I had to actually beat my Grandpa about the head, neck & chest area when I caught him watching Bill Moyers "version" of the Bible on NPR. (Sin is in! All is forgiven! Screw God! Vote Democrat!)

Good Golly! You can't leave the old folks alone for ONE d@mn minute lest the lefties are preying upon them through NPR!

Evil scum.

Eulogy to be given by Senator John Kerry, who will compare Jenjis to the U.S.Military in SE Asia circa 1960-70's. Cutting off arms, legs, misc. other body parts, sticking tounge out, making rude noises, etc.

Ricardo Montalban was also in Escape From The Planet of the Apes. He was in Colombo and a lot of other stuff in the Seventies, usually playing the bad guy. Then came Fantasy Island and Tattoo (who I think is still alive, went nuts and became Chia Head).

Meanwhile William Shatner was in Kingdom of the Spiders (a real classic!) and this. He also starred in T.J. Hooker in the Eighties and went on to star on Boston Legal. In the Seventies Bill tried his hand at music with his unique versions of "Mr. Tamborine Man" and "Rocket Man." In 1986 he made a memorable appearance on Saturday Night Live as himself at a Star Trek convention ("Get a life!!!")

When his time comes I hope he's buried in a coffin lined with rich Corinthian leather.
