Editor of the Times,
Sam was a great writer. He grew up along river and that's what he mostly wrote about. He was almost famous and had a little extra money. People would approach him for help on an idea they had. Sam would write 'em a check. This went on for many years with no luck. One day, he said no more.
The next person to run an idea by him, he told him no. The idea was for a box you could talk into and also hear on. So he turned down Alexander Graham Bell; Samuel Clemens, alias Mark Twain, had to buy his own telephone.
In 1987 a trusting person in El Dorado paid a Wichita patent attorney $235 to ask him about an idea for a "wrist watch" life preserver. He was getting tired of hearing about young people drowning; your body weight in water is one-sixth. The attorney told him he wouldn't bother with. One and 1/2 years later it came out in two national magazines under products to watch, invented in W. Germany and m.f.g. in Denver, Colorado!
Look around . . get rid of your phone and your computer games! Think. Fill a need for the world. Numbers! Games! Think. Fill a need for the world. Numbers! Would you like a penny profit from six billion items?
Be careful around some of Kansas' attorneys, at least you only need an undertaker once.

Gary Job,
El Dorado
