  • Earl Hamner Jr. Creator of "Waltons" TV Show, Dies at Age 92

    Associated Press ^ | 3-25-16 | John C. Rodgers
    Earl Hamner Jr., the versatile and prolific writer who drew upon his Depression-era upbringing in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia to create one of television's most beloved family shows, "The Waltons," has died at age 92. Hamner's friend Ray Castro Jr., who produced a documentary about Hamner, says the writer died Thursday in Los Angeles and had recently been battling pneumonia. Although best remembered for "The Waltons," which aired for nine seasons and won more than a dozen Emmys, that show barely scratched the surface of Hamner's literary accomplishments. He was a best-selling novelist ("Spencer's Mountain"), the author of...

    Veteran TV and film actor, Jason Wingreen, has passed away at the age of 95. The Hollywood Reporter confirms Wingreen died on December 25, 2016, at his Los Angeles home. The actor voiced the character of Boba Fett in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, although he was not credited for the role. Wingreen might be most recognized for his role as Archie’s bartender, Harry Snowden, on the CBS sitcom All in the Family. He continued in the role on the spin-off, Archie Bunker’s Place, until CBS cancelled it after four seasons. Between 1987 and 1991, Wingreen also had a...

    The illuminating, exoterical, astronomical George Clayton Johnson has died. The genius science-fiction writer behind so much of what we’ve all watched and enjoyed has passed on to his next adventure. George Clayton Johnson wrote the very first episode of Star Trek, The Man Trap; he wrote eight original Twilight Zone episodes for series creator Rod Serling including "Nothing in the Dark", "Kick the Can", "A Game of Pool", and "A Penny for Your Thoughts". In 1960, while he was one of the proprietors of Cafe Frankenstein (seen as sort of a "den of iniquity" by the uptight) in Laguna Beach,...

If this sounds a bit like the Tom Cruise movie called "Minority Report," or the CBS drama "Person of Interest," it is. But where "Minority Report" author Philip K.

    If there is anyone out there who still doubts US president-elect Barack Obama's roots, who still wonders if his father was a Kenyan, still questions his love for the land of his ancestors, January 20 will be the answer. For at that defining moment, after Mr Obama takes the oath office to lead the world superpower, Kenyan musicians will be there to entertain him. And Kenyans will be the most beholden since the new US President has roots at Kogelo in Nyanza - now a vibrant village that has been awakened from slumber by the Obama magic. Kenya's Obama fans...

    The attenuated election season has come to a close. To me it feels as if weve been unwittingly cast in a surreal science fiction flick. - A presidential hopeful runs on a brothers keeper slogan, while his own brother lives in a Kenya shack and his auntie abides in a Boston slum. - The right to choose extends to denying even a Band-Aid for a baby brutalized by a botched abortion, while compassion gets redefined as a tax rebate in every pot. - A citizen plumber gets the Roto-Rooter treatment, while VIP medical records are quarantined and birth certificates are...

    I thought this was fitting to post, being that it is Halloween and that this is a truly frightening election... I posted it under 'chat, humor, tv, weird'. Hope this was the correct place? Anyway, each of these episodes revolve around a central figure who had persuaded people that he was a "Messiah" of sorts. But as it turned out in the end, the folks couldn't have been more wrong. Of course, by then, it was too late. Happy Halloween everyone! Hope you are able to access these. They really do get the point across in a different/entertaining sort of...

    Dottie Zimmerman is a 63-year-old mother of three, an award-winning religion teacher at a Toledo Catholic school, a former Ursuline nun, and a director of the Children's Theatre Workshop. For the last five years, Mrs. Zimmerman also says she has been "channeling" Padre Pio, letting the dead Italian Catholic saint mystically speak through her. It is a "gift," she said, and although she never asked for it she believes she must use it to help others, especially children. Last month, Mrs. Zimmerman channeled the saint during a meeting of the Toledo Lightworkers Co-op, a group of people who explore alternative...
