimed for his 1958 novel ‘Things Fall Apart’ which has sold a staggering 10 million copies and has been translated into about 100 languages, Achebe was until his death Professor of Africana Studies at Brown University.

To everyone, Achebe meant something.

To impressive writers like Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, he was a source of inspiration, a mentor of some sort. To school children, his literature helped shape language –the simplicity, courage of his writing: Achebe was never too complex to hinder understanding and never too simple to pass as pedestrian.

To activists, he was a fellow activist- having refused Nigerian national honors in 2004 and 2011, accusing the government of turning Nigeria into ‘a bankrupt and lawless fiefdom’.

To the Igbo’s, he was liberator- having played active roles in the 1967-70 struggle for Biafra’s liberation.

In whichever way you choose to describe Achebe, one undeniable fact is that without Achebe, the Nigerian country and language would not have evolved as far as it has.

According to his publishers ‘Penguin Books’, Achebe passed on the 21st March 2013. But it wasn’t until the next day I would hear of it. As my colleague broke the news, my immediate reaction was to question:

‘How can Achebe die?’

No, I didn’t think he was immortal and therefore incapable of dying, I just needed some time to have the sad news of his death sink in.

And giving that in a typical Nigerian day, you hear of the deaths of Nelson Mandela, Wole Soyinka amongst others, I wanted to confirm the news before I believed it. Looking back, I realize the news my colleague shared was mostly responsible for my sober mood all that day.

Let me say this, I am a writer with www.nigeriaintel.com, every other Thursday, I am obligated to produce an article that exposes some flaw in society, governance.

People have often asked if with my writing I am capable of making any change in response to these people, I would borrow a quote from Chinua Achebe:

“There is no moral obligation to write in a particular way. But there is a moral obligation, I think, not to ally oneself with power against the powerless.”

Being a man who spent his life sharing his gift with millions of us lovers of literature/ students/ writers Achebe challenges me to put my gifts to good use.

To not be selfish, write as much as I can. Never cease to speak up when I see people oppressed. From reviews I have read, his most recent work ‘There Was A Country’ very artfully blends painful memories, history and ideals while retaining its truthfulness.

I mourn Achebe’s physical death but I am consoled for I know among writers that he graciously shared his gifts, a part of him would in their writing live. For every student he touched, a part of him would in their intellect live.

For every activist, it is hoped that the lessons of his kindness, his boldness would be inspiration, and for all Igbo’s, they have the gift of pride. Knowing that they had a brother, father, son that made we all as a country proud.

Financial data, and Emails showing what Obama Admin and Hillary planned and executed

Note 1: I believe many of these statements: have been common news in the Middle-East. What the US media posted were Not current at the time. Whether this article is primarily meant to support the other crazy Trump is another subject matter

A few facts I have proof of that will finally set the record straight regarding Hillary Clinton and her coming death sentence. I am the Source.

I have the financial data, and the Emails that shows the Obama Admin planned and executed all of this.

1. Hillary took $1.2 Billion in cash, in laundered Russian money to approve Uranium One deal. Treason! 

2. She started the Libyan war, and executed Benghazi Embassy murders. War Crimes

3. She had Qaddafi assassinated  and planned to take out Assad next! War Crimes.

4. Hillary stole Libyan Oil wells and split them between UK and France as a bribe to join forces Bribes and war crimes

5. Took all the cash and Gold in the Palace.  War crimes (About $2bn in gold that Qaddafi amassed to counter liquidity shortages in dollars in the African countries)

6. Hillary ordered Libyan Sarin Gas to use in Syrians and blame Assad so they could start a war in 2011War Crimes, Human rights violations! 

7. Because of these wars in Libya and Syria and Yemen there is no working Government in these countries. War Crimes

8. Because of these wars started by Hillary and Obama, Millions have died and millions have become homeless and misplaced in other countries around the world. War Crimes, Human Rights violations.

9. She paid cash laundered money to the gang members of MS 13 to kill SETH RICH and over 110 other people who were about to testify against her in various court cases.
Murder

10. She is ring leader of various Child Sex Crimes and murder over the last 30 years. 5 cases on going !

11. She paid over $84 million in campaign funds to RIG the 2016 election and still failed. 

12. Proof of Election fraud from Obama, Podesta, DNC emails show over 5 million fake votes for HRC.  Voter Fraud many states!

13. Bernie Sander Votes were never counted by the DNC. All votes went to Hillary! Voter fraud!

14. Because of at least 5 million fraud votes counted for Hillary, once corrected and removes proves Donald Trump Won the Popular Vote also and will win again in 2020! Voter Fraud!

15. HRC took in illegal contributions from 18 foreign countries that amounted to millions paid to play moneys that she had to return in some cases, 18 Billion to Qatar, Millions to Saudi Arabia, and others listed in the DNC and HRC campaign contributions. Treason!

16. HRC has over 52 Law Suits against her in courts today across the Nation. 

If you aren’t yet made enough to kill, please seek professional help.

Alert the firing squad, She doesn’t deserve prison! 

This list is double this size, it’s 1 Am and need to sleep. more later. 
#HRC #Obama #Clinton #Libya #Syria #Yemen #VoterFraud#ChildsexCrimes #ChildTrafficking #ClintonGuilty #Treason

Note 2: The author of this post claims that Hillary declined the current plans to transfer Palestinians to Jordan, and thus the “Christian” Evangelical Zionists (The Deplorable ones) failed her in her Presidency.

I conjecture that the deplorable would have convinced her, but she would have taken more time.

At least would Not open several fronts in the same time: economic taxation on EU and China trades, getting out of the climate deal, the Iran nuclear deal, the Mexican trouble, the trade with Canada and Mexico, taking Mexican children hostage, getting out of UN Human rights commission, or even pronouncing Jerusalem Capital of Israel.

Though Clinton has become a firm Islamophobic and hate “Arabs”.

Myths of profiles of the gun-toting students in USA

Students often communicate their plans before attacks.
Kip Kinkel wrote in his journal, “Hate drives me. … I am so full of rage. … Everyone is against me. … As soon as my hope is gone, people die.”
After he was expelled for bringing a gun to school in Springfield, Ore., the 15-year-old killed his parents, then two students in the school cafeteria, on May 21, 1998.

By Bill Dedman. Investigative reporter. msnbc.com. updated 10/10/2007 3:44:58 PM ET

    The profile of the gun-toting student in a trench coat is just one of the myths about the rare but murderous attacks in the nation’s schools.

    Here are 10 myths about school shootings, compiled by MSNBC.com from a 2002 study by the U.S. Secret Service and the U.S. Department of Education.

    The researchers studied case files and other primary sources for 37 attacks by current or former students, and also interviewed 10 of the perpetrators.

    Myth No. 1. “He didn’t fit the profile.”

    In fact, there is no profile. “There is no accurate or useful ‘profile’ of students who engaged in targeted school violence,” the researchers found.

    The stereotypes of teens in Goth makeup or other types of dress are not useful in preventing attacks. Just as in other areas of security — workplace violence, airplane hijacking, even presidential assassination — too many innocent students will fit any profile you can come up with, and too many attackers will not.

    “The demographic, personality, school history, and social characteristics of the attackers varied substantially,” the report said.

    Attackers were of all races and family situations, with academic achievement ranging from failing to excellent.

    Most, but not all, have been male, though that fact alone doesn’t help an adult rule in or out someone as dangerous.

    Myth No. 2. “He just snapped.”

    Rarely were incidents of school violence sudden, impulsive acts.

    Attackers do not “just snap,” but progress from forming an idea, to planning an attack, to gathering weapons. This process can happen quickly, but sometimes the planning or gathering weapons are discoverable.

    Although the researchers point out that there is no “type of student” who is likely to commit such violence, there are “types of behaviors” that are common to planning or carrying out the attacks. This pattern, they say, gives some hope of intervening before an attack.

    Myth No. 3. “No one knew.”

    Before most of the attacks, someone else knew about the idea or the plan.

    “In most cases, those who knew were other kids: friends, schoolmates, siblings and others. However, this information rarely made its way to an adult.”

    Most attackers engaged in some behavior prior to the incident that caused concern or indicated a need for help.

    Myth No. 4. “He hadn’t threatened anyone.”

    Too much emphasis is placed on threats. Most attackers did not threaten anyone explicitly (“I’m going to kill the principal”), and most threateners don’t ever attack anyone.

    But less explicit words can reveal an intention, the researchers say. A child who talks of bringing a gun to school, or being angry at teachers or classmates, can pose a threat, whether or not an explicit threat is made.

    Myth No. 5. “He was a loner.”

    In many cases, students were considered in the mainstream of the student population and were active in sports, school clubs or other activities.

    Only one-quarter of the students hung out with a group of students considered to be part of a “fringe group.”

    Myth No. 6. “He was crazy.”

    Only one-third of the attackers had ever been seen by a mental health professional, and only one-fifth had been diagnosed with a mental disorder.

    Substance abuse problems were also not prevalent.

    “However, most attackers showed some history of suicidal attempts or thoughts, or a history of feeling extreme depression or desperation.”

    Most attackers had difficulty coping with significant losses or personal failures.

    (Students in Japan have much higher incidents of Not coping with feeling of failure, but they don’t go around and shoot  people: they just commit suicide. Weapons are Not for sale)

    Myth No. 7. “If only we’d had a SWAT team or metal detectors.”

    Despite prompt law enforcement responses, most shooting incidents were over well before a SWAT team could have arrived.  Metal detectors have not deterred students who were committed to killing themselves and others.

    Myth No. 8. “He’d never touched a gun.”

    Most attackers had access to weapons, and had used them prior to the attack. Most of the attackers acquired their guns from home. (One of their parents or close relatives initiated them to shoot)

    Myth No. 9. “We did everything we could to help him.”

    “Many attackers felt bullied, persecuted or injured by others prior to the attack,” and said they had tried without success to get someone to intervene. Administrators and teachers were targeted in more than half the incidents. (Responses were mostly lukewarm?)

    Myth No. 10. “School violence is rampant.”

    It may seem so, with media attention focused on a spate of school shootings. In fact, school shootings are extremely rare.

    Even including the more common violence that is gang-related or dispute-related, only 12 to 20 homicides a year occur in the 100,000 schools in the U.S.

    In general, school assaults and other violence have dropped by nearly half in the past decade. (Because many more are dropping out of school?

    “Dear Barbara Low…” Lawrence ,D.H. ( Mai 1916)
    « Ma chère Barbara. Je vous écrirais plus souvent, mais cette vie que nous menons aujourd’hui nous dégoûte tellement, ne laisse rien à dire.
    La guerre, la conscription qui approche, le sens de totale inutilité et de vilenie chaotique dans cette vie, cela vous ôte vraiment toute envie de discourir.
    C’est très joli ici, avec les genêts tout jaunes et la mer d’un bleu pervenche, brumeuse, et les fleurs qui sortent sur le terrain communal.
    Le sentiment du péril gâche tout – le sentiment que l’on peut d’un jour à l’autre vous jeter dans la fosse à purin du monde, le danger d’être traîné dans ce répugnant conglomérat, le dégoût total et la nausée que vous inspirent l’humanité, les gens qui sentent le cafard,
    Ces masses sans fin, sans aucun relief: c’est si difficile à supporter.
    J’ai commencé la seconde partie de L’Arc-en-ciel. Mais déjà c’est au-delà de tout espoir que cela soit jamais publié, en raison des choses qui y sont dites.
    Et plus que cela, c’est au-delà de toute possibilité même de l’offrir à un monde, à une humanité en putréfaction comme la nôtre. J’ai le sentiment que je ne pourrais plus toucher l’humanité, même en pensée, je l’ai en horreur.
    Mais une œuvre d’art est un acte de foi, comme dit Michel Ange, et on continue d’écrire, pour les témoins invisibles.
    Il n’y a aucune aide, aucun espoir, rien de rien – y a-t-il jamais eu pareil puits sans fond?
    Et il n’y aura ni espoir ni aide. Il est très difficile de continuer à tenir, même à l’intérieur de soi.
    Mais la vérité va bien, elle. C’est simplement le sentiment d’être englouti au plus profond de la mer, avec l’horrible masse de l’humanité et l’universelle fausseté qui vous maintiennent au fond, à vous faire éclater les veines.
    J’étais très bien, mais j’ai été un peu mal fichu ces derniers jours – ce qui explique en partie cette lettre. Pourtant, c’est la vraie vérité de l’affaire.
    Nous serons très heureux de vous voir cet été, si nous sommes encore ici. J’espère que vous aimerez Brunswick Square. Saluti du cuore. »

    Stick to drunkenness condition: Charles Baudelaire
    Khalil Toubia shared Littérature et Poésie‘s photo.
    ENIVREZ-VOUS
    Il faut être toujours ivre. Tout est là: c’est l’unique question.
    Pour ne pas sentir l’horrible fardeau du Temps qui brise vos épaules et vous penche vers la terre, il faut vous enivrer sans trêve. Mais de quoi ?
    De vin, de poésie ou de vertu, à votre guise. Mais enivrez-vous.
    Et si quelquefois, sur les marches d’un palais, sur l’herbe verte d’un fossé, dans la solitude morne de votre chambre, vous vous réveillez, l’ivresse déjà diminuée ou disparue, demandez au vent, à la vague, à l’étoile, à l’oiseau, à l’horloge, à tout ce qui fuit, à tout ce qui gémit, à tout ce qui roule, à tout ce qui chante, à tout ce qui parle, demandez quelle heure il est, et le vent, la vague, l’étoile, l’oiseau, l’horloge, vous répondront:
    « Il est l’heure de s’enivrer ! Pour n’être pas les esclaves martyrisés du Temps, enivrez-vous ; enivrez-vous sans cesse ! De vin, de poésie ou de vertu, à votre guise.”

    Dyslexic? Richard Branson
    Actually, scores of famous and glamorous people are dyslexic.
    incredible story! Richard Branson… this is how creativity comes about!
    In 1966, a dyslexic sixteen–year–old boy dropped out of school and he definitely got his money’s worth!
    How many of us have had flights cancelled and considered it the end of the world at times?
    Richard Branson opted for a more creative solution! Take a look at how his mind works!
    “I was in my late twenties, so I had a business, but nobody knew who I was at the time. I was headed to the Virgin Islands and I had a very pretty girl waiting for me, so I was — umm — determined to get there on time.
    At the airport, my final flight to the Virgin Islands was cancelled because of maintenance or something. It was the last flight out that night.
    I thought this was ridiculous, so I went and chartered a private airplane to take me to the Virgin Islands, which I did not have the money to do.
    Then, I picked up a small blackboard, wrote “Virgin Airlines. $29.” on it, and went over to the group of people who had been on the flight that was cancelled.
    I sold tickets for the rest of the seats on the charter plane, used their money to pay for the plane, and we all went to the Virgin Islands that night.”
