Raspberries!

It seems that everyone loved Carol Channing. One of the nine movies Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy made together was 1948’s State of the Union. Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were convicted of espionage associated with the Soviet Union in a case prosecuted by Roy Cohn, whose name today might be…

Just Say No

Earlier this week, I saw the Turner Classic Movies montage of those who died last year. And as is usually the case when seeing one of these “In Memoriam” pieces, someone died and I didn’t know it. Bradford Dillman was a working actor, probably best remembered today as Robert Redford’s…

Total Recall

So that California farm with the E. coli laced romaine lettuce has now recalled its red leaf lettuce, green leaf lettuce, and cauliflower. Boy, am I glad that farm isn’t raising Cheetos.

Hot Nerds & High Anxiety

For me, the nerdy hot thing started with Howard Bannister.  And, even if the term “nerdy hot” actually is an oxymoron, it didn’t much matter when Ryan O’Neal as Howard dropped his pajama bottoms in the bathroom doorway while Barbra Streisand was taking a bubble bath in What’s Up, Doc?…

And Miss Merriam Makes Me Think A Little

The English language has a rich and robust vocabulary.  So much so that I ended up in a linguistic wormhole trying to define the actual difference between some words that keep getting thrown around today.  For insight, I consulted by old friend, Miss Merriam-Webster. So I started with “privilege.”  Heard…
