A gang from Newark’s South Side is hiding Vinnie Martine’s body in a restaurant freezer. Tony’s mad because Anthony Jr. got caught pranking another mobster. And a boss who’s trying to reform gets his mansion sprayed with bullets.

Remember that episode of The Sopranos? If you do, your memory’s playing tricks on you, because all these things happened on a 1979 episode of The Rockford Files — written by Sopranos creator David Chase.

Leave it to Beaver 1958 (second season)
Ward reads a note from Beaver’s principal, Mrs. Rayburn. If you freeze-frame the note it says:

Mr. Ward Cleaver
485 Mapleton Drive
Mayfield, State

My Dear Mr. Cleaver:

This paragraph has absolutely nothing to do with anything.
It is here merely to fill up space. Still, it is words,
rather than repeated letters, since the latter might not
give the proper appearance, namely, that of an actual note.

For that matter, all of this is nonsense, and the only
part of this that is to be read is the last paragraph,
which part is the inspired creation of the producers of
this very fine series.

Another paragraph of stuff. Now is the time for all good
men to come to the aid of their party. The quick brown
fox jumps over the lazy dog. My typing is lousy, but the
typewriter isn’t so hot either. After all, why should I
take the blame for these mechanical imperfections, with
which all of us must contend. Lew Burdette just hit a
home run and Milwaukee leads seven to one in the series.
This is the last line of the filler material of the note.
No, my mistake, that was only the next to last. This is last.

I hope you can find a suitable explanation for Theodore’s
unusual conduct.

Yours truly,
Cornelia Rayburn

Time for my annual Due South marathon!!
God, I love this show. I liked Vecchio, but Paul Gross and CKR have such great chemistry. Also, CKR rocked his shoulder holster.

The Atlanta History Center is honored to be asked to restore and preserve The Cyclorama of the Battle of Atlanta painting and the steam locomotive Texas. These unique, historic artifacts need specific expertise to ensure their ongoing care for generations to come. As stewards of Atlanta’s…

Pretty big news for the Cyclorama. Ripples will be felt in scholastic field trip planning circles for months. ;)

This is actually open again and has been for about a year now! My parents had their first date here on Halloween to see The Muppet’s and then came out of the theater to remember it was Halloween because my dad’s car got egged.

A happy update for an old post of mine.
