    The Joe Marlowe had called out …that he/his case (me, Candy w/head injury from United States Proud Housing & Urban Development)…while being old/held against his will…like P.O.W. but we wait for President Clinton-SpeakOut about that &since it was Nancy Reagan with him, seen by me & to me to say it…near Laundromat across from St. Joe's. Reagan wondered why no fan-fare & that is BIG and due to Obama did not give me the job-federal related money to Loans Jobs I had @HUD but gave no 'union, many coworkers & bosses all talking about Reagan which is the norm…so she had said she had to die that day! and her daugher!! Diplomats…they said about hers)…back to Joe? he is supposed to have P.O.W. status w/Gov known to CLINTON and he/his were called Just Fraud!! …near LoveJoy and don't tell him about Canday Rick to be Prince with ARAFAT AND HAS GREAT CONNECTIONS WITH THE Police…like he was one!! then he is killer of Pope, Reagan and Anwar Sadat and due to they blamed me who dated him in 1975.
