Pro-wrestler,The (original) Sheik is very ill and in the hospital. His wife (who accompanied to him in the late 50's/early 60's as The Princess) tells me that many fans have been sending cards/letters, which Sheik really enjoys reading. If you would like to send him a card, which he will read, send to the following address:
The Sheik World Wide Sports Big Time Wrestling P.O. Box 123 Williamston, Michigan 48895
This man has given us many great memories over the last fifty years. Write him and share some with him.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasure. From that moment on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most money from the public treasury, with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy followed by a dictatorship.
The average age of the world's great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage.
I caught my first episode of ROH on HDNet the other day...and man, I was impressed. The Bravado brothers were incredibly fun to watch. Their line about facing the Worlds Greatest Tag Team (from seven years ago) was brilliant.
