Melvin Dummar says a grand conspiracy has denied him his portion of billionaire Howard Hughes' vast estate. Many consider Dummar to be a fraud but an in-depth investigation by Gary Magnesen has apparently shown Dummar to be a good samaritan who saved Hughes from certain death. Both joined George Knapp to discuss why Hughes was in the desert, as well as those who schemed to deny Dummar and several institutions of their rightful share of the Hughes estate. In the first hour, veteran music journalist Joel Selvin talked about the notorious Rolling Stones Altamont concert of 1969, considered by many to be rock’s darkest day.
I noticed a photo of some clouds in Iowa on your website. Gavin Pretor-Pinney and his England-based Cloud Appreciation Society seem to think this is some new category of cloud. This phenomenon is nothing new. I took this photo March 25th, 2009 [in Fort Worth, Texas]. I hadn't seen clouds like this since May 3rd, 1999 near Moore Oklahoma, when a record breaking F5 tornado tore a twenty mile swath across the city, leaving a path of destruction one mile wide. Fortunately the storm in this photo fizzled out pretty quickly. I feel we're in for some violent weather action sometime this summer though.
