Justice Clarence Thomas prefers to not ask questions during oral arguments; just let them speak and present their case. He’s also known as the RV Park Supreme Court Justice, by me that is, because of how every summer he goes out like Ernest Borgnine cruising the countryside in his RV getting to know the regular folks at RV parks, truck stops, and home improvement centers; the people who make this country work. Now saying that these people are the people who make this country work is by no means a slap in the face to the elites of this country, because you too have a place in making this country work, it’s just that your part is not as great or as important as the regular folk’s part is. So do not feel bad because you are important too, and we love you, well kind of; we accept you; we tolerate you.
Now I will move on to Justice Thomas, the Justice of the common man. He is by far my favorite Justice who has served on the court in my lifetime. Some of the things that I like about him is the importance that he puts on the family, the individual, and on interpreting the Constitution in a constructionist way. He believes as I do that the Constitution is not a living document, that it is dead. And that the only way for it to “live” is for an amendment to be added, and that is it, other than that, it is what it is, and it must be interpreted as it was written. You cannot, nor should you, “read” anything into it. What you need to do is to just read it, as it was written, and with the meaning of those who wrote it. This to me is a very simple concept and one that I wish more Justices would subscribe to.
Here’s the direct link to the interview in its entirety:
“We Didn’t Know He Was Clarence Thomas”
High school students share a plane ride, invite him to graduation
High school seniors Terrence Stephens and Jason Ankrah, star football players at Quince Orchard High School in Gaithersburg, Md., were sitting on a plane returning from a recruitment session at the University of Nebraska when they struck up a conversation with the man sitting next to them.
Their seat-mate just happened to be a major Cornhuskers fan.
When they started chatting, Stephens and Ankrah didn’t have a clue they were holding court with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
“I was amazed this guy knew so much about us as football players and as people,” said Stephens. “That was shocking. I felt honored to be known by someone of his caliber. He was just a regular old guy, sitting in coach, which really shocked me.”
By the time the plane landed, the students had figured out who Thomas was, and they promptly told their principal they wanted to invite Thomas to give the keynote speech at their high school graduation. Of course, Principal Carole Working didn’t exactly think Thomas would take them up on it. But he showed up at the high school on Monday.
“These young men had no idea who I was as I formed my first impression. I was just another stranger to them. They were wonderful ambassadors for your school and for their fellow students,” said Thomas at the Quince Orchard graduation ceremony.
When Stephens and Ankrah arrived on-stage to receive their diplomas, they were both embraced by Justice Thomas.
Ankrah will be playing football for Nebraska next year, but Stephens will be attending Stanford. The justice said he doesn’t have any hard feelings over that.

Does anyone know a good RV park in Key West were you can live year round?
Most of the sites,below will give you the info you will need. They are expensive for daily use much less yearly. Remember, you shall evacuate in case of hurricane threat. I would prefer to stay North of Key West and save a few bucks.
Good luck and travel safe.

try to pull out a RV parts list. Comes up in note pad and it comes out printed like gibbersih. How can I fix??
When a program saves information to a file, it writes all the information in a format, using various characters and strings etc; that enables it to understand the contents of the file the next time the program opens the file. So you must open the file using the program that created it or any program that understands that file format. In other words if you save a document using word and open it with notepad you’ll see a whole bunch of gibberish because notepad doesn’t know how to interpret word 2007 files. If you open that same document using the latest Open Office for example, it will display correctly.
If you type the word hello in notepad and save it, the file will be 5 bytes big. If you type the word hello in Microsoft word and save the document the file will be about 24064 bytes big. This difference is created because MS word needs to save information about what the document like what colour each word was typed in, the font, who typed it, security settings etc. When you open the word document using notepad, theres a whole bunch of gibberish because notepad reads each byte of saved information as a character, whereas MS Word would interpret it as formating or text to be displayed.
What you need to do is find out what program created the file. Go to Control Panel. Open Folder Options. Click on the VIEW tab. Uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types". Now goto where the document is saved and check the file extension. Search for the file extension online or ask another question about it and see if you can find out what program created it or can read the file. A file extension is the three letters (some times more) at the end of the filename usually after the last dot in the filename (assuming your operating system isn’t hiding it). For example: .doc, .xls, .docx, .dat.
.xls is a microsoft excel file and can be opened using microsoft excel or any other program that understands how to read a MS excel document, like Open Office.
If the file opens and displays correctly on the screen in notepad but when you us the print function and your printer prints it as gibberish; it’s more likely that the problem is the printer driver. Check that you selected to print to the correct printer.
I hope that points you in the right direction.
