Another sign of the passing of an age.
Merv certainly left his mark on Americana.
Including Art Linkletter, who is still up and around.
Ergo, *we* are out of context, not the "journalist".
And they never did catch Merv for being “The Elevator Killer”:
Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr: You! You’re the elevator killer! Merv Griffin!
Merv Griffin: Yeah.
Dr. Michael Hfuhruhurr: Why?
Merv Griffin: I don’t know. I’ve always just loved to kill. I really enjoyed it. But then I got famous, and - it’s just too hard for me. And so many witnesses. I mean, *everybody* recognized me. I couldn’t even work anymore. I’d hear, “Who’s that lurking over there? Isn’t that Merv Griffin?” So I came to Europe to kill. And it’s really worked out very well for me.
Try not to miss it myself. Last two weeks has been "Celebrity Jeopardy". Funny stuff. About 1 out of 3 of the "celebritys" have a brain and can answer a question. Can't help but bring back memories of SNL with the "celebrity" impersonators. Sean Connery and his "Your mother, Trebeck!" was great stuff.
One of the MANY reasons I love Art:
Beloved former TV host and now senior citizens’ spokesman Art Linkletter has decided to go toe-to-toe with the AARP on politics and policy. Mr. Linkletter, the former host of “Kids Say the Darnedest Things” and current National
Chairman of the United Seniors Association (USA), made his views on the AARP known Monday in an interview on Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”
During the interview, the 93-year-old conservative Linkletter touted the importance of Social Security reform with personal retirement accounts and went on to call the
AARP, which opposes President Bush’s reform plan, “the largest liberal lobbying group in Washington.”
HUMAN EVENTS has learned USA has no intention of backing down from Linkletter’s criticism of the AARP. In fact, the coming issue of USA Next, a quarterly publication by USA and a special supplement to HUMAN EVENTS, takes on the AARP directly.
In addition, USA CEO Charlie Jarvis will appear on Fox News’ “O’Reilly Factor” on Thursday, February 10, to launch the “USA Next Stop Scaring Seniors NOW!” — a campaign
focusing on the AARP and the alleged damage it has done and continues to do to America.
For seniors not wanting to join AARP:
Thank you for the link.
LOL!! Beat me to it.
That was one of the BEST episodes ever! Thanks for the memory.
Prayers fora great American ... ping
Thanks for the ping. He is truly one of the white hats. So long Merv, thanks for everything.
