  1. I’d forgotten that there was a time when a guest could speak for 45 seconds straight, and not be cut off, stepped on, or otherwise shouted down by his host.

  2. And people actually dressed and groomed as if they were serious adults, not overgrown adolescents.

  3. Darleen, I’m going to start a campaign to bring back the pipe during roundtable discussions. Pipes seem to add a certain gravitas to such gatherings.

    Another takeaway is the eloquence of the late Mr. Heston. Compare and contrast with the “stars” of today.

  4. Barry’s pastor:

    But it wasn’t enough to compare Obama with the founder of Judaism and the prophet of the Bible. Braxton added that Obama’s opponents were like the Biblical enemies of Moses, and that Obama would have to enter the battle because “sometimes enemies insist on doing it the hard way.”

    My dad used to smoke a pipe. I loved the smell and thought he was just so handsome with it.

  6. SF writer Jerry Pournelle likes to point out that when he was young, people called him a “n*****-lover” for arguing that the law should be color-blind. Now they call him a racist for saying the same thing.

  7. Charles Heston spoke and supported civl rights, but in the end was vilified by the left for supporting the 2nd Amendment.

  8. I had forgotten how civil panel shows used to be! Thanks, Darleen.

    And I see by Harry Belafonte’s body language that he should have stuck to singing calypso tunes.
