Neal Barrett, Jr., Texan writer of some decidedly offbeat science fiction, passed on the 12th, aged 85.

Here is link to a very recent piece of his, in which he remembers November 22, 1963.

Reminds me of that February back in 2006 when we lost Don Knotts, Darren McGavin, and Dennis Weaver over two days.

Pete Seeger was my second favorite legend right after Ray Bradbury.

...a character who was the very epitome of "long-suffering", thanks to Mrs Oleson (and their intolerable offspring) !

Yes, another sad passing. One of the heroes of the Greatest Generation! Shirley Temple (Black) was credited by FDR as being as instrumental in getting the nation out of the Great Depression as any political or social effort attempted at that time. Spirit and joy was always evident in her youthful screen presence.

Mrs. Black became a diplomat and ambassador in her adult years and was highly respected throughout her very significant life!

Peace.

While in college, in the 70s, I worked at the L.A. Zoo. (Chuckle. Snort.) One of my fellow works was Louie Assideo. Louie’s family were major cocoa bean land owners in Ghana. One day Louie asked me if I wished to be invited to the Ghanaian Embassy because they were hosting a birthday party for the American Ambassador to Ghana.
(One must know that Ghana’s English did not use feminine pronouns.)
When Louie invited me he said something like “Would you like to go as my guest and meet Ambassador Black? He was a very famous actor.” I graciously declined. That evening, I’m watching the news and they had a piece on the party telling me that Ambassador Black was SHIRLEY TEMPLE BLACK. The next weekend I told Louie that all he had to do was use her full name and I’d have rented that tux.
