In the claim I filed in the Superior Court of Monterey I inform the court of the autobiography Vicki Presco showed me written by our famous sister, Christine Rosamond. It was about 270 pages, much of it handwritten. Rosamond’s words never saw the light of day. Documents written in the hand of famous artists, are valuable. I told the court this autobiography belonged to the two Heirs, my nieces Drew Benton and Shannon Sidel, thus, the proceeds of this work should go to the Heirs – including any movie made from this work!
In the Story Teller series, it is obvious Christine had much to say – even after death! I looked at the Benton Divorce records. It was ugly, and finalized a month before Rosamond died. Was Christine going to speak of her divorce from the famous artist, Garth Benton? I did not read all of Rosamond’s autobiography, just the first chapter that Vicki showed me that began;
“Everyone thought my brother was going to be a world famous artist one day, but, it was not to be.”
Mark Presco got to read Snyder’s lies before they were published. Mark did not want the world to read about the the other artist in the family, because I came to Shannon’s defence when my family went after her.
Garth Benton was not getting along with my niece Shannon, after he had her arrested and evicted from her mother’s house – in handcuffs! Shannon was 28, and Drew 9 when their mother died. This meant the adult Heir would have more control of the creative legacy, and would want to profit from the movie, the jewel in the crown. My brother and Stacey Pierrot did not want Shannon to prosper and have power, because she would evict the parasites from the legacy he mother left her: thus, they did not use her mother’s words that belonged to the two Heirs. Instead, they invented words, put words in Rosamond’s mouth. They told lies about my family, and made me out to be the villain, the one who oppressed Christine since childhood. Were are Rosamond’swords? What have the oppressors of the truth done with them?
If you study the wording Sydney Morris uses, he blesses the movie deal – only so it will give new life to Rosamond’s waning fame – and thus generate sales of Rosamond’s images, of which a percentage goes to the two Heirs.
When Pierrot put her webpage of Rosamond on the internet, she introduced the author Sandra Faulkner who she claimed had personal interviews with Christine before she drowned. Sandra was hired by Christine to help her put her autobiography together. I informed the court that those interviews are inntilectual porperty, and thus owned by the Heirs. Sandra was kicked off the project. Vicki told me she had ascounded with the $5,000 dollar advance. However, I believe she was dismissed because an attorney informed Pierrot and Mark Presco indeed any movie made from Faulkner’s words, wwould belng to the Heirs.
Pierrot made a call for fans of Rosamond contribute their antidotes to Faulkner’s biography. Patrice Hanson heard this curtain call, and responded. Patrice was a stage mother who put her daughter on stage since she was a child. I saw twenty five videos of Heather Hanson’s performances. They sent e-mails to Pierotwho forwarded them to the ghost writer, Tom Snyder. Pierrot invited Patrice and Heather to the gallery opening. My brother was there. He met my daughter before I did. In conversing with them, Pierrot and my family discovered they had not yet contacted me, and, had no real interest in doing so. They had come for the Fame, the Money, and the chance for my daughter to become a star playing you know who.
“Doesn’t my daughter look like Rosamond?”
My family was in shock. They had been upstaged by a very dangerous person who had dealt me, the surviving family artist, back into the game!
During a family truce, Mark blessed my novel, and during a telephone conversation suggested I INSERT partsofhis misogynist essay. I was shocked. I then began to suspect he was the Svengali, the other Phantom of the Opera lurking behind the scene. Now that my culture war with my brother has hit the natiional political stage, it is time to expose my brother, drag him on the the stage. Let us prey, that all Dark Puppet Masters, will soon have their day! True Art is not rendered in the dark.
Last May, Vicki called me and said we were the “only ones left.” She told me she had a terrible fight with Mark abd he disapeared himself, we never to see or hear of him again. Two days ago I read another misogynist post made by the Mark of Cain. This morning I read that Maddona was booed while on stage, and folks walked out of her concert when she said she was going to vote for Obama. As goes our family, so goes the nation?
Some expertsbelieve we are on the verge of another Civil War. My brother and I are polar opposites. We should be darted, tagged, then studied in a lab – put under a microscope. Mark is a tax evader – for starters!
Garth and Christine were in deep gtrouble with the IRS. Was Rosamond poised to divorce herself from the financial wrong-doing in her autobiography – that would also cast blame on her business people – including Pierrot – whose book ‘When You Close Your Eyes’ goes to great length to cast blame on Rosamond for all that went financially wrong – and exhonorate the business people! This is why this Book of Lies did not sell. In 1990 Rosemary told me Mark was encouraging her daughter to not pay her taxes – and be more like him – rather then follow in my footsteps for the rest of her life.
Christine gave me sole credit for her success, and was seeking to make ammends now that she was sober. Mark must have been furious, it his belief that if everyone followed his commans, we would all be wealthy. Mark has no gifts, and hates Art. My brother made instruments of war for Hugh’s Aircraft. America has lost every major war since we won World War Two, yet, Romeny wants to give war-makers a trillion more dollars then waht they asked for after defunding the Arts.

Hi, John –
Visited your website the other day and noticed you have the poem,
“Your Name” posted. I think it’s beautiful.
Lillian had given me a copy some time ago, and I am wondering if you know
where it was published.
Have you met Heather yet?

So you got to please yourself.

“Petitioner hired Stacey Pierrot, who had been assistant manager of the gallery during Decedent’s lifetime, to run the gallery and prepare and execute a marketing plan. The gallery was run by the estate until March 1996 when the gallery was sold to Ms. Pierrot through a contract approved by this Court. During the time that the estate operated the gallery, aggressive marketing efforts were made in an attempt to stir interest in Decedent’s work and increase the potential market for her work. In spite of these efforts, interest in Decedent’s work continued to wane.”
On page six, Mr. Morris explains why there was a delay in the closing of the estate;
“By September 2000, however, plans were underway for a biography of Decedent, which Petitioner hoped might create interest in her work. The book was published in 2002. Although the book did not spur the hoped-for interest in Decedent’s life and work, efforts continued to market the concept of a screenplay based upon Decedent’s life. Petitioner hoping that this might be brought to fruition, elected to keep the estate open. However, it is the Petitioner’s belief the likelihood of an increased interest in Decedents work is negligible, and the time has come to close the estate.”

I think that the main consideration for this data is not being factored in, and that is whether or not women want to be in the workplace or otherwise outside of the home. It wasn’t until the 20th century when all those nice cushy air-conditioned office jobs became available that the workplace became attractive to western women and then they demanded immediate gratification, especially in the top office jobs. Before that they content to stay home with the kids and let the men work themselves into an early grave.
Vice President Joe Biden joined House Democrats in lashing tea party Republicans Monday, accusing them of having “acted like terrorists” in the fight over raising the nation’s debt limit, according to several sources in the room.
Biden was agreeing with a line of argument made by Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.) at a two-hour, closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting.

“We have negotiated with terrorists,” an angry Doyle said, according to sources in the room. “This small group of terrorists have made it impossible to spend any money.”
Biden, driven by his Democratic allies’ misgivings about the debt-limit deal, responded: “They have acted like terrorists.”
Biden’s office initially declined to comment about what the vice president said inside the closed-door session, but after POLITICO published the remarks, spokeswoman Kendra Barkoff said: “The word was used by several members of Congress. The vice president does not believe it’s an appropriate term in political discourse.”
Biden later denied he used that term in an interview with CBS.
“I did not use the terrorism word,” Biden told CBS Evening News anchor and managing editor Scott Pelley.
Earlier in the day, Biden told Senate Democrats that Republican leaders have “guns to their heads” in trying to negotiate deals.
The vice president’s hot rhetoric about tea party Republicans underscored the tense moment on Capitol Hill as four party leaders in both chambers work to round up the needed votes in an abbreviated time frame. The bill would raise the debt limit by as much as $2.4 trillion through the end of next year and reduce the deficit by an equal amount over the next decade.
Democrats had no shortage of colorful phrases in wake of the deal.
Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Mo.) called it a “Satan sandwich,” and Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) called seemed to enjoy the heat analogy, saying: “the Tea Partiers and the GOP have made their slash and burn lunacy clear, and while I do not love this compromise, my vote is a hose to stop the burning. The arsonists must be stopped.
The deal was consummated Sunday night, the text of the bill was posted in the wee hours of Monday morning, and the House was expected to vote first on it Monday afternoon or evening. But there are still plenty of concerns in both parties and in both chambers.
Liberal Democrats have had the most averse reaction to the plan, which ensures between $2.1 trillion and $2.4 trillion in deficit reduction over the next decade without requiring any of it to come from tax increases.
Biden told Democratic lawmakers that the deal would take away the tea party’s “weapon of mass destruction” — the threat of a default on U.S. debt obligations.
“They have no compunction about blowing up the economy to get what they want,” Doyle told POLITICO after the meeting.
