    Committing faud in a disaster zone is a federal crime!

    European Brickworks did quite well from the start though, at least according to Arnold's memory, thanks to the 1971 Sylmar earthquake's severe damage to many Los Angeles residential homes.

    Arnold would brag a decade later on to a national television audience on the Johnny Carson Show, a scene described by Arnold's biographer, Laurence Leamer: "[Arnold] made it seem as if he and Franco had been a step above con artists."
    Here's Arnold: "Franco climbed up on the chimney -- and he is a very strong guy and a lifter, he pushed all the chimneys over so they fell down.

    So these people come and say 'Oh, thank you for helping us. They could have fallen on somebody's head."

    "Oh, what a racket," Carson exclaimed. "You go and push chimneys down and then rebuild them."

    "Exactly," Arnold responded, chuckling.

    Of course there's going to be war. That's what dictators do when they get bored with oppressing only their own people.
