El edificio comenzó a construirse en el año 1191 y las obras finalizaron el año 1256.

Los suizos la llaman Zeitglockenturm o sea la Torre del Reloj. Y la llaman así desde que su construcción acabó, allá por 1120.

Al principio, su función fue meramente defensiva, ya que era la puerta de entrada a la ciudad, y formaba parte del sistema defensivo de Berna. Mucho tiempo después, es decir unos cinco siglos, alguien decidió que su función debía alterarse y por ello ser embellecida, por lo que llamaron a Kaspar Brunner, uno de los mejores relojeros de la Confederación Helvética para que rediseñara el aspecto de la torre.

Con carta blanca en cuanto a fondos y diseño, el hábil mecánico del tiempo construyó un precioso y único reloj astronómico que marcaría desde ese momento la hora, el día, el mes y la posición del Zodiaco en relación con la Tierra, que en ese momento era considerada como el centro del Universo. ¡Vaya con la teoría egocentrista!

El sol, la luna y las estrellas, orbitando alrededor de la tierra, sirven de adorno al objetivo del reloj, dar la hora. El mismo sol atraviesa los 12 signos del Zodiaco en el curso del año y una pequeña abertura en un lado, casi imperceptible nos da el día de la semana..en alemán antiguo.

Pero no es realmente todo ese complejo mecanismo y sistema del astrolabio lo que atrae diariamente a miles de turistas, sino que cada hora se pone en marcha una serie de autómatas para anunciar que una hora más de nuestras vidas acaba de terminar.

Aproximadamente 3 minutos antes de la hora, un gallo mecánico canta y anuncia el inminente cambio de las agujas. Inmediatamente después desfila un oso. Poco después desfila un oso que representa a la guardia y símbolo de la ciudad, luego canta el gallo por segunda vez. Suena una campana que da paso a Cronos, dios del tiempo, con su reloj de arena. Al desaparecer el dios, canta el gallo de nuevo y acaba el espectáculo de los autómatas.

Bajo la torre hay varios frescos que simbolizan la Creación y la expulsión del Paraíso de Adán y Eva y varias barras metálicas de colores, encastradas en la pared, que eran la medida oficial para la venta de telas y otros menesteres medievales que necesitaban ser rígidamente controlados para evitar la estafa de los mercaderes.

Una maravilla de la mecánica y de la historia de Berna. (Robertogonzalez197) De Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

IN ENGLISH BELOW THE LINE

 

Es tracta d'un ferrotip de format 13x18cm, realitzat amb una càmera Konrad G. Seitz fabricada cap al 1895; objectiu petzval Lerebours et Secretan, fabricat a Paris cap al 1848!!.

 

Les plaques de col·lodió es realitzen al moment, cobrint una placa de vidre o planxa metal·lica negra amb col·lodió i sals de cadmi i/o potassi, sensibilitzat amb nitrat de plata. Aleshores s'ha de fer la fotografia i revelar-la en uns 5 minuts, abans no s'assequi la emulsió. És un dels processos fotogràfics més antics del món, inventat el 1851, i que dominà fins el 1880. Però ara ha resorgit, ja que les imatges, molt treballades, que dona són úniques, màgiques i i irrepetibles.

=====================

 

This is a 13x18cm tintype, made with a Konrad G. Seitz tailboard camera in Nuremberg c.1895; Lerebours et Secretan petzval lens, made in Paris c.1848!.

 

The collodion plates are made covering a glass plate or black metal plate with collodion and salts of cadmium and / or potassium, sensitized with silver nitrate. Then you have to take the photo and reveal it in about 5 minutes, before the emulsion dries. It is one of the oldest photographic processes in the World, invented in 1851, and which dominated photography until 1880. But now it has resurfaced, as the images, very elaborate to create, that it gives are unique, razor sharp, magical and unrepeatable.

Palabras clave de la semana.

Toy.-

estafa.-

uta no puedo.-

ya estoi muerto?

que ganas de verte.

cuidate

lo olvidé

yo te doi la señal.

me avisai?

vamos?

    

los invito a que me digan sus palabras clave de la semana!

Me temo que esta fotografía os va a resultar una pequeña estafa... o grande, aún no lo he decidido.

 

Me hacía mucha ilusión poder compartir con vosotros alguna imagen de Castroviejo. Quería ser capaz de transmitir su impresionante belleza, la paz que se respira "caminando" entre, y sobre, sus formaciones rocosas (sería más adecuado decir brincando 😛).

 

Me hubiera encantado resumir Castroviejo en una única foto.

 

Imagino que no es una tarea imposible. Quiero pensar que quizás dentro de diez años habré aprendido lo suficiente como para acercarme, siquiera un poquito, a mis ingenuas pretensiones. Pero, si eso ocurriera, no será hasta dentro de mucho tiempo y únicamente en caso de que, para entonces, yo aún pueda corretear por las rocas como las cabras (Esto es una metáfora, evidentemente... En lugar de corretear lo más que hice fue caminar a ritmo de caracol salvo cuando me resbalaba agarrando lo primero que pillaba; todo ello aderezado con esos inagotables e inútiles grititos que me acompañan a cada rato desde que nací 😂)

 

Mientras tanto me tengo que conformar con enseñaros una de los cientos de fotos que hice del lugar. Para haceros una mínima idea de su inmensidad os recomiendo que ampliéis la imagen. Cuando lo hagáis podréis comprobar que la mancha, que se aprecia minúscula al fondo, es en realidad un árbol bastante grande. Puede que con este apaño alcancéis a intuir la sobrecogedora presencia de las rocas en Castroviejo... Una pena no poder hacerle justicia.

Con mi socio sato, es el DWK.

The KOM League

Flash Report

August 3, 2021

 

After hours and hours of contemplating attempting to write another report the result is available at: www.flickr.com/photos/60428361@N07/51355466713 Try to read it. If it isn’t possible return the unused/unread portion for a complete refund.

 

It has been nearly two months since an attempt has been made to formulate, let alone transmit a Flash Report. A lot of time has been afforded the old batboy to sit and look at his I-pad and work the Intermet looking for clues of former KOM league who were; found, never located and deceased. That is basis for this effort.

 

Leading off is the first obituary that has ever been shared in Spanish. The reason its not in English is due to my lack of bilinguality. The deceased is Ernie Garcia who I saw play at the Carthage ballpark, in 1951. He was the shortstop for Ted Gullic’s Bartlesville Pirates. He formed a good doubleplay combination with the late E. C. Leslie of Kansas City, Missouri who spent his adult life coaching/teaching high school in Lubbock, Texas.

 

Following the Ernie Garcia obituary are tributes to Richard Pertzborn of the 1947 Independence Yankees , Ray Haley of that same franchise in 1948, Ernest Jordan Jr—1950 Ponca City Dodgers, Carroll Ethan Bryan and Edward Humphrey Hughes Jr.—1952 Blackwell Broncos, Merlin Leo Jorgensen—1951 Bartlesville Pirates and 1952 Pittsburg/Bartlesville Pirates, Robert Wesley James—1951 Pittsburg Browns and another shot of identifying a member of the 1950 Bartlesville Pirates who was either James Parker Williams or James Park Williams.

 

So, sit back and relax, This is going to be a very long report. Feel free to hit the delete key at anytime. However, before doing so you might consider saving it for future reading as there isn’t a promise of future reports. That is being said due to the fact that it isn’t possible to document there are more than 136 former KOM leaguers currently emitting carbon dioxide.

 

There are possibly another 25 former KOM leaguers still on this earthly plane but either the inability to locate them, on my part, or their ignoring letters, telephone calls and e-mails it is not possible to provide an exact count.

Ernesto “Natas” Garcia

Bartlesville Pirates 2nd baseman 1951—Passed away April 2, 2017

(Jack Morris, Baseball Necrologist provided this information)

El amigo Luis Alarcón, presidente del Concejo Municipal del Salón de la Fama del Deportista Nogalense, nos da la triste noticia del sentido deceso de Ernesto “Natas” García, un excelentísimo segunda base que también marcó época en la Liga de la Costa del Pacífico, la Mexicana de Béisbol, la Invernal Sonora y Sonora-Sinaloa y la Norte de Sonora.

 

Su fallecimiento, por causas naturales de su edad, ocurrió a las 23:15 horas del sábado en la ciudad de Tucson.

 

“Natas”, nació el 7 de noviembre de 1932 en Nogales y desde el pasado 26 de enero de 2016 forma parte del Recinto Sagrado de esa frontera.

 

En la Costa del Pacífico fue parte del equipo Naranjeros de Hermosillo que se adjudicaron el bicampeonato en 1955-56 y 56-57 tripulados por Hub Kittle.

 

En la campaña del 55-56, Hermosillo tuvo a Joe Brovia, Earl “Búfalo” Averill, Bob Bowman, Leo Rodríguez, Ventura Morales, Pepe Bache, Ernesto “Natas” García y Ray Garza.

El pitcheo lo encabezaron Don Nichols y Jimmy Ochoa con 13 y 11 victorias. Los otros lanzadores fueron Pete Meza, “Ciclón” Echeverría, Arnulfo Manzo y Librado Ceceña.

 

Esa temporada le ganaron el play off por el título a Navojoa. A la siguiente repetirían en el trono, también dirigidos por Hub Kittle y donde el “Natas” fue el gran segunda base estelar.

 

Cuando la campaña 54-55, al “Natas lo encontramos luciendo en la primera serie en el Estadio de “La Casa del Pueblo” en el siguiente line up: Ernesto “Natas” García (2b), Leo Rodríguez (3b), Claudio Solano (lf), Joe Brovia (rf), Leon Kellman (ca), Dick Hogan (cf), Raymundo Garza (1b), Rubén Amaro (ss) y el pítcher Mel Queen.

 

Sin duda, otro notable equipo de esa época.

 

En 1956 fue parte de los campeones Diablos Rojos del México haciendo mancuerna con el “Chero” Mayers y estableciendo marcas en doble plays; también en 1961 ayudó al Águila de Veracruz a obtener el gallardete.

 

Sus estadísticas

 

En la Liga Mexicana de Béisbol logró los siguientes números después de 14 años de actividad donde concluyó con .278 de porcentaje de bateo.

 

Vio acción en 1,260 juegos, anotó 726 carreras, pegó 1,298 hits, 70 jonrones y produjo 485 carreras. Se estafó las bases en 36 ocasiones.

 

Se retiró en 1970.

En la Liga Invernal de Sonora y Sonora Sinaloa:

En cuatro años bateó .270, jugó 224 partidos, anotó 90 veces, pegó 230 hits, 9 jonrones e impulsó 94 carreras. Tuvo once estafas.

 

Su última temporada en el béisbol invernal fue en 1966. Descanse en paz. Nuestras condolencias a su señora esposa Alejandrina García, sus hijas Mayra y Diana Duarte, así como sus seis nietos.

 

Sólo once en MLB

 

Qué cosa: de los once peloteros mexicanos en la Gran Carpa, 10 son lanzadores!

Únicamente el “Titán” figura en un line up ligamayorista, ya sabe usted, como todo un estelar de los Dodgers de Los Ángeles.

 

La lista de pitchers, la compone: Jorge de la Rosa (Dbacks); Marco Estrada y Roberto Osuna (Toronto); Yovani Gallardo (Seattle); Óliver Pérez y Fernando Salas (Mets); Sergio Romo (Dodgers); Jaime García (Bravos); Joakim Soria (KC), y Miguel González (White Sox).

 

Tendré que volverme a poner los arreos y ponerme en forma para buscar una oportunidad en la Gran Carpa y acompañar a Adrián.

 

Claro, hay paisanos con probabilidad de ascender: Sebastián Elizalde (Rojos); Daniel Castro, de nuevo (Rockies); Xorge Carrillo (Mets); Christian Villanueva (Padres), y Alí Solís (Dodgers)).

Y como pitchers, Cesar Vargas (Padres), Luis Cessa y Giovanny Gallegos (NYY); Rafael Martín (Mets) y Julio Urías y Manny Bañuelos (Dodgers).

 

Ed comment:

 

It is possible to go through each paragraph of Garcia’s obituary and figure out how long he played, some of his statistics and some of the better known names of guys with whom he played. I believe he was also a scout and it appears that he signed a young man by the name of Gallegos, for the Yankees, who is now the property of the St. Louis Cardinals and threw an inning of relief as late as August 1, 2021.

After obtaining his Masters' Degree from LSU University, he was recruited to teach and coach football at East Aurora High School.

Ed comment

 

Ray Haley attended many KOM league events and even made a trip to my baseball dungeon to take a look at something he helped purchase for the Don Davis family at the close of the 1948 season. The item was a brass horse with a detachable saddle. The price of the steed was around $100 and also chipping in to purchase it were; Al Pilarcik, Jim Finigan, Billy Bagwell, Nick Ananias, Jim Davis and Charley Joe Fontana.

 

That horse came to graze in the KOM League Hall of Fame pasture in the 1990’s and if memory serves correctly it has been shared in story and image in previous reports. It must be said that over all those 73 years the animal looks as good as the day it was presented to the Davis family for their kindness and friendship to the Independence players. The horse made it way to Reno, Nevada, from Independence after the eldest of the Davis family passed away. The daughter went to Independence, from Reno, to settle the estate. After arriving in Reno she decided it needed to be around the KOM crowd and it has been given good care for going a a quarter century. Incidentally, it is looking over my shoulder as this is being written.

Richard Pertzborn—Pitcher 1947 Independence Yankees

 

Richard J. Pertzborn, 93, of Ankeny, Iowa, died due to complications of Parkinson’s disease on December 30th, 2020. A funeral mass will be held on Thursday, January 7 at 12:00 pm, with visitation starting at 11:00 am at All Saints Catholic Church, Des Moines, Iowa.

 

A private burial will be at Glendale Cemetery. Richard was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. He graduated from Dowling High School in 1945. While attending Dowling he enjoyed playing sports. He was a standout catcher on the baseball team which led to an invitation to tryout with the St. Louis Cardinals Farm Team.

 

He put his baseball career on hold to serve his country and joined the United States Marine Corps serving stateside in World War II and the Korean War. After serving his country he pursued his dream of playing baseball professionally and signed with the NY Yankees. He played with the KMO league (Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma). Unfortunately, a shoulder injury ended his baseball career. In 1948 he married the love of his life, Maryann Fehn. They built their home in Ankeny, Iowa, where they raised nine children.

 

Richard became a successful independent insurance agent, earning numerous professional achievements. It’s easy to see why he was so successful, he was a hardworking, dedicated, trustworthy, outgoing man who enjoyed talking with anyone. Richard was involved in several organizations and served on many boards. He was the first Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus at Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart Church in Ankeny, Iowa. He also served on boards with the Serra Club, Colfax Interfaith Spiritual Center and Dowling High School.

 

Richard was a loving husband, an amazing father, grandfather, and great grandfather. He coached many of his kid’s sports teams and was a very involved father in all their activities. Richard became an avid runner later in life. He could run for miles and miles which led to participating in many marathons around the world. He also enjoyed participating in the Iowa Senior Games for many years.

 

Richard is survived by four daughters Pam Pertzborn of Waukee, Sue Weed of Des Moines, Mindy Pertzborn of Urbandale and Cris (Jon) Pertzborn-Klatt of Ankeny, along with five sons Rick (Judy) of West Des Moines, Mike (Roxi) of Storm Lake, Tim (Barb) of Des Moines, Bob (Kathy) of Ankeny and Tom (Cindy) of Dallas, Texas; in addition to 25 grandchildren and 36 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his wife of 54 years, Maryann, a great grandson, son-in-law, two sisters, and parents.

The service will be live streamed at www.caldwellparissh.com

 

Ed comment:

 

In 1995 my job landed me in Des Moines, Iowa where I worked on a proposal writing team to elicit bids, from private companies, to process Medicaid claims. During my spare time contact was made with former KOM leaguers living in the Des Moines and surrounding area. Through that process a number of guys, filling that bill, were located and a number of meals were eaten in restaurants and even in their homes.

 

Richard Pertzborn was one of the fellows I broke bread bread with both in his home and restaurants. The most memorable event was visiting his home in Ankeny and sitting on the patio. From there was the greatest spectacle I had ever witnessed. There were more hummingbird feeders in his backyard than I had ever seen in my life. I marveled at the number of birds at the feeder and the effort and money it took to feed them. Being a busy executive with Northwest Mutual Life Insurance, Pertzborn gave all the credit to his wife for caring for the sugar drinkers.

 

After leaving Iowa, in late summer of 1995, there was contact with the deceased for many years through the newsletter. With the onset of his Alzheimer's that all came to an end.

Services held May 12th, 2018 11 AM our lady of the Miraculous Medal Church

 

Ed comment:

 

Several issues ago this forum mentioned the difficulty in locating Mr. Hughes. A great deal was known about him as both his mother and father were pastors in the Church of God denomination. They moved around quite a bit, as pastors are destined to do. Their service to the church saw them pastor mostly in Tennessee, Missouri and Illinois. Although a lot of effort was expended in searching for Edward Humphrey Hughes Jr. while he was alive it took an obituary to identify what became of him after baseball. If, in the afterlife, it is permissible to talk about baseball some time will be set aside to ask questions of “The Big Guy” and if Flash Reports are allowed, this story can be embellished and shared. (Be sure to send a forwarding address)

www.laureloaksfuneralhome.com/obituaries/Ernest-Jordan?ob...

 

Mr. Ernest Jordan passed away Monday night, November 30, 2020 in Allen, Texas. He was born November 4, 1930 and just celebrated his 90th birthday. His parents were Ernest and Daisy Jordan. He leaves behind his dear wife, Wanda Jordan, devoted son, Al Jordan, and a number of other family and friends.

 

There will be a graveside service at 1 p.m. at Laurel Oaks Memorial Park with Rev. Ted Kiser officiating. Mr. Jordan will be laid to rest in the Garden of Hope near his son, James Ernest Jordan, who preceded him in death last year

 

This guy pitched for Ponca City in 1950. He won the final game of the 1950 championship and catcher, Don Keeter, kept the baseball that he gave me 45 years later.

 

I have tracked Jordan for over 25 years but could never make contact. I knew he was from San Mateo, California and suspected he was living in Texas.

 

To the best of my knowledge neither Jordan or his father had a middle name.

Bob was preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Donald Ray and George Elmer (G.E.), Jr.

He is survived by his wife Sue, children Jamie (Steve) Zissis, Angela James, Brett James, and Julie (Dan) Cutforth. Grandchildren Nicholas and Alexander Zissis, Natalie, Ella, Josephine and Robenson Cutforth. Step-children Kim (Jay) LeForce, Kelley (Michael) Evans and step-grandchildren Cassidie and Maggie Cargill and Brendan Evans. A Memorial Service will be held at the First Baptist Church in Marble Falls, Texas on May 1, 2021 at 1:00 pm. A graveside service will be held at Nelson Clay Cemetery in Datto, Arkansas at a later date.

In lieu of flowers please consider St Jude›s Children›s Hospital in Memphis.

Ed comment: This is another guy I knew about but couldn't trace. He pitched in the second game of a doubleheader on July 1, 1951, the night the Carthage Cubs went off and left me at the Pittsburg ball park. James was a little guy and made his first mound appearances that night and held Carthage in check for one inning, the 9th. Lloyd “Pat” Gosney started that game for Pittsburg and hurled eight inning in hot, muggy weather. He struck out 13 Carthage batsmen and walked 12. He most likely threw more pitches that night than current major league starters are allowed to throw in two or three games.

 

James later played in the Yankee chain for the McAlester Rockets and Joplin Miners. I was aware he had moved to Texas and was living in Plano at one time. With his funeral being at Marble Falls, Plano might well have been where he died. The Corning, Ark. newspaper was not explicit on the place of death.

Carroll Ethan Bryan

 

In order to get an idea about who Mr. Bryan was the reader is going to have to click on some URL’s. Believe me, it isn’t that difficult. That is not has taxing as it has been searching for a fellow who showed up at Blackwell, Oklahoma just long enough to don a uniform and give it back in a couple of days.

 

For a number of years it was speculated the Bryan who showed up at Blackwell in 1952 was a Edwin Charles Bryan Jr. , from Belleville, Illinois with a rather extensive minor league career. However, following more detailed research it couldn’t have been him for he went into the Army in February of of that year.

 

Thanks to this site www.findagrave.com/memorial/26604258/carroll-ethan-bryan a better understanding developed regarding this short term Blackwell Bronco hurler who appeared in only one game.

 

As the link to his mortality indicates, he was born in 1927 and by the time he showed up for a shot at the KOM leaguer he was nearly 25 years of age. He had already served during WW II and with the younger men being drafted he obviously decided to try his hand in baseball. He was living in a rural area outside Wister, Oklahoma. Sixty five miles to the west is the town of McAlester which had a team called the Rockets that played in the Sooner State league. He signed with the Rockets on April 12, 1951 and he was released June 7 of that same year. However, in August he was re-singed for 1952 and after a couple of days in spring drills with the Rockets he was released and he made the 205 mile trek North to Blackwell where he fared no better. digital.la84.org/digital/collection/p17103coll3/id/11908/...

 

Bryan passed away May 11, 1994 in Poteau, Oklahoma and was buried at the Maxey Cemetery in his hometown of Wister. Not many people outside the Le Flore County town ever knew of Bryan’s love of baseball and most likely he never imagined someone would be writing about his “brush” with the bush leagues 69 years after he gave up his dream of “making it big.”

 

Had Bryan played longer there would most likely be information on him such as height and weight. He was 5’ 11” and weighed 145 pounds when entering the Army in 1945. Most likely he was in the 170 category by the time he tried his hand at professional baseball.

A long standing puzzle

 

For over a decade the name of James Williams has been bandied back and forth with baseball necrologist, Jack Morris. It could never be ascertained if James Parker Williams shown on the Sporting News Index Card was the same person who died as James Parks Williams in North Little Rock, Arkansas.

 

In recent communication Morris said his group couldn’t verify it was the same person unless they saw a reference to him in a newspaper.

 

digital.la84.org/digital/collection/p17103coll3/id/162958... James Parker Williams

 

My case is that I saw his name in the Bartlesville Examiner from some time in April of 1950. He was listed as being a native of McRae, Arkansas. That fits with the town listed in his obituary.

 

www.findagrave.com/memorial/148343743/jimmie-parks-williams James Parks Williams.

 

With that issue still dangling in mid-air a decision was made to review the obituary and make an attempt to locate a surviving member of his family. His son was chosen and the attempt to locate him wound up finding that he also passed away in recent years. Thus, it may be like speaking with Mr. Hughes, mentioned in the previous story, it will have to wait until we all pass through the pearly gates to find out who the real Jimmy Williams, was.

____________________________________________________________________________

Do the editor of this Flash Report a favor or two.

 

In late 1948 my mother received a telephone call from a former friend who was moving back to Carthage, Missouri from Madill, Oklahoma. The caller said she had a son about my age and he didn’t know anyone and wondered if my mother would either send me to her house or if her son could come and play baseball at mine. Since we had the largest yard the young man and his mother came for a visit.

 

Over the coming months and years the young man from Madill became my close friend. Between us was one bicycle. We lived a mile apart and when he had the urge to play baseball he would dial 3808 and ask me to get on “Betsy” (my bicycle) and peddle toward his house where he would meet me and he would be the designated peddler to my house for he was the bigger one us. By the way when I called my friend it was 3676. Some things never leave your memory.

 

After the baseball games concluded, back down Valley Street I went as my new friend peddled toward his home on Orchard Street. This routine lasted for a couple of years. When spring training rolled around my friend would peddle “Betsy,” with me on the back and a couple of mile journey would ensue to one of three spring training sites of the Carthage Cubs, Topeka Owls, Janesville Cubs and Sioux Falls, Canaries. The primary reasons for the spring training jaunts were to collect the broken bats and “find” a few stray baseballs for the upcoming summer’s games played in my back yard.

 

Baseball was the summer activity, football in the fall and basketball whenever. My friend was on the opposing football team on Thanksgiving Day, 1951. As the quarterback on my two-man team made a fateful decision to dive for a loose ball and received a severely broken left arm. That most likely prevented my making it to the big leagues. Football was out of the question and my friend improvised when it came to basketball. He was the most gifted among us and he’d take the rim from a can of coffee, make a net out of an orange sack and place it on a stud in a little shed on the property of the second house in lived in after coming back to Carthage. The ball we used was of the tennis genre and we came across those at the tennis court across the street from the Carthage baseball stadium. My friend had that miniature basketball game down to a science and he skunked me every time.

 

Upon my becoming the batboy for the Carthage Cubs I talked my friend into showing up early so that he could be the batboy for the visiting team. As with everything else he was a step ahead of me. Standing by the Pittsburg dugout one evening he was admiring the timber of that club when manager, Bill Enos, strode our way. My friend was impressed by the bat that had the name “Enos” on it. He thought it was a model used by Enos Slaughter of the St. Louis Cardinals. Enos asked my buddy if he liked it and upon the affirmative he was handed it. Enos said “I can’t get any hits with it so you might as well have it.”

 

My buddy was a year older than me and that brought an eventual end of our many hours playing baseball and other games. What happened very shortly thereafter is that my friend discovered girls. He had to split his time between being with the guys and his newly found friend. At one time my friends oldest brother discovered my oldest sister and had it not been for the Korean War, and his brother serving in it, my buddy and I might have been “almost kin.”

 

During his latter years in high school my buddy moved “out west” to South Central Kansas. One day in high school my English teacher said that she had received a short story that won a national award. It was written by my friend. As she read the story, which was about sports, I kept awaiting to discover the mystery person he was leading up to for the finale. For some reason I thought it might say “Johnny Hall.” Of course, he didn’t. But, at that point I knew George Robert “Corky” Simpson was destined to be an outstanding writer. The attached URL will vindicate that as a high school junior my prognostication was on target.

Cousin of another friend comes home 70 years after end of Korean War.

 

A few editions ago there was a story shared about the remains being identified as a solder from WWII. That person was from Baxter Springs, Kansas and his brothers played for the Baxter Springs Whiz Kids before and during Mickey Mantle’s time there.

Late this spring another buddy from Carthage, (Gary W. Smith) sent me a note about his cousin who was killed in Korea and his remains were recently identified and returned for burial. I imagine the deceased had attended some KOM league prior to his entering the U. S. Army.

 

During my time as Carthage batboy I recall the consternation among some of the guys who knew what was on the horizon. It was a tough period for one Carthage pitcher who had been told he would finish the 1951 before being inducted. He left the team on July 20, 1951. Just one year, one month and one day later he was killed in North Korea. I have told this story a number of times but I never learned of the death of Walter Koehler until four decades later when the research on the KOM league began. Here is the link for Lloyd Alumbaugh.

Coming to the end

 

Once in a while a question is sent from a reader of this reports and even less often there is an answer tucked away in the dark recesses of my mind. Follow along.

 

From a Tulsa reader

 

Hello, John, I've been reading "The Pine Tar Game" by Filip Bondy. ttps://www.amazon.com/Pine-Tar-Game-Entertaining-Controversy/dp/1476777187/ref=sr_1_2?crid=3RL94A5822LGO&dchild=1&keywords=the+pine+tar+game&qid=1627862188&sprefix=The+Pine+Tar+game%2Caps%2C183&sr=8-2

 

On page 167, in talking about Lee MacPhail, the author writes:

 

“In 1946, he became general manager of the Yankees' Triple-A team in Kansas City, while his father was still the Yanks' top executive in New York. He remembered being at a Blanton, Missouri, tryout camp where some teenager named Mickey Mantle showed up with his father, Mutt.”

 

I tried to find Blanton, Missouri, but with no luck. No reference could be found. Just curious where it was. You ever hear of it? Thanks.

 

Ed reply:

 

There is no such town. My guess he was talking about Branson. Make sense? Mantle never went to a tryout camp in Branson. He went there for about a week after being signed by the Yankees in 1949. He came to Independence for a couple of days and left with the team for Chanute, Kansas for a June 12th game that was rained out.

 

Then he was back to Branson in 1950 (for spring training) and came out as a member of the Joplin Miners.

 

Ed comment:

 

That brings up one more thing. A couple of weeks ago Jimmy Richardson, one of Mickey Mantle’s first cousins, on the maternal side, called regarding purchasing a few more of the “Mickey Mantle Before the Glory” books. At that time he mentioned that his younger brother, Tom, had passed away in recent months. Tom is the guy mentioned in the Mantle book who attempted to ride the family cow out of the barn and it turned out to be quite an experience. For those who have that book, look up the story. For those who don’t there a “few” unread copies in my secret stash that are either going bald or turning gray.

My relationship with books was love at first sight. I was seven when I first entered my neighbourhood's public library, which was barely 60 sq meters. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be who I am today without that humble library. Sadly, that same library was closed down this last week, victim to this merciless "crisis".

 

La meva relació amb els llibres va ser amor a primera vista. Tenia 7 anys quan vaig entrar per primera vegada a la biblioteca del meu barri, la qual pràcticament no arribava als 60 metres quadrats. Estic convençuda que sense l'existència d'aquesta biblioteca avui no seria la mateixa persona. Tristament, aquesta setmana l'han tancada, una altra víctima d'aquesta "crisi" despiadada.

 

Mi relación con los libros fue un amor a primera vista. Tenía 7 años cuando entré por primera vez a la biblioteca de mi barrio, la cual apenas ocupaba 60 metros cuadrados. Estoy convenida de que sin esa biblioteca hoy no sería la misma persona. Tristemente, esta semana la cerraron, otra víctima de esta "crisis" despiadada.

Lo que más llama la atención, es que sean propios compañeros de profesión (los fotógrafos de bodas) los primeros que infringen estas normas y roben imágenes de otros para anunciar sus servicios de fotografía, en este caso particularmente y probado de Edward Olive, ¿no tienen un portafolio propio para su uso del cual tienen completamente los derechos de copyright? A esto yo le llamaría estafa, te vendes como fotógrafo enseñando el trabajo de otro y no el tuyo propio.

Las dos torres que conforman la llamada Puerta de Europa, también conocidas como Torres KIO (debido a que fueron promovidas por la empresa kuwaití KIO, Kuwait Investments Office) son dos torres inclinadas la una hacia la otra, 15° respecto a la vertical, con una altura de 114 m y 26 plantas. La Puerta de Europa son las segundas torres gemelas más altas de España, tras las Torres de Santa Cruz en Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Están situadas en la Plaza de Castilla de Madrid (España), próximas al centro financiero de AZCA.

 

Su construcción dio lugar al caso de estafa de Urbanor que implicó a los Albertos y al Banco Central de España cuando los querellantes (el arquitecto Pedro Sentieri y el constructor Julio San Martín) denunciaron a sus ex socios Alberto Alcocer y Alberto Cortina alegando que obtuvieron más dinero en la operación a pesar de que éstos eran los socios mayoritarios, y que cobraron el pago de Kio en acciones del Banco Central, debido a que la operación había sido instrumentada para lograr el control de dicha entidad.

 

La torre de la izquierda en dirección salida de Madrid se conoce como Puerta de Europa I, en tanto que la otra se conoce como Puerta de Europa II. Para evitar su confusión la primera dispone de un helipuerto pintado en color azul y la segunda en rojo. La torre de la izquierda tiene el logotipo de Caja Madrid, mientras que la torre de la derecha tiene el logotipo de Realia, una empresa inmobiliaria. Este logo fue añadido posteriormente. Su estructura es masiva

 

es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puerta_de_Europa_de_Madrid

 

The Puerta de Europa towers (Gate of Europe or just Torres KIO) are twin office buildings in Madrid. The towers have a height of 114 m (374 ft) and have 26 floors. They were constructed from 1989 to 1996. The Puerta de Europa is the second tallest twin towers in Spain after the Torres de Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

 

They were designed by the American architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee, built by Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas[1] and commissioned by the Kuwait Investment Office (hence their initial name "Torres KIO" or "KIO Towers"). Leslie E. Robertson Associates, RLLP New York (LERA) provided structural engineering services. Each building is 115 m tall with an inclination of 15°, making them the first inclined skyscrapers in the world. They are located near the Chamartín railway station, on the sides of the Plaza Castilla bus station, north from the Paseo de la Castellana and near the Cuatro Torres Business Area.

 

After the receivership of Grupo Torras, KIO had to sell the buildings, which are now owned by Bankia and Realia.

 

The west tower has a rooftop helicopter pad outlined in blue; the east tower has a red one.

 

They played a key role in the 1995 movie The Day of the Beast, whose climax took place on one of the then nearly-completed towers. The towers were also shot in the song sequence "oru koodai sunlight" in the popular Tamil film Sivaji.

Ahora que aún estoy a tiempo debo contarte algo. No pares, sigue leyéndome anda (y no te asustes, no mucho al menos).

 

Mira, yo un día decidí muy dentro respetar tanto sus espacios que no me quedó más remedio que dividir el mundo en cachos. Te explico. No te voy a engañar, aunque sé que probablemente eso te alejará a los pocos de mí, pero no te voy a engañar. Hubo alguien que se quedó directamente con la mitad, bueno, esta expresión no es muy correcta puesto que no “se la quedó”, se la cedí, la mitad exacta. La mitad restante la tuve que partir en más pedazos, de ella hice tres partes, no iguales, pero tampoco excesivamente desiguales. ¿Sabes lo más curioso de toda esta repartición? que cuando divides el globo terráqueo en trocitos semeja que cualquier fracción es un mundo, yo bien sé que no, pero parece que sí, no es ninguna estafa, te lo aseguro, pero mientras a ti sólo te quedan restos para repartir quien lo recibe se impresiona por su peso y tamaño.. imagina, estamos hablando de la dimensión de un cuarto de planeta.. eso según con qué lo compares es al menos abrumador.

Hoy ya no vivo allí, en aquel planeta fragmentado, que va.. ya no había espacio para mí.. me cambié de hogar, incluso de galaxia. Así que ahora tengo la extraña duda de si me queda todo por dar o directamente ya no queda nada. Lo desconozco, lo siento.

Y tú te dirás.. ¿por qué porras me cuenta todo esto a mí? Pues no sé la razón exacta. Total, mirarás hacia los lados buscando al destinatario y jamás te darás por aludida, no tú, tú nunca.

El monument megalític conegut com la Table des Marchand, situat a Locmariaquer (Lokmaria-Kaer en bretó), és un dolmen restaurat recentment. És interessant, a més, per estar just al costat del menhir més gran del món, malauradament tombat i trencat a trossos. Sembla que ja fou destruït fa milers d'anys, potser per un terratrèmol o més segurament, pels propis habitants de la zona.

 

La Table des Marchands està molt restaurat, ja que fins al segle passat estava a cel obert i, només fa unes decades, es recobrí de pedres altra vegada, donant-li l'aspecte que devia tenir un cop acabat. Així i tot, l'interior és molt interessant, amb misteriosos gravats a les parets i el sostre.

 

Sempre trobes exemples d'incultura, això sí: al llibre de visites de l'entrada del conjunt vàrem trobar una anotació en castellà i del dia anterior queixant-se d'haver-hi perdut el temps per "cuatro peñascos, vaya estafa". Sense comentaris...

 

Ah, fixeu-vos que el nom del monument és Marchand, no marchands, perquè no fa referència a cap mercader, sinó a la família que n'era propietaria fa uns anys.

 

Aquí teniu informació en francès:

=====================================================================

 

The Table des Marchands is a rebuilt dolmen in Locmariaquer (Lokmaria-kaer), Brittany. It's about 4000 years old, but a century ago the stony cairn that protected it's chamber was lost. Twenty years ago it was rebuilt, and now looks as if just finished. Inside you could see beautiful stone carvings in the walls and roof.

En El País de Madrid se publicó hoy día una entrevista con el distinguido escritor venezolano Leonardo Padrón. Según El País, él es "el escritor más reconocido por el gran público en Venezuela. Poeta, escritor de telenovelas y películas, presentador de espectáculos teatrales, cronista y conductor de un exitoso ciclo de entrevistas radiales . . . "

 

Es sumamente importante nosotros los verdaderos patriotas leamos lo que dijo Padrón en su entrevista:

 

P. Hace poco citaba en un artículo una frase de Eduardo Galeano, figura tutelar del chavismo. “Qué sería del poder sin el miedo”. ¿Cuánto ha contribuido la difusión del miedo para que el Gobierno se mantenga en el poder?

 

Sabemos que el régimen desplegará todo su arsenal de estrategias ilícitas para torcer la voluntad del electorado

 

R. El miedo ha sido una de las herramientas políticas más eficaces de la revolución bolivariana. En el manual de procedimientos de los sistemas totalitarios el miedo es un clásico. Y aquí, en Venezuela, lo han conjugado en todas sus variantes. Los medios de comunicación que no logran comprar los hostigan a veces hasta la ruina. Los ciudadanos que ejercen el disenso son amenazados. Los tuiteros excesivamente irreverentes son encarcelados. Los líderes políticos son inhabilitados, arrinconados hacia la cárcel o el exilio. Los seguidores del chavismo, ante cualquier posibilidad de quitarse la camisa roja de su ideología, son alertados con ser execrados de los beneficios sociales que reciben. Los colectivos armados recorren las ciudades rugiendo violencia. El presidente Maduro se ha hecho experto ladrando amenazas en cada cadena nacional de una manera inaceptable. Es uno de los pocos argumentos que les queda. Y se les está devolviendo como un bumerán aliñado de justicia poética. Ahora el miedo habita en ellos.

 

P. ¿La difusión del miedo como política de Estado, la inseguridad personal y la escasez han cambiado el modo de ser de los venezolanos? ¿Es reversible ese cambio en el modo de relacionarse entre compatriotas?

 

R. Sin duda. El venezolano es ahora un ciudadano minado por la incertidumbre y la desazón. Hasta los actos más domésticos están signados por esos rasgos. Ahora somos más inseguros, más frágiles, más inconsistentes ante la noción del futuro como posibilidad. Revertir esa sensación es, no sólo posible, sino urgente. No hay país que avance con un clima tan abrumador de depresión. Pero es cuestión de reordenar las reglas de juego. Lo que le toca a la clase dirigente política y a los propios ciudadanos es un exigente ejercicio de lucidez. Para reconstruir a este país nos necesitamos todos, sin excepción.

SIn embargo, en ciertos sectores de la izquierda estadounidense, todavía hay gente que defiende el oficialismo en Venezuela sin pensar en el enorme daño que este ha hecho en el país.

Ei, politics catalans, i molt especialment els que s'han rendit més servilment: ves a saber si hi ha taula o no, però el que segur que no hi haurà, es dialeg amb l'estat espanyol. Ja sabem que no sou tant idiotes com per no entendre-ho, però deixeu de prentendre enganyar-nos a nosaltres! Vergonya, cavallers, vergonya!

 

Ferrotip en format 4x5 polzades, realitzat amb una Graflex Pacemaker Speed Graphic fabricada cap al 1949; objectiu Kodak Anastigmat f4.5; col·lodió reutilitzat; revelador casolà i fixador tiosulfat de sodi (hypo).

 

Les plaques de col·lodió es realitzen al moment, cobrint una placa de vidre o planxa metal·lica negra amb col·lodió i sals de cadmi i/o potassi, sensibilitzat amb nitrat de plata. Aleshores s'ha de fer la fotografia i revelar-la en uns 5 minuts, abans no s'assequi la emulsió. És un dels processos fotogràfics més antics del món, inventat el 1851, i que dominà fins el 1880. Però ara ha resorgit, ja que les imatges, molt treballades, que dona són úniques, màgiques i i irrepetibles.

==========================================

 

Spanish government pretends to be negociating with the Catalan government about the issue of the political status of Catalonia, and it's independence. But it's a trick, and a trap. Spain would never negociate, nor even give just conditions to Catalonia. So there's no table, nor negotiation.

 

Tintype in 4x5 format, made with a Graflex Pacemaker Speed Graphic (from 1949); Kodak Anastigmat f4.5 lens; reused collodion; home made developer; hypo fixer.

 

The collodion plates are made covering a glass plate or black metal plate with collodion and salts of cadmium and / or potassium, sensitized with silver nitrate. Then you have to take the photo and reveal it in about 5 minutes, before the emulsion dries. It is one of the oldest photographic processes in the World, invented in 1851, and which dominated photography until 1880. But now it has resurfaced, as the images, very elaborate to create, that it gives are unique, razor sharp, magical and unrepeatable.

Así, o mas evidente la estafa?

Tras 2 intentos fallidos en Valencia buscando una 335 de COMSA, viendo la mala racha que llevaba, dejé de buscarla. Ayer estube en Oporto con la ultima esperanza de verla, me encontre dos aficionados portugueses a los cuales agradezco su compañia y estubimos hablando un rato. Les pregunté por el tren de Madera Tuy - Ródão. Me dijierón que este siempre iba servido con una maquina de Takargo, pero que hacia como un año que no veían la de Comsa con este servicio. Con la intención de ver este servicio con alguna 6000 de Takargo me quedé, cuando justamente le estaba haciendo fotos a un interciudades un aficionado me empieza a gritar,por el fondo veo algo azul.acercandose. Cuando estaba un poco mas cerca vi que era una 335 de Comsa, Me costaba creerlo... La estaban metiendo en la misma vía que el interciudades al que le estaba haciendo fotos. Con la emoción del momento empezé a correr hacía el otro extremo del anden para hacerle alguna que otra foto. Finalmente la tubieron parada unos 5min detrás del interciudades y después 15min mas a la señal de salida de la estación. Aproveche como nunca la ocasión para retratarla, ya que vino limpia, por la vía perfecta y con la luz perfecta y encima me la paraban. ¿Que mas podía pedir? En fin, aquí os dejo una de las fotos de mi colección, que tiene mas valor para mí.

 

Després de 2 Intents fallits a València, buscant una 335 de COMSA . Veient la mala ratxa Que portava , Vaig deixar de buscar-la. Ahir vaig estar a Porto amb L' Última Esperança de Veure-la , em vaig trobar dos aficionats portuguesos als quals agraeixo la seva companyia. I vam estar parlant una estona. Els vaig preguntar per El fuster Tuy - Ródão . Em van dir que aquest servei sempre el servien amb una 6000 de Takargo. I que feia un any que no el veien amb una 335 de Comsa. estafa this Servei. Amb la Intenció de veure aquest servei amb alguna 6000 de Takargo, em vaig quedar, Quan justament li estàva fent fotos a interciutats un aficionat em va començar a cridar, pel Fons veig algo de color blau apropant-se.Quan va estar algo més a prop vaig veure que era una 335 de Comsa. Em costava creure-ho ... La Estaven posant a la Mateixa via que el interciutats al que li estava fent fotos. Amb l'emoció del moment vaig començar a córrer cap a l' altre extrem de l'andana per fer alguna altre foto. Finalment la van tenir parada uns 5min darrere del interciutats i després 15min més a la senyal de sortida de l'estació . Vaig aprofitar com mai l' Ocasió per fer-li fotos, ja que anava neta, la van posar a la via perfecta i la llum era de la millor del dia,i a sobre me la paraven . Que mes podia demanar? En fi, aquí us deixo una de les fotos del meva col·lecció, que té més valor per a mi.

El monument megalític conegut com la Table des Marchand, situat a Locmariaquer (Lokmaria-Kaer en bretó), és un dolmen restaurat recentment. És interessant, a més, per estar just al costat del menhir més gran del món, malauradament tombat i trencat a trossos. Sembla que ja fou destruït fa milers d'anys, potser per un terratrèmol o més segurament, pels propis habitants de la zona.

 

La Table des Marchands està molt restaurat, ja que fins al segle passat estava a cel obert i, només fa unes dècades, es recobrí de pedres altra vegada, donant-li l'aspecte que devia tenir un cop acabat. Així i tot, l'interior és molt interessant, amb misteriosos gravats a les parets i el sostre.

 

Com podeu veure en aquesta imatge de l'interior, al sostre hi destaca un gravat d'una destral.

 

Sempre trobes exemples d'incultura, això sí: al llibre de visites de l'entrada del conjunt vàrem trobar una anotació en castellà i del dia anterior queixant-se d'haver-hi perdut el temps per "cuatro peñascos, vaya estafa". Sense comentaris...

 

Ah, fixeu-vos que el nom del monument és Marchand, no marchands, perquè no fa referència a cap mercader, sinó a la família que n'era propietaria fa uns anys.

 

Aquí teniu informació en francès:

fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_des_Marchand

 

==============================================================

 

The Table des Marchands is a rebuilt dolmen in Locmariaquer (Lokmaria-kaer), Brittany. It's about 4000 years old, but a century ago the stony cairn that protected it's chamber was lost. Twenty years ago it was rebuilt, and now looks as if just finished. Inside you could see beautiful stone carvings in the walls and roof.

"Que el mundo fue y será una porquería, ya lo sé,

en el quinientos seis y en el dos mil también;

que siempre ha habido chorros,

maquiávelos y estafáos,

contentos y amargaos, valores y dublé.

Pero que el siglo veinte es un despliegue

de maldá...insolente ya no hay quien lo niegue,

vivimos revolcaos en un merengue

y en el mismo lodo todos manoseaos...

 

Igual que en la vidriera irrespetuosa

de los cambalaches se ha mezclao la vida....

 

Siglo veinte, cambalache, problemático y febril,

el que no llora no mama y el que no roba es un gil...."

 

Puede ser horrible esta letra de Gardel....pero el tango es bueno y francamente me mata de la risa su decoro, su asombro y su preplejidad.

 

(Por cierto, jeje, esto que se muestra es el "modesto" techo del Hotel México que esta en el DF)

Hace mas de 4 años estoy en flickr, jamás tuve un problema o aviso.

 

Pero ante las novedades.., protesté por el abuso.

Primero me amenazaron, accedí a modificar algo que pidieron. Y quedó todo tranquilo pero..

  

sabía que algún día llegaría este momento, yo no tolero la intolerancia o la prepotencia, menos que menos la censura y el abuso.

 

Ustedes usuarios saben que hay miles de bancos de imágenes que tienen las puertas abiertas para bajar sus imágenes?

 

Saben que el "copyright" no existe para Flickr, que es solo una palabra? Solo es un "aviso" para el que pueda robar tus fotos, luego lo dejan al libre alvedrío... Pero con las nuevas modificaciones todos acceden a tus fotos en cualquier tamaño? Ya no hay lupa que valga, todos pueden acceder al archivo directamente.

 

Lo que se reclamó es que preserven nuestras fotos, nada mas. No es una campaña en contra de Flickr, sino a favor de nuestros derechos de propiedad intelectual. Qué mejor que seguir aquí, donde hace tanto tiempo estamos? pero con las medidas de seguridad correspondientes.

  

Ahora DESDE FLICKRCENTRAL, han censurado comentarios dentro de un hilo con respecto a los "cambios en flickr".

 

www.flickr.com/groups/newphotopagepreview/discuss/7215762...

 

Me han censurado (borrado) unos cuantos comentarios de ese hilo, al igual que a otros usuarios que también han amenazado como a mí.

 

También recibo mails amenazando con el cierre de la cuenta.

 

qué pasa Flickr?? estas nerviosshooo?

  

Argumentan romper con las reglas de Flickr, pero en ningun momento insulté o agredí, sólo cuestioné y ofrecí ideas, propuestas o salidas.

Nuestros trabajos están cada día mas expuestos al robo. Con la nueva configuración de Flickr ahora es mucho mas fácil.

Tienen nuevos convenios para poder negociar con tus fotos. O dejarlas al alcance de cualquier banco de imágenes.

 

Así que si por casualidad vieras próximamente que mi stream ya no existe, y mi nick sale con una carita gris despersonalizada ya sabrás el porqué.

 

Estamos en el Siglo XXI, donde la libertad de expresión debería ser moneda corriente.

 

Se paga un servicio (usuarios PRO) para que encima te roben las fotos, no te garanticen la seguridad de las mismas y ante la insistencia por el cambio te censuren, amenacen y bloqueen cuentas.

  

Cada uno sabrá qué hacer.

 

Mi primer paso fue reclamar

El segundo decidir no renovar la cuenta pro en cuanto caduque.

El tercero es este (forzado).

El cuarto, si no cambian las cosas, será irme de flickr. Ojalá no sea necesario.

 

El cambio lo hacemos todos, de vos depende.

Quan vaig fer aquesta foto no tenia ni idea de què volia que em sortís, només sabia que volia que els ulls de la meva filla expresessin alguna emoció. De les que vaig fer, la idea de triar aquesta va sorgir espontàniament i inmediatament el títol sortia sol, no perqué haguéssim de suplicar res, però els seus ulls i la meva càmera , per un moment, varen clamar al cel alguna cosa que en aquell moment encara no sabiem, però que alguna telepatia ens va transmetre. La súplica, com gairabé sempre, no va ser escoltada, segurament perquè no hi ha ningú ni res per escoltar-la. El do de la fe no m'ha estat concedit. Espero estar equivocada i quan passem a l'altre dimensió, allà , hi hagi algú que ens pugui donar alguna explicació de tot plegat i d'aquesta sensació d'estafa general . Ara només "suplico" que a la familia afectada els hagi estat concedit el do de la fe.

 

Moltes gràcies pels vostres amables comentaris:-))

Carissima és la nova companyia formada pels alumnes de 4t curs de Graduat en Art Dramàtic del Centre de formació teatral El Galliner.

   

Sinopsi: Castro és un productor i representant d’artistes en hores baixes i arruïnat. Entre altres activitats per sobreviure, a la seva agència K-STAR munta cursos de teatre amb l’ajut d’una amiga i ex amant, la diva tràgica Núria Expert. Classes per sobreviure? Sí: perquè les classes tenen un objectiu inconfessable. I és que l’associació amb l’Expert sembla que va més enllà de la col·laboració professional. Més enllà de la llei i tot: el muntatge amb els alumnes d’una comèdia d’intriga criminal els serveix de tapadora per organitzar una estafa. Els alumnes no en saben res, al principi. Però –alguns més de pressa altres més lentament—van entenent el doble joc i com el teatre els entra de pet en la vida.

  

La cosa es complica perquè les aparences enganyen constantment, la realitat i la ficció, la veritat i la mentida, els personatges i els actors, el crim i la seva representació van ficant l’acció en un laberint on teatre i vida es confonen i els papers es capgiren.
