    Bill Stroud pool stories................

    Now I remember a little more about meeting Bill at that tournament in Burbank. When I bought my Joss West used, it was in terrible condition and it came with one original shaft and one shaft made by another cue maker and the rings didn't match. I had Ernie G. refinish it and rewrap the cue...

    Bill Stroud pool stories................

    I met Bill S. one time at a pool tournament in Burbank. He was hawking his wares. I introduced myself to him and told him I had one of his cues. He was very rude and asked how I knew it was one of his cues. I said it said, JW 1988 and that Ernie G. had refinished, and rewrapped the cue and...

    Fargo Billiards is closing?

    One of the big problems is, cities like LA hate to give out pool room permits. Hollywood Billiards had all the permits, hard liquor, pool, 24 hour operation and entertainment. No pool room in the city had all those permits. To your point Covid has put a big hole in commercial retail and there...

    Fargo Billiards is closing?

    Interesting, out here in Cali we've been shut down for the most part. Restaurants have to seat folks outside on patios.

    Fargo Billiards is closing?

    Sounds like another Covid casualty. Covid is killing pool rooms. It's not a high margin business to start with.

    Skinny Bob’s temporarily closing after an employee tests positive today

    Jay you are really stepping in it. Joseph Pulitzer was one of the kings of " yellow " journalism. The idea that the media is sacrosanct is stupid. If you can't see that American media is compromised there is nothing that one can do for you. One example is 90% of the media is not even doing...

    Skinny Bob’s temporarily closing after an employee tests positive today

    You live in some alternate universe. I would bet you've never even read a bio on say William Randolf Hearst. There was a ton of " yellow " journalism in the past and so many papers were totally partisan. The LA Times under the Chandlers was totally Republican and that is the way it was...

    Skinny Bob’s temporarily closing after an employee tests positive today

    I think your position does not reflect reality. Going back in time folks bought newspapers to influence policy in their direction. What is different today is that the media companies are transnational giants that worship at the alter of stock valuation. You've got a sort of white socks and...

    Skinny Bob’s temporarily closing after an employee tests positive today

    Fox is an outlier for the most part. Most of the Media Entertainment Industrial Complex have massive investments in China and hate Trump. I would say that 95% of media slants left. Think of the LA Times and the NYTs. The lords of Silicon Valley have placed large bets in China and hate Trump...

    Skinny Bob’s temporarily closing after an employee tests positive today

    Jay if that is true why is the race so tight tonight? According to the pollsters and the media it was gonna be totally different. The media has zero credibility based on their own actions.
