    RIP Edd !

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    One of the very few. RIP, "Kookie".

Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune

    I always wondered why they called Ed Byrnes "Kookie" until I saw 77 Sunset Strip a couple of years ago. What a great show [snap, snap]!

    I did read recently, however, that when Jack Webb took over Warner Brothers, his meddling in the show is what caused it to tank (and cost him the job).

    “…democratic socialism, the great utopia of the last few generations, is not only unachievable but that to strive for it produces something utterly different – the very destruction of freedom itself. As has been aptly said: ‘What has always made the state a hell on earth has been precisely that man has tried to make it his heaven.'” F.A. Hayek

    I've been watching 77 SS reruns a lot lately, kind of an odd coincidence. RIP, Edd. Buck Henry also passed on the other day.
