From the Danube River of Vienna, Austria to the Hot Air Ballon Festival of Albuquerque! Travel guru Kevin Jackson is one of the most interesting men I know.

8 years ago, I told Kevin that a group of very close friends and I had visited Cafe Central in the Central Platz of Vienna - where I did research for a then-upcoming historical science fiction book( www.amazon.com/Trust-What-We-Cannot-See/dp/1532083246 )

Today while in Austria, my close friend, world traveler and West Point Classmate, Kevin Jackson, visited that same historically amazing coffee shop - where Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Trotsky and Tito all regularly visited in 1913. And…this Autumn we will be guests of Kevin’s in Albuquerque to ride in his West Point Hot Air Balloon at the Albuquerque Balloon Festival!! We tipped him off about Cafe Central and he conquered it today. In a short four months, he’ll take us for the ride of our lives to conquer that! That’s adventure!!

Watch as little-kid-fans in Kansas’s City Chiefs’ NFL jerseys begin making statements to their parents about things that simply don’t seem to make sense to them about today’s discussions in the world.

By definition:
“The phrase "emperor's new clothes" has become an idiom about logical fallacies.[19][20] The story may be explained by pluralistic ignorance.[21] The story is about a situation where "no one believes, but everyone believes that everyone else believes. Or alternatively, everyone is ignorant to whether the emperor has clothes on or not, but believes that everyone else is not ignorant."[22]
