At age 69, it has been a less
boring time on Earth, yet we must wonder what
George's life might have been had the medical community been aware of dyslexia
bipolar conditions back in the 1960's and 70's. From an early age George was
achieve most goals he set for himself and like many high achievers would become
board with a project after meeting his initial goal: until he went to
1967-69, participated in a study group with the infamous author A.L. Ward,
hypnotic regression and progression practices. In 1968 the National Rifle
Association published his first article in their magazine 'American Rifleman'.
George was 14. Soon afterwards his dyslexia dominated his learning abilities and
began failing English classes. Finding other areas of interest not requiring
spelling abilities didn't take long. In 1971 he received payment for his first
professional photograph. The next year George started one of the first ecology
and owned the first 'Head shop' in Northern Arizona. In 1972 he joined the U.S.
Navy, studied aviation ordnance at NAF JAX, Jacksonville, Florida. Then
NAF Andrews, Washington DC.
After leaving the military George married his high school sweetheart and had a
daughter, unfortunately they divorced soon afterwards. In 1977 he began college
married the princess to be of Afghanistan. Tragically, Russia invaded
and killed her uncle, the king. In 1978 he assisted Professor Lavis create the
solar energy program at Arizona Western College in Yuma Arizona. A year later
received his first job as a design engineer, creating a patent design for a gold
recovery invention. By 1980 he and his wife had separated and George paled
with Chuck Hanes from Hanes underwear. George said: after Chuck returned from
Vietnam the family ostracized him, like many vets Chuck couldn't reintegrate
society and had few friends but we could relate to each other.
After a few years on the party scene George settled down, found full-time work
Satellite Store in Phoenix Arizona. In 1984 he wrote the first technical manual
home installations of satellite dishes and traveled to Mexico City for that
countries first international electronics conference to promote his book. In
December of 1993 George was arrested for murder in Laughlin, Nevada. After two
existing in horrible conditions in Yavapai county jail he filed a 37 count, pro
conditions of confinement suit against the county. The day George left for death
the Department of Justice took over the county jail and George settled out of
for an undisclosed amount.

Like too many American citizens released from prison, Kenny Passaro was turned
out with nothing but his dependency on prison-issued psych meds. Of course,
without a permanent address, money, or change of clothes, finding a job or
housing was impossible and resulted in three and half years of homelessness.
Shortly after giving his life to God Passaro joined a local reentry program for
x-offenders, found work, saved his paycheck, and arranged housing. Over the next
five years, Passaro became a notary and licensed minister in NY and NJ.
Serves on his church's Evangelism Team and volunteers in the community food
programs. Knowing the difficulties people in prisons are faced with Passaro
started a prisoner services company. As with most underfunded start-ups with
inexperienced owners, it soon failed. Undeterred, Passaro studied business
practices, saved his money and in early 2022 purchased Prison Living Press. The
company publishes online content for prison tablets and two print magazines:
Offline Shopper and Snail Mail Pen Paling.
In August of 2023, Passaro learned of the closing of Cadmus Publishing thus
leaving nearly 300 authors without a distributor. Passaro reached out to his
mentor, George Kayer, and together arranged the purchase of Cadmus Publishing.
