Rumors that my pal Andrew Krystal has a Christ complex are greatly exaggerated


I see by my site meter that I have a hit from Halifax, Nova Scotia.

It's probably from my phone- in radio pal, Andrew Krystal. Andrew has left CFRB in Toronto to work in Halifax. Halifax? Is that where they send a sharp-tongued Stephen Colbert in Canada?
Andrew is the the founder of the Krystal Nation, which has a large cult following. Surely, Andrew wasn't sent to Halifax because he peed-off the Pope.
Again?
Gotta say Andrew has a graphic sense.
I think he has a Christ complex, though I'm sure he's not exactly Catholic.
Still my radio pal!
I won a couple of prizes after spending some air time with Andrew on CFRB Toronto.
Missing his sharp wit and on-air company.
(Yeah, I know. God is going to get both of us for this blog!)

Benji,

Congatulations on having a chapter of your novel published in a Ghanaian newspaper.

It is late at night, and I only read the first few papragraphs.
Looks good!

Benjibopper,

You must get Andrew Krystal every morning 9-12 on "Maritime Morning."

Ain't he somethin' else?

Talking about his gay brother in Truro, Nova Scotia.

Truro?

They'll tar and feather him.

Ascerbic sometimes though.

History Lesson
(Embedded image moved to file: pic26463.jpg)
Have a history teacher explain this----- if they can.

Abraham Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846.
John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.
John F. Kennedy was elected President in 1960.

Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.
Both wives lost their children while living in the White House.

Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.
Both Presidents were shot in the head.

Now it gets really weird.

Lincoln 's secretary was named Kennedy.
Kennedy's Secretary was named Lincoln .

Both were assassinated by Southerners.
Both were succeeded by Southerners named Johnson.

Andrew Johnson, who succeeded Lincoln , was born in 1808.
Lyndon Johnson, who succeeded Kennedy, was born in 1908.
(Embedded image moved to file: pic01588.jpg)(Embedded image moved to file:

John Wilkes Booth, who assassinated Lincoln , was born in 1839.
Lee Harvey Oswald, who assassinated Kennedy, was born in 1939.
(Embedded image moved to file: pic00608.jpg)(Embedded image moved to file:
pic32060.jpg)

Both assassins were known by their three names.
Both names are composed of fifteen letters.

Now hang on to your seat.

Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford.'
Kennedy was shot in a car called ' Lincoln ' made by 'Ford.'

Lincoln was shot in a theater and his assassin ran and hid in a warehouse.

Kennedy was shot from a warehouse and his assassin ran and hid in a
theater.

Booth and Oswald were assassinated before their trials.

And here's the kicker...

A week before Lincoln was shot, he was in Monroe , Maryland
A week before Kennedy was shot, he was with Marilyn Monroe.

Creepy huh? Send this to as many people as you can, cause: Hey, this is
one history lesson people don't mind reading
