Rahm Emanuel-rendered practically mute!

Shabbat Shmooze ~ Barack Obama: America's First Jewish President! ;)

The below article is by Martin Lewis ~ a man who, as a teenage fan in 1967, was hired to compile the discography for the only Brian Epstein-approved Beatles biography, written by Hunter Davies ~

~ then, in 1998, Martin championed the reissue of A Cellarful Of Noise, adding incredible material from both himself and his then-boss, Derek Taylor ~

~ and followed that in 1999 (with the immeasurable assistance of David Haber of by creating the internet's first and only OFFICIAL Brian Epstein website ~

~ finally, Martin is the man who spearheads the campaign to have our Brian inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

There is much, much more, such as his work with Monty Python, etc., but you can read all that on All in all, not too shabby a legacy for one man, I'd say.

Alas, advice that was not heeded by his goyish puppet-masters.
