I found out about his passing from a Facebook post of a former Marine friend of mine. He said (and I did not know) that he was a gun guy and a supporter of our troops. He was on his way to a charity to help the hurricane victims in the Philippines when he died
But a sickening meme has appeared regarding his death. It is pretty much “screw him, he was just another Hollywood celebrity. What about (insert somebody or group here)?”
You know damnable well that I have no problems for those whose lifestyles are stupid and conductive to early passing to do so. But Paul Walker was not one of them but one of us.
And even if was not a part of our culture, he was trying to do the right thing when he died. A self centered Hollywood celebrate might just have called his accountant, have check issued and then have his PR person issue press release telling the world how much he cared for the little people.
So, those of you being all tactical hipster, stop being ricks.
Ps: still on a tablet…hare it.
Laptop is still playing Obamacare.com. Goes to the doctor on Monday so hopefully I will be back on Tuesday.
I am going to do the Thanksgiving Post a little different. Perhaps one of the funniest bits I have ever seen in a TV Comedy: The Turkeys Away episode originally aired in October 30th, 1978 and I think it is the most memorable for its twisted yet innocent humor.
Besides the video below, click on the link and enjoy the writers telling the story of that particular show and other tidbits….and Happy Thanksgivings!
TV Guide named it as the fortieth best television episode of all time. On lists of favorite sitcoms, or favorite holiday episodes, it invariably ranks even higher. WKRP in Cincinnati’s seventh episode, “Turkeys Away” begins as a wholesome, almost bland, Thanksgiving show. Around the midpoint, though, the standard-issue sitcom setup – Mr. Carlson (Gordon Jump), orchestrates a secret radio station promotion – takes a spectacularly morbid and off-color left turn, one that sets up punchline after hilarious punchline.
