    #80 William Randolph Hearst- Ever heard of hearst castle? yep that is his, you should visit sometime it is quite amazing, he pretty much had his own zoo and a ton of other cool stuff. He owned a newspaper back in the day. Another fun fact is that you know how on some movies they say this is based on someones life yada yada yada well that is because the movie ‘Citizen Cane’ was written about him but he didn’t like how it portrayed his life so he sued… anyways there is a good movie you should see and a cool place you can go. Glad you are doing better.
    P.S. ‘Rosebud’ haha
