 I'VE BEEN A HAM SINCE OCTOBER 1983, IT'S BEEN OVER 30 YEARS BEING A HAM.  I AM 65 YEARS OLD AND I'M ORIGINALLY FROM GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN.  MY HEAD WAS RUBBED BY CONGRESSMAN GERALD FORD SEVERAL TIMES IN THE 1950'S.  THIS WAS BECAUSE IN 1955; THE KANSAS CITY MONARCHS BASEBALL CLUB MOVED TO GRAND RAPIDS AFTER THE NEGRO LEAGUE FOLDED.   THE MONARCHS BASEBALL CLUB PLAYED AS A BARNSTORMING NON-LEAGUE TEAM IN THE CITY AND CONGREGATED AT A WELL KNOWN WATERING HOLE DURING THE WEEKENDS FROM 1955 TO DISBANDMENT IN THE MID 1960'S.  THE BAR WAS NEAR DOWNTOWN GRAND RAPIDS ON IONIA AVE.   MY GRANDFATHER WANTED TO SHOW OFF HIS GRANDSON (ME) AND WAS PROUD TO BE AMONG THOSE FORMER NEGRO LEAGUE PLAYERS.  SO WAS REPUBLICAN CONGRESSMAN FORD GOING AFTER POLITICAL VOTES.   GERALD (JERRY) FORD VISITED THE BAR SEVERAL TIMES TO ISSUE (VOTE FOR JERRY) POT HOLDERS TO BE GIVEN OUT THE THE HIGHLY DEMOCRATIC BLACK COMMUNITY.  THE RESULTS WERE GREAT IN A HIGH-LEVEL SPLIT-TICKETING PERFORMANCE FROM THE  SOUTH GRAND RAPIDS COMMUNITIES.  FORD'S OVERALL TERM OF OFFICE WAS FROM 1946 TO 1974.  FORD WAS NEVER A CORRUPT POLITICIAN.  NOTHING WAS EVER SAID BAD ABOUT HIM.  THE REST YOU KNOW ABOUT.  AT 19 YRS OLD, I JOINED THE AIR FORCE AND SERVED HONORABLY FOR 20 YEARS.
