Kondomari. The shooting was the first of a long series of mass
was orchestrated by
Kurt Student, in retaliation for the participation of Cretans in the
Battle of Crete which had ended with the surrender of the island
only two days earlier. Men, women and children were forced to gather in
the village square. Then, a number of hostages was selected among the
men while women and children were released. The hostages were led to the
surrounding olive groves and later fired upon in cold blood. The exact
number of the victims is unclear. According to German records, a total
of 23 men were killed but other sources raise the toll to about 60.

Here is a video of Paul Gray--(not to give preference to him), but on Wikipedia they only show him masked...what slipknot is known for. Ahh - got to me bad, seeing Corey Taylor crying. I at one time did not enjoy this band as I have since I quit trying to read into things. He was just a humble guy.
Thank you, Shari!

"Feeling better?" Did I say that?!? Hmmm. Well, um, I do have occasional "good" days (relatively speaking), but I'm rather beginning to think my warranty has expired.....

FromArcaMax Jokes - 06/01/10:
As a nightclub owner, I hired a pianist and a drummer to entertain my customers. After several performances, I discovered the drummer had walked away with some of my valuables. I notified police, who arrested him.
Desperate for another drummer, I called a friend who knew some musicians. "What happened to the drummer you had?" he asked me.
"I had him arrested," I replied.
My friend paused for a second and asked, "Wow...How badly did he play?"
