June 17, 1994: We All Had Some O.J. [Video]

I remember June 17, 1994, like it was yesterday.

I lived in Gaylord, and it was 97 degrees that Friday. I stayed the night in an air conditioned hotel room and watched the whole thing on TV like everyone else did. I still can hear the police officer on TV say: "The Los Angeles Police Department, right now, is actively searching for Mr. (O.J.)

Where Was Craig Russell Last Week?

So, you might ask: Where was Craig Russell last week?

He was in the hospital, that's where!

He, or I, had an infected foot with a diabetic foot ulcer.

Va Va Voom! Loni Anderson Is Still Hot! [Video]

There was a "WKRP in Cincinnati" reunion Wednesday at The Paley Center for Media in Los Angeles.

And Loni Anderson was there. So were a few of the others from the cast, but I can't really remember their names at this point.

Her character, Jennifer Marlowe, however, was front and center.

June 6, 1944: D-Day; 70 Years Ago Today

It's not my generation. My generation was the Falkland Islands.

OK, I'm kidding.

But seriously, World War II was my grandparents' war. All four of mine have passed, but they were the fighters and the workers. They rationed and saved. And when WWII ended, they had babies: My parents.
