two south african immigrants made news today

the first was Elon Musk who sent a rocket ship containing a Tesla car into space this morning

and then had his rocket boosters fly back to earth safely so he could use them again

and again and again.

moral of the story: surround yourself with people who believe that anything is possible

and you will create miracles.

the second was the richest man in LA, Billionaire Patrick Soon-Shiong,

who might take $500 million of his $7 billion fortune to buy the best paper west of Manhattan

your Los Angeles times.

moral of that story: sometimes good things happen to good cities.

always do the right thing, Mookie.
