Jul 7th 2010 11:41AM Lots of nice comments here. One thing I'd like to point out here is that this is not a "johnny come lately" business. I 've been friends with Richard and his family since he came to Las Vegas almost 30 years ago after retiring from the Navy. Richard opened a tiny "buy store" in a ragged strip mall on Las Vegas Blvd. He had $500 in his pocket after rent and bought gold and silver, selling it to the refiner every day to keep some money rolling in. He worked very hard and was a downright honest scrap buyer. If he thought that something he bought was "hot", he called the police immediately. I personally arrested some problem burglars on Richard's information. He told me he's amazed that Pawn Stars has taken off like it has. "ROCK ON OLD MAN".
Jun 15th 2010 3:40PM I was fortunate enough to visit the first RR museum in Apple Valley. It was in a small building that had been either a bowling alley or supermarket. I stopped in often when I travelled the area, and both Roy and Dale were still living. Roy came to the museum occasionally and I had the pleasure of meeting him. He was a class act. During that era, he was on a bowling team in Victorville and was "just another guy". Later, when the museum moved over to the freeway, and I was living in Las Vegas, I never failed to stop in. Greatly improved, collection-wise, but never saw Roy again. The passing of an era. At least I still get to vist the Tom Mix museum in my hometown of Dewey, Oklahoma.

Nov 19th 2008 5:31PM Here's a suggestion since there are so many of you who complain about WalMart employees wages and benefits. Let's close all the WalMarts and throw the employees out on the street. Then we'll send them to your house to hear how badly they were treated at WalMart.......Oh, by the way, get some mean junkyard dogs, you're gonna need them.
Feb 2nd 2008 3:50AM Guy goes to Southwest check-in with two bags and a reservation for Los Angeles. Tells the agent "I want one bag sent to Seattle and one bag to Phoenix". Agent sez "We can't do that sir". Guy sez "WHY NOT, YOU DID ON MY LAST TRIP".
