7:10: Mr. X. joins Bill in studio today. We’re talking today about last week’s passing of Measure 101. Ed believes, this measure passing has a lot to do with the presence and push of the Oregon Student Association, and when you see the pure numbers you can see how the numbers in Jackson County pushed into the yes category. Remember that there are large numbers voting that are not actually “residents” but can vote anyway, this is a large part of the “progressive hoard”. Here are some links that take you to evidence of this trend.
8:10: Gary Kennedy, former General Counsel for American Airlines and author of the book, Twelve Years of Turbulence that describes his tenure at American Airlines.
Instagram Fitness model Jen Selter tweeted a video of her being removed from an American Airlines flight by police. Selter’s flight had been delayed by two hours and when she got up to stretch an American Airlines flight attendant called the police to have her removed. Other passengers said Selter did nothing wrong. Police said that American called the shots on the decision. American is saying they offered Selter an alternative flight that she declined. This seem to be a common occurrence with more passengers videoing these encounters. Why is this happening? How are these confrontations affecting the airlines and passengers attitudes towards the airlines?

Bill Pearl: Mr. Universe
Bill Pearl was born in 1930 in Prineville, Oregon, and the family moved to different places before finally settling in Yakima, Washington. He had an intense desire to be strong and well built, and as early as age ten, Bill looked for the hardest neighborhood jobs to build his strength and body. A wartime copy of Strength and Health magazine focused his desire when he saw the pictures of “iron men” such as Steven Reeves: He wanted to have his picture in that magazine. Athletically inclined, he ran track, played football, wrestled, worked on weights, and was on his high-school swimming team.
He joined the U.S. Navy in 1950 for four years, where he discovered he could work out in gyms and receive the property training and equipment when stationed in San Diego. Bill entered his first physique contest in 1952 and placed third in the annual Mr. San Diego contest. One year later, he won the titles of Mr. Oceanside, Mr. Southern California, Mr. California, Mr. America, and Mr. Universe (besting a 23-year-old Sean Connery in this amateur contest) all in one year.
In 1954, Bill Pearl moved to Sacramento, California, and opened his first gym with the money he had saved for the years he was in the U.S. Navy. Although he built this to a chain of nine gyms, he cut back to one owing to the time demands and to keep training. As Pearl trained hard and smart, he won more titles: the Mr. U.S.A. contest in 1956 over the top 35 physique men in the country; the 1961 Professional Mr. Universe contest in London, England, where he was the unanimous winner, receiving every first place vote.
During the 1960s, Pearl performed as a “showman” guest poser, as well as a strength act which included spike bending, chain breaking, tearing auto license plates in half, and blowing up hot water bottles until they burst. He was also performing by bench pressing 450 lbs., front-squatting 500 lbs., and full squatting 605 lbs. at a body weight of 218 lbs.
After winning the professional Mr. Universe title in 1971, Pearl finally retired from active competition, having won 4 in the past 18 years. At age 41 then, he weighed 242 pounds with a height of 5’10” and his arms measured 21 inches. Bill was a perfectionist, driven, a vegetarian (at age 39, but eating eggs and dairy products), a showman, and a master of technique. He refused to use anabolic steroids.
Pearl had his own monthly columns in bodybuilding magazines during the 1970s and 1980s. He was the first professional bodybuilder to pose to music, as noted in his performing exhibitions, and the first to author bodybuilding training courses/booklets. In 1979, he published “Keys to the Inner Universe”–640 pages and weighing 5 pounds–which was a bodybuilding and weight-training manual for coaches, trainers, and professionals (even amateurs). In 1985, he published the exercise book, “Getting Stronger: Weight Training for Men and Women,” which has sold over 350,000 copies.
Bill and his wife Judy, moved to the Rogue Valley in 1980. He published his autobiography in 2003 (“Beyond the Universe: The Bill Pearl Story”) and was awarded the Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004. A marketing master, he brought out more physical-training books, is a consultant for Life Fitness (with equipment as stationary bikes and treadmills), has a home gym for trainees, continues to accept awards, and lives in Phoenix.
Bill still gets up regularly at 3:00 a.m. to train six days a week; he works on his antique automobiles in his spare time. His website ends: “In short, Bill and Judy have found the best of two worlds through their move to Oregon: peace and tranquility at home, and challenging new opportunities and ways to pass his knowledge and experience of the sport of bodybuilding to others.”
