Signifying Nothing

Fred Benninger, the former chairman of MGM Grand and the MGM studio, died at 86 at his home in Las Vegas on Sunday, Feb. 29, 2004.

“Mr. Benninger was well known in the business world for decades, but he made his biggest mark in the gambling industry.”

Today’s New York Times

For Benninger, who died on Oscar Day, a two-part story.

Part One

From an entry for
Oscar Day:

Types of Ambiguity

1.  Oscar: military phonetic
     for the letter ‘O’


6.  Macbeth  “…. a tale
Told by an idiot,
full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”

7.  Enter a Messenger.

Part Two

From an entry for
 Columbus Day, 2003:

Spinnin’ Wheel,
Spinnin’ True
