Speaking of your avatars, ExRoadie, I heard that Mr. T was Muhammad Ali's bodyguard. Does anybody know if this was true?
Yup..
After college, Mr. T served in the Army as a military policeman, played briefly for the Green Bay Packers, and also spent time working as a bodyguard -- for Michael Jackson, Steve McQueen, Muhammad Ali, Leon Spinks, LeVar Burton, and Diana Ross.

Steve McQueens body guard, how badass is that. :D

You gotta remember that McQueen's body was ravaged by years of drug and alcohol abuse before the mesothelioma kicked in. In the end the poor bastard couldn't even go to the bathroom by himself.

 

The same lawyer that broke the tobacco companies also broke the asbestos industry. Dickie Scruggs a local attorney that brought both cases to trial and won right here in South Mississippi. Pascagoula is the home of Ingalls Shipyard. The use of asbestos was common in ship building and many local workers suffered from its affects.

 

Scruggs was able to find company documents that showed they knew asbestos was harmful but kept selling and using it.

 

Basically, the same thing happened with the tobacco companies. The movie "The Insider" was based upon the rat and people involved in releasing the secret tobacco documents. Scruggs was able to get the documents entered as evidence at trial.

 

This trial led to the huge tobacco settlement with the different states that was supposed to go to reducing or stopping smoking. Instead the liberal politicians have used this money to create even more entitlements to keep getting them related.

 

LOL That was a mini-rant.

 

Anyway, Steve McQueen was profiled in court as a person that had "limited exposure" to asbestos during his career in the Marine Corps but still died from it.
