THE TALE OF THE OLD PROSPECTOR… Dreams of Success Shattered


Al Jolson – Brother can you spare a Dime-I

Many Moons ago in the old West, many a young man went west to mine the California Hills got there as young men , worked a lifetime growing old hoping for the big strike ‘the Mother Load” , only to see gold at the end of the tunnel for a big mining corporation to come in at the very end and jump his claim and have all that now old Prospector worked for…
.When I was growing up there was a Gas station owner “Gus” who worked hard and never worked other than in the costumers interest, He was a Rare Honest Mechanic His shop was located on Maine Street Flushing not far from Booth Memorial Hospital., Gust heard of a new development being built “CARLISLE TOWERS” He worked and suffered in the muck & meyer of the construction around the area of his station with blocked streets , barly eiking out a living only for the oil company to pull his lease when the construction was over and never saw the pot of gold at the end of the tunnel someone who never suffered and got his hand s dirty , walked into a gold mine.
the creator of Superman Comic book never reaped the fortune that Hollywood made from his creation . Well I helped make competitive eating the sport it is today. Iam that old prospector . I am that gas station mechanic . am the orignator of superman . Its nice to have new people follow in your footsteps but I never worked my tail off so the eaters of today can reap the pot of gold in the sport that I helped define and shape and glory of the seed that I Sowed & thats the way I feel..Don Lerman
