Speaking of ‘The New 30’….

Standard

Get a load of this.

A man still alive — allegedly born BEFORE Emmett, in 1870.

I often fantasize what it would be like to talk to someone who knew Emmett. I certainly wouldn’t expect to find anyone still around who is 130+ years old who might have known him.

Mr. Gotho wouldn’t have known Emmett.

But it is mindblowing to think what this man has witnessed in his lifetime.
