First see this older post:
Sinclair, Elizabeth…… crashed on the island and terrorized its residents for a week after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The people of Niʻihau are known for their gemlike lei pūpū (shell lei) craftsmanship, and speak Hawaiian as a primary language. The island is generally off-limits to all but relatives of the island’s owners, U.S. Navy personnel, government officials and invited guests, giving it the nickname “The Forbidden Isle.” Beginning in 1987, a limited number of supervised activity tours and hunting safaris have opened to tourists. The island is currently managed by Bruce and Keith Robinson. They have turned down all offers to sell it including $1 billion from the U.S. governme
Legends…WHAT exactly are legands made of ? That is a deeper question than it appears to be.
It is so funny how like minds work. Just the other day I was looking into the name Arnie (Arnold) Nachmanoff and his wife Suzie, from old photos of Barack Obama Sr. with them in Hawaii. I did some other digging too and stumbled upon a power company. Interesting things we happen upon when reading and all of that. Anyway, tonight I read other people talking about an interesting new show on TNT and I read the name Nachmanoff again. Bingo. How interesting is that ? To hear such an odd name again, out of the blue after just going over it again so recently. Just one of those feeble sort of light bulb moments. So…let us look. First, this was the power company I stumbled upon when I misspelled Arnie’s last name. It has been many years..
Then, after locating old Hawaii photos, I also found the topic again from old reads. Free Republic had done a lot of work on Arnie and his wife back in time too.

Then I find a malaria etc..chemist connected to the name:
Daniel L. Klayman, the longtime head of the organic chemistry section of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in Washington, died on Thursday at Holy Cross Hospital in Silver Spring, Md. He was 63 years old and lived in Chevy Chase, Md.
He died of a heart attack that he suffered at home, said a cousin, Arnold Nachmanoff.
Dr. Klayman was an authority on drugs to combat malaria and a wide variety of other diseases and on drugs to combat radiation sickness. He held 15 United States patents on drugs he developed. A native of the Inwood section of Manhattan, he earned a doctorate in organic chemistry from Rutgers University in 1956, taught at Hofstra University and joined the institute in 1959. He is survived by his wife, the former Dora Basch; a daughter, Wanda, and a son, Elliott, both of Washington, and his father, Harry, of Silver Spring.
Then we have the musical brother of the Legends writer. Al Stewart etc:
Next we have the Legends writer:
The plot revolves around a U.S. undercover agent who’s an expert at assuming false identities. A “legend” in CIA parlance IS a false identity. The subplot is that a mysterious stranger accosts the protagonist and tells him that he’s not who he thinks he is--meaning that even the identity that the agent believes is his own self is NOT. It’s a “legend”, too. The stranger tells him that he doesn’t know who he is, either, and that they were never supposed to remember.
And the writer of Legends:
Those Little things again…some people just always think of them.
Soundex Code for Little = L340
Soundex Code for Littell = L340
In addition to many supporters, he had many enemies and critics. One of his most notable enemies was one time friend and pupil Aleister Crowley, who portrayed Mathers as a villain named SRMD in his 1929 novelMoonchild. According to Crowley’s memoirs, The Confessions of Aleister Crowley, Mathers was in the habit of ostensibly playing chess matches against various pagan gods. Mathers would set up the chessboard and seat himself behind the white pieces, with an empty chair opposite him. After making a move for himself, Mathers would then shade his eyes and peer towards the empty chair, waiting for his opponent to signal a move. Mathers would then move a black piece accordingly, then make his next move as white, and so forth. Crowley did not record who won.
Earlier, Crowley wrote in his diary that “As far as I was concerned, Mathers was my only link with the Secret Chiefs to whom I was pledged. I wrote to him offering to place myself and my fortune unreservedly at his disposal; if that meant giving up the Abra-Melin Operation for the present, all right.
Just in time for TRICK or TREAT…
