Mr Wordsworth, Obsolete!!!
YOUTUBE ^ | 1950 | Rod Serling

Posted on 09/26/2012 4:16:48 PM PDT by EBH

Just out of general interest.

Short, quick, interesting...even the first name is shocking. LOL...

What they saw then and what we are so blind to now...

A friend found this on youtube... Rod Serling produced some terrific episodes of the Twilight Zone, but this one is particularly relevant in light of what is happening in this country... Listen to this...and when you do, pay special attention to Mr Wordsworth's first name... Play it back if you need to.

The opening in your video was cut out but here is the whole monologue: Obsolete

It is pretty powerful.

The best Twilight Zone episode ever.

Wordsworth hid his bible for 20 years because being found in possession of it was a crime punishable by death.

Romney was once a lot more common name than it is today. I went to school with a kid named Romney. Our gym teacher used to call him gramps because his (the teacher’s) grandfather was named Romney.

I also knew a guy named Tandy and my great grandmother’s name was Zella. Her old neighbor’s were Cyrus on one side and Floyd on the other.

My great grandmother’s name was Zella, too! It was short for Rosella.

Really!? It was the most memorable episode in my case. I assume the writer is long since deceased.

He was a voracious reader and blind without his glasses... He was always surrounded by books and had libertarian views. He would have been perfectly happy with just his books, like the character.
