|Jul-19-15|| ||playground player: <Jim Bartle> Ward Bond died about a third of the way into Wagon Train's fourth season, but the series' format was loose enough to survive the loss of its star. With Rawhide, who appreciated what Eric Fleming meant to the show until we lost him?|
He was going to be married when he returned from shooting that movie in South America.
Poor Fleming--he had a hard life. Had to run away from home, as a child, to escape abuse.
Yes, Rawhide was a great show--and don't forget the great character actor, Paul Brinegar, as the cook, Wishbone.

|Jul-20-15|| ||Jim Bartle: I never saw "Wagon Train," though I know it was a huge hit. We didn't get a TV until 1963 or 1964 and I think it was ending about that time.|
I sometimes go on binges watching "Gunsmoke." It's simple but it's good. I prefer the early years with Dennis Weaver.
|Jul-20-15|| ||playground player: <Jim Bartle> I have only the vaguest memories of a time before TV. |
We had the old-fashioned kind, full of vacuum tubes. When it went on the fritz, my uncle would come over and he and my father would take it apart, all over the living room floor, looking for suspect tubes. My uncle was an electronics wiz working for RCA, with a slew of patents to his name--so they always succeeded in fixing the TV. They would take the iffy tubes to the hardware store, where they had a tube-testing machine, replace the bad ones, and put the whole thing back together. And it would be as right as rain for the next several weeks or so.
I never got to see <Gunsmoke>, my mother ruling that it was on too late at night. As it was, my brother and I used to watch <Maverick> on Sunday nights through a crack in the bedroom door.
We watch <Wagon Train> on discs, which we buy by the season. We're currently working our way through Season 4. It's every bit as good, and then some, as I remember it.

|Jul-22-15|| ||playground player: <Esteemed Colleagues> For something completely different today,|
Writing about fantasy novels while Planned Parenthood brags about all the money they make, selling parts of aborted babies?
Well, yeah--why not? Just trying to do one little thing that has a chance of being constructive.

|Jul-23-15|| ||WannaBe: Go to news.google.com and then search "iowa school district body camera"|
|Jul-23-15|| ||playground player: <WannaBe> Somewhere in that story there's something that they're not telling us--like, for instance, what touched off this move in the first place.|
I don't know what they've left out of the news story, but I do know this:
The seed bed of statism is the public school.
|Jul-23-15|| ||WannaBe: <PP> one principal was wrongly accused of kicking a student. (Article from slate.com)|
|Jul-24-15|| ||cormier: Gospel: " He who hears the word and understands it bears fruit " ... http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings...|
|Jul-24-15|| ||playground player: <WannaBe> You can always tell when a writer or speaker has never, ever tried to teach inside a modern classroom. They yap and yap about how the business at hand is "education," not "law and order."|
Speaking from personal experiences which I'm sorry I ever had, it's impossible to teach in a room where there is no law and order. Not only impossible, but sometimes dangerous. (Like the time they took the radiator apart and started throwing chunks of metal at each other--and at me.) When the "students" are literally crawling around on the floor, or balancing on desk tops, or making out, fighting, sleeping, or just making as much noise as humanly possible--well, you just can't teach.
And to think--it's all the doing of "progressive educators" with letters after their names,and tons of intellectual prestige.
Our culture today is enough to make a hyena retch.
|Jul-25-15|| ||cormier: Gospel : Christ reveals to Jacques true glory of the Apostle ... http://www.usccb.org/bible/readings...|
|Jul-26-15|| ||playground player: <cormier> How did the Hebrew name Yacov/Jacob get to be "James" in English? I can see how it would come out as "Jacques" in French--but "James"? Although that's not as far out as "Diego."|

|Jul-27-15|| ||playground player: <cormier> Could be, could be...|
<Esteemed Colleagues> A lot of Detroit's public buildings are in ruins--but at least the city now has an enormous statue of Satan ( http://leeduigon.com/2015/07/27/sat... ).
I guess here is where a liberal comes in and says something about all our Congressmen and our (heh-heh) "president" being "Christians" (as they themselves put it) and there's absolutely nothing wrong here, the universe is functioning as it should, whee-hah.

|Jul-28-15|| ||cormier: Matthew 17:1-13 New International Version (NIV)
17 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, <James> and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. 2 There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light.
|Jul-28-15|| ||playground player: <Esteemed Colleagues> For those who are still dumbfounded that feminists get no respect,|
Betcha didn't know air conditioning is a vicious testosterone-laden scheme to oppress wimmin.
<Mrs. PGP> says, "When they come for my air conditioner, they'll have to pry it from my hot dead fingers."
