Joseph has been in photography all his life. He was born (1950) with a large format camera in his hand. His innovative pre birth photography was the pre-cursor to the Cat Scan. Doctors after seeing these photos quickly questioned him. He waved them off as he was on another project as a war photographer during the Korean War. Due to his very small size he got many ground level pictures. In the 1960s while walking across America he was in Dallas and got the Grassy Knoll photo that became famous. In 1968 he was a stowaway aboard the Apollo spacecraft and shot the first photos of the moon landing and proved that it was a hoax. It was not Known he was aboard the Apollo Craft until after the photos were released to the press. He spent the next 20 years in a CIA prison camp in Miami Beach, Fl with Jackie Gleasonat the Ritz a 5 start hotel. After his release he spent a year photographing Space Aliens at area 51. Due to his impressive credentials and complete honesty in recounting the history of his life he was encouraged to run for an was elected a U.S. Senator. Now he spends his time weighting Senate Bills ( with a scale) and relaxing on JPGmag.com

P.S. All that free paper makes a great fire starter for the fireplace! No point in reading the Bill and all that other stuff I can't understand it anyway.

P.S. II We always print double space and on one side because we want to save the trees ????

Wait a minuite That's just for you guys not us.

InFact we exempt ourselfs from many of the Laws we wright (those of us who can) so we can get Rich

We are impotent Oh! I mean important!

In the story Stef and Joes wedding.

  • Bailey Cooper

    Bailey Cooper   said (12 Mar 2012):

    Was a Hoyer lift required for H.R. 4872? Oh, yes, I almost forgot. I was shooting as a zygote. My mother was working as an extra on The Maltese Falcon. One night, she and Sam Spade got, uh, you know, uh... friendly in his trailer. During this tete e tete encounter, Sam injected a micro camera which found its way to the left fallopian tube cilia and got tangled up there until I floated by a day or two later. I spotted the zoom lens right off and snatched it out of the kelp and started snapping. And, voila, electron micrograph imaging. I know this is a blow, but don't take it personally. Unavoidable it seems.
