When the euro was introduced in Januarythe United Kingdom was conspicuously absent from the list of European countries adopting the common currency. Although the current Labor government led by Prime Minister Tony Blair appears to be in favor of joining the euro club, it is not clear at the moment if that will actually happen.
He's superficially defending Jim's sexual dalliances, saying no one is perfect, many celebrities did the same thing, etc. But the problem with the dozens of sexual references in Jim Reeves His Untold Story is not the extreme over emphasis on sex Jordan even shockingly refers to the size of Reeves penis!
And that is the fact that Jordan did not have to tell every little sexual story, anecdote, or rumor he collected on Reeves. He could have made his case briefly, by presenting some facts, and then moved on. He did not have to say something about sex on just about every other page in every chapter.
It makes one wonder just who was obsessed with sex.
There is at least one historical precedent for not telling everything which has been learned or rumored about a public figure. Throughout his presidency, U.
Roosevelt's polio paralysis was known by every reporter who covered The White House, but they chose not to publicize it. They knew, but those who had the information and could have reported it decided instead to respect FDR, and even protect him, apparently because his condition was unrelated to his job.
Jordan might be feeling some heat from various places because of all the sexual smut he included in the book, and so he's employing the old tactic of using a straw man. Instead of defending his use of sex and more sex in his book, he's diverting the attention away from himself and placing it on Jim.
Jordan did not have to tell everything he knew, simply because he had the information. He could have followed the example of the White House reporters: Jim's sexual escapades had nothing to do with using that wonderful voice and talent for recording and performing his music. After all, Jim Reeves is famous because he was a great singer, not because he had sex with women who were not his wife.
But Jordan chose to do what he did. He put in his book some kind of sexual reference again and again whether it was necessary to telling the story or not. But you will not see the vast majority of those sexual references in his so-called "index".
The index is quite incomplete for that reason alone.
It likely was selective exclusion. Because he continues to market the books and related materials, it must be assumed that his main motivation is profit. And, unfortunately, that old entertainment maxim is still true for those wishing to make a dollar:ARCHIVED NEWS ITEMS.

Chabad-Lubavitch. Global Security has hypothesized that Donald Trump may be a Manchurian Candidate planted by the Russian mafia in collusion with the Russian government.

Britain has, so far, refused to change its currency, the pound sterling, to the Euro. Whether the United Kingdom will eventually join the euro club is a matter of considerable importance for the future of European Union as well as that of the United Kingdom.
The joining of the United Kingdom with its sophisticated finance industry will most certainly help propel the euro into a global currency status rivaling the U.S. dollar.
