Page 6 POST-GAZETTE, JANUARY 23, 2015 by Bennett Molinari and Richard Molinari Can anything be more gratifying than reuniting with an old acquaintance? To reconnect with someone who once was a good friend and business associate is an opportunity that does not happen frequently. It hap- pened to us about a month ago. We arrived home to dis- cover the voice of an old friend on our answer ma- chine who we had not heard from in almost twenty years. Tony is one of England's most talented metal workers who supplied us while in our former business some of our most outstanding serving pieces. Whenever we were in En- gland, Tony always made it a point to show us sights and take us on weekend trips to places that we either never heard of or would have eas- ily overlooked. Our memo- rable trips to England's Lakes District, Wales and the Cotswolds' were all made possible by Tony. We tried returning his phone call but his old num- ber was no longer in service. We were about to try London information when the phone rang, it was Tony, and for the next half hour we spoke, catching up on our lives and reminiscing on the great times we all had together. We found that he had re- cently retired and is turning his attention to his formi- dable ability as a sculptor. Tony is working in both marble and bronze doing what he had always wanted to do, spending more time on his art. He remains an avid sailor and invited us on a trip to the Channel Islands when next in England; an invitation we happily ac- cepted. We filled Tony in on what we have been doing, the book we recently completed pertaining to our early days in Boston, our print busi- ness, recent website and our enthusiastic embrace of ex- ercise and health foods. We then forwarded emails to each other with attached photos of recent art work. Tony's work is beautiful, from a Pieta in copper to a marble bust, he remains the consummate artist. He re- cently did several oil paint- ings, a medium he never worked in, predictably they were beautiful. Long ago we dubbed him a modern day Michelangelo. Hearing from Tony brought back so many good memories of England and ac- quaintances that we've made through our travels both for business and recre- ation. We are grateful for an opportunity that does not come often, the chance to reunite with an old and good friend. State of the Union :(Continued from Page, 1) St. Barack, we are ending our endless wars, we are putting people back to work, our future seems bright and boundless. If there is still bad news out there, you can still blame it on Bush, past, present and future. We have a president who channeled Elizabeth Warren's Oklahoma popu- lism. Be happy, don't worry. We will get greedy Wall Street. Everyone gets a fair deal. The future belongs to the middle-class. Long live free college tuition. End per- sonal debt. Get your EBT card, etc. Let the greedy one percent pay for everything. I am on your side. The hour is now. Long live Teddy Roosevelt and the Bull Moose Party. Look around that room as the president spoke, There were fewer clapping seals, but they were clapping as loudly as possible. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid pre- tend they are still in charge. Problem in Washington, most of our pols either still don't get it or don't want to get it. Obama is now on the cam- paign trail again pushing his talking points to an un- receptive America. Latest polls say it "all. When asked to name the worse president since 1945, the answer is a loud Barack Obama. If the question was, name the worse president since 1900, it would still be Obama. When it comes to the economy, when it comes to national security, when it comes to jobs or confidence in ourselves, America stands at the crossroads. We have had six years of deflated leadership. We are a ship adrift at sea hoping to avoid one iceberg after another. Our enemies no longer fear us, our allies no longer trust us and the American people hold on for dear life. Obama has divided us like no president before him. There is no middle ground with this guy. He speaks for few and says very little of value. America today is drown- ing. We are under attack by our enemies and afraid to name them. The greatest danger facing America today is not believing in ourselves once again. The State of the Union Ad- dress has been delivered and now we must move forward knowing very little will come of it because you need a leader to deliver on it. Good news, there is just one more State of the Union left to be delivered next January. When it comes to the Obama Administration, once again we saw a lot more said than done. Long live America. We will survive. Leave the to Us[ With a Gift Subscription to the Post-Gazette, your generosity will be remembered every week of the year. We'll send the recipient an announcement of your gift.

But that potential market is nowhere near the 95% that the Presi- dent implied. According to Dave Tilford of the Sierra Club, "With less than 5 per- cent of world population, the U.S. uses one-third of the world's paper, a quarter of the world's oil, 23 percent of the coal, 27 percent of the alumi- num, and 19 percent of the copper."
