    I'm pretty sure I saw the actual broadcast. It was KTVU, if I recall. I lived there when the accident happened.

    Robin Hood and Don Duck

    serious as a heart attack. Don went on to become a car salesman. Could you imagine buying a car from Donald Duck?

    One of Richard "Night Stalker" Ramirez's Bay Area victims was named Peter Pan, I think.

    The only thing that could have been better is if his middle name was long or something. Poor kid.

    My 6th grade teacher was Mrs Ball and her husband's name was Harold. Legend was, their mailbox read, "The Harry Balls" but I cannot confirm that.

    Oh yes....one more....when my sister went to buy furniture at a local chain up here, the salesman's name on the card was "Harry Weiner"

    Can you imagine on the store paging system....."Harry Weiner to the home theatre section...."

    This is completely true!

    I had an Aunt Gay who married a gentleman named Dick. We weren’t allowed to laugh.

    Way back when, I played High School football. Two players names I remember, Benjamin Franklin and Benjamin Dover. I guess I have a thing for Benjamin's. Ben Dover went on to play for Perdue after HS, don''t think he lasted though.

    I heard of one Morris Lester who was a popular clown at kid's birthday parties.


    There was a Chrysler/Plymouth dealer in Columbus, OH named Bill Swad. We used to laugh every time one of his commercials would come on the TV.


    The HS I went to was all white until 1968. Then three black students enrolled, one of which was named Beamon Black. I'm not kidding.

    I used to work with a guy named Warren Assman.
    He'd always tell his clients, "I'm sure glad my mom & dad didn't name me Harry."
