This date in “Twilight Zone” history

On Dec. 11, 1959, an episode called "And When The Sky Was Opened" first aired.

Some early astronauts come back from a flight and then, one by one, begin vanishing -- along with any record of their mission.

It's an OK episode. But the thing I want to call to your attention is the fake front page below.

I like a few details, including the top-of-the page reference to the school board story. If a real reporter had written that story, it's a good bet that he or she would have groused about the play it got.

"Spacemen -- who cares? Our readers want to know about school bonds."
