    But how nice would it be to wake up tomorrow and be back in the days of Red Skelton, my 70' Ford Maverick, and sticking my finger in Debbie M's stink-hole again. Just for 24 hours. How cool would that be?

    Anybody remember Laugh-In? Ed Sullivan? Hallibaloo? Shindig? Malibu U? Paradise Island? 77 Sunset Strip? And John Wayne movies. And the new weekely episode of Batman. Pow! Zowie! Jetson's and Flintstones.

    It's funny you should say that, because I consider myself progressive. However, I'm definitely not a liberal. And I was thinking of writing a blog that explains the difference between the two.

    I only saw Red Skelton in "Hatari," and that was about it. However, I LOVED watching "Get Smart" on Nick At Nite as a kid, and "Dobie Gillis" too. Also loved the Adam West "Batman." I would watch that after school on the Family Channel. That show made me crush on Batgirl. And Catwoman.

    Wouldn't most of you guys agree?

    Must be in the Hollywood water.

    But Red Skelton was a sweet, passive, man of conviction who lived his life making other people feel better. He played the part of a clown. He knew his part.

    Today's Hollywood clowns could learn a lesson from Red.

    Some of us even go back farther then that and remember Sky King, The Green Hornet, Inner Sanctum, Jack Benny, Fibber MCGee and Molly, George and Gracy, Bob Hope, The Great Gildersleevem etc, all radio shows of the forties and fifties.....

    Ask the Democrats who were in control of Congress for years before.
