Alan & Bertold, what an interesting time to be speechwriters for politicians, so many conflicts, so few making sense!

I absolutely could not stand that "song"!

Who can forget Mairsie Doats and Dozy Doats and Little Lambsy Divy!

Carl - perfect description!

Don't forget the plastic Lennon sisters!

i used to like those Skippy and Welch's grape jelly PBJ sandwiches.  We didnt have Wonderbread in my town, I think the bread was "Beuter's Buttercrust" from s local bakery.  Every once in a rare while I get nostalgic and make a PBJ on mynown sourdough. 

Also grew up on Lawrence Welk.  Ray Conniff was to jazzy for my family.  I never get nostalgic for him, gives me the creeps to think of him and his show.

I think we heard of Sansabelts but we weren't that stylish!  LOL!

The Ray Conniff singers were strangely "Stepford-like."

 If you ever wonder why the sixties cultural revolution was necessary, listen to a hit album by the Ray Conniff Singers, watch a Bob Hope variety special from NBC, try on a pair of Sansabelt polyester slacks, or choke down a Wonder Bread sandwich made with Welch’s grape jelly and Skippy creamy peanut butter spread. The hippies had a point.

Charming old coot, wasn't he? When asked why he didn't kick J. Edgar Hoover's ass the hell out of the FBI, he famously said I'd rather have him inside the tent pissing out that outside the tent pissing in.

I remember that one all too well, Bertold, and it's one among many reasons why I don't hold his memory very high, the Civil Rights Act notwithstanding.  There's also a matter of the following:

I don’t want loyalty. I want loyalty. I want him to kiss my ass in Macy’s window at high noon and tell me it smells like roses.
-- LBJ
