Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

06/02/2005: Heavenly Wheels?

If you were hankering to get in a bid on the late Pope John Paul IIís wheels Ė well, youíre just gonna have to hang on to your check book for a while longerÖ

ĎPope carí headed back to Sugar Grove: Judge halts auction until father, son resolve ownership differences. by Leslie Hague (Daily Herald Staff Writer):

"An auction to sell the only car known to be owned and driven by the late Pope John Paul II is off.


On Wednesday, lawyers representing auction house Kruse International, based in Auburn, Ind., and those of Jerome Rich of Sugar Grove agreed that Kruse will return the car to Rich.

Richís son, Jim, had kept the 1975 Ford Escort inside his shuttered Sugar Grove restaurant, Chicago West, and had planned to auction it this weekend in Las Vegas to pay off his debts.

However, both Riches claim ownership of the car. Kane County Judge F. Keith Brown issued an temporary restraining order last week that the car not be moved or sold until the ownership issue was ironed out, but Dean Kruse, owner of Kruse International, said at that time he didnít need to follow an out-of-state order.

By that time, the car had been moved to Indiana...."

And so, the legal battle continues.

Hey, Iíve often said itís quite interesting living here in DHC, and occassionally something even happens around here. So, I'll let you know when this dispute is settled and YOU can get your chance to own the Pope-mobile. LOL
