Veazy on Sturm, Hustler and ‘Solid Gold’

Dear Editor:

Oh, Melanie Sturm, your columnist trips in political economy writings can be admired only to an extent. That is only to an extent! (“Blame cronyism, not capitalism,” Oct. 13, 2011, The Aspen Times)

You obviously have not studied industry, economic and business cycles, let alone nature’s cycles, that determine predictabilities with assured expectations in behaviors of political economies.

You obviously would like to break the law, by even being a 21st-century bankster, but do not have the guts to join the plundering by crony capitalists and the rest of the white-collar criminals that our U.S. Justice Department prosecutes and puts in prison in greater numbers.

Because of my educational training and pursuits I can more accurately predict future U.S. booms and busts than you because the available abundant historical information and correlation are extensive, catalogued, interpreted and tested by time throughout the decades.

The most recent housing boom-and-bust cycle was easily predictable as to when it would happen.

The housing industry demise you write about is, for your personal information, the 18 2/3-year real estate cycle. Only the very most astute know about it, and we are a chosen few.

Baby, take it from me and the Beverly Hills business and leadership crowd what I announced in March 1988: In my question at the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce breakfast at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif., in March 1988 I asked the guest speaker, then-Great Western Savings Bank Chairman Robert Montgomery, a question concerning the 18 2/3-year real estate cycle. Mr. Montgomery was floored (blown away) and did not know about the 18 2/3-year real estate (just as your local bankers, local mortgage lenders and local realtors are ignorant of it).

Melanie Sturm, for your personal consumption, Great Western Savings Bank was headquartered in Beverly Hills, Calif., at that time. When it disappeared shortly after my revealing question, one of Beverly Hills’ then and still top-10 employers took over the entire former headquarters of Great Western Savings Bank. Yes, you guesses him: the famous Larry Flynt still runs his business empire from that entire building at Wilshire Boulevard and La Cienega in the Beverly Hills Panhandle of zip code 90211.

For your information, “Hustler” girls are hot! In 1986 I had the good fortune to introduce “Miss Hustler August 1986” to a studio audience and to the “Solid Gold” studio crew at the “Solid Gold” studio taping session featuring the fabulous Smokey Robinson.

“Solid Gold” producer Brad Lachmann produced his weekly television show at Paramount Studios in Hollywood. Aahhhh, Brad Lachmann Production had a great show, don’t you agree?

Do not cat scratch at Fannie Mae and purr about the deceased Steve Jobs of Apple. Think about the freedom Larry Flynt gave you to appear in newsprint and write what you have written.

You can bank on Larry Flynt. He has big bucks that keep rolling in, doesn’t he?

State issues Vail Resorts a notice of violation for 2021 fish kill

Vail Resorts has received notice of violation and a cease and desist order in the wake of a spill, which qualifies as a “discharge of pollutants,” last year from part of the Vail Mountain snowmaking system that ultimately resulted in a fish kill in Gore Creek.
