WWII Navy veteran inventor of Milton Bradley’s The Game of Life dies at 99

Reuben Klamer, the Canton-born inventor of the popular board game The Game of Life, has died. He was 99. Klamer was commissioned by the Milton Bradley Co. (now Hasbro) to create the game, which made its debut at the International Toy Fair in 1960. Considered one of the best-selling games of all time and second in popularity only to Monopoly, The Game of Life was inducted in 2010 into the National Toy Hall of Fame at The Strong Museum in Rochester, New York. While best known for The Game of Life, Klamer created about 200 other toy products, including the Art Linkletter Hoop, Gaylord the Walking Dog, Dolly Darlings, Moon Rocks, Erector-Constructor Sets and Busy Blocks. “My life has been one rocky road after the other, and every once in a while I get a hit,” Klamer told the Columbus Dispatch in 2012. He also worked in television helping to design special effects and prop weapons for “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” and “Star Trek,” and a “Pink Panther” promotional vehicle. “With a gift for anticipating and capitalizing on trends, developing consumer ‘must-haves’ across categories and working in a variety of media, Klamer’s products have been marketed by industry leaders in more than 60 countries on six continents,” the New York City-based Toy Association said. Klamer died Tuesday at his home in La Jolla, California. Klamer was born in Canton, Ohio Klamer was born June 20, 1922, in Canton to Romanian-Jewish immigrants, Rachel (Levenson) and Joseph Klamer. He studied at George Washington University and graduated from Ohio State University with a degree in business. At the onset of World War II, Klamer enrolled in the U.S. Navy Midshipman School at Northwestern University and served in combat as an officer in the U.S. Navy amphibious landing forces in the Pacific. He also completed electives in engineering at the University of Michigan after joining the U.S. Navy V-7 Program. Following the war, Klamer developed his first major invention, a collapsible rack called the “Fashion-aire Rack” which allowed the air-freighting of garments

The Atlantic’s Franklin Foer Allegedly Identified As “Reporter-2” In The Sussmann Indictment

The Atlantic’s Franklin Foer Allegedly Identified As “Reporter-2” In The Sussmann Indictment Authored by Jonathan Turley, I have a column today in the Hill on the indictment of former Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann by Special Counsel John Durham. The indictment fills in a great number of gaps on one of the Russian collusion allegations pushed by the Clinton campaign: Alpha bank. Sussman and others reportedly pushed the implausible claim that the Russian bank served as a conduit for communications between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. The indictment removes the identity of key actors like a “Tech Executive” who used his connections with an Internet company to help the Clinton campaign (and said he was promised a top cyber security position in the widely anticipated Clinton Administration). One of those figures however may have been identified: “Reporter-2.”  Atlantic staff writer Franklin Foer wrote an article for Slate that seems to track the account of the indictment and, as such, raises questions over his role as a conduit for the Clinton campaign’s effort to spread the false story. The indictment discusses how Fusion GPS pushed for the publication of the story, telling Foer that it was “time to hurry” on the story: “The Investigative Firm Employee’s email stated, ‘time to hurry’ suggesting that Reporter-2 should hurry to publish an article regarding the Russian Bank-1 allegations. In response, Reporter-2 emailed to the Investigative Firm Employee a draft article regarding the Russian Bank-1 allegations, along with the cover message: ‘Here’s the first 2500 words.’” The indictment states Reporter-2 published the article “on or about the following day, October, 31, 2016.” That is when Slate published a piece written by Foer headlined, “Was a Trump Server Communicating With Russia?”  The story then was pushed by the Clinton campaign. Foer has not addressed this close coordination with Fusion, including the showing
