50th Reunion Reflections

IT WAS THE BEST three days of my life. I did not eat a thing at any of the events I was so busy talking to everyone. It was very emotional for me f and I was so happy to see everyone.

Hi, First I want to thank everyone for birthday wishes . , especially Jon and Alan. I thought we were done with the political bickering which has led to vicious personal attacks. There is many to blame for this current crisis.; but the one that most responsible that I see is the Chinese government for not being transparent. I think it was probably an accident in a lab that they covered up and they could not control it. Do not blame Trump alone. The health organizations and scientists were late as well.iI think he is doing the best he can but his arrogance gets in the way. We are in the twilight of our lives let’s stop the politics and attacks; chill the fuck out! I suggest watch some mindless TV like the Housewives of New York or New Jersey or anything on Bravo. We together will beat this disease. Ginny

Hi everyone I hope all is well under the circumstances. Tomorrow, May 1 is my birthday and it is time for me to reflect. I have had a good life filled with adventure as most of you know about through reading and TV. I was born into a good middle class family in Mt Airy. I knew at a young age that my family, through my Dad’s working sometimes Seven days a week that we were very comfortable. Growing into adulthood I was being compared to my Dad by others , not my parents.This had a very profound pressure that I put on myself causing me to drift into a world of prescription and gambling abuse that ruined my first marraige . I went to school in Atlanta and law school in New York., lived in London as well my 15 seconds of fame came when I was involved with the Oman Ghana Trust Fund in the 1980s. It was an adventure of a lifetime , flying back and forth on the Concorde, meeting with people from all over the world and Swiss bankers. It all came crashing down when I realized it was a fraud and informed the US , state and local authorities who thought that I was out of my mind and this was not true.. I wore wires for the US government and had death threats against me and my family.It became a nightmare. A nice Jewish boy getting involved in the world’s biggest fraud up until the Madof scandal. It finally resolved with the conviction of the chief American agent for the trust. Stories followed in many national and local magazines and newspapers around the world.culminating with me being interviewed by Ed Bradley for “60” minutes. My father was proud of me and said that the pressure I had endured was greater than he faced fighting under George Patton for four years. I had stopped this fraud from ruining thousands of more lives. Over the years my life calmed down quite a bit got remarried to a great girl, Ilene and had two more children Adam and Remi, who is graduating from Northeastern University with high honors after going on a full paid academic scholarship.. Adam is in law school and I am proud of him as well. The only problem I now have is my heath having had pneumonia sepia and ARDS three times which resulted in being put on ventilators.i was declared brain dead in 2011 and was told that,if I survived I would be a vegetable .the doctors were wrong although Ilene sometimes thinks I am brain dead. My days consist now of walking around the country club myself or with Truffles our dog oh 11 years. I listen to Howard Stern watch tv and suggest that you all watch Ozark, Fauda, Bosch and UnorthodoxI just watched the Sopranos again and was even better this time. It was a perfect series. The funniest was when AJ tried to kill himself in the family pool by putting a plastic bag over his head, throwing the stereo in the pool and tying a cinderblock with a long rope to his foot. I know this is wrong but when a construction owner tried to get his mostly African American workers back off the Pickett line Tony told him to “call animal control.” I have been to Costco and supermarkets more now than ever I do not know what that is about but we have 4 mouths to feed. The best show now is Trump’s press briefings in which he does not answer a question and fights with the reporters and contradicts the doctors and scientists. I think he his trying his best but his arrogance gets the better of him. I do think his foreign policy is good in that finally we are not being taken advantage of by the world on trade and he is trying to get out of our longest war. I do also watch Cuomo”s briefings and am very impressed by him although I am not as liberal as him.in closing this rant, this virus will pass,humans are resilient and we will get together again. . In the immortal words “don’t worry; Be Happy and tomorrow I will celebrate buy inject myself with Lysol if I can find some. sincerely, Ginnu
