Hey, kid! Ditch the arts!

So what is necktie boy thinking?

A) “Gee, I don't know. I'm going to need my college deferment in a few years. And these boys seem like cannon fodder to me.” B) “Why am I the only one wearing glasses?” C) “This kid putting on his sneakers better pay attention when Texas Western waxes Kentucky in a few years. A change is coming.” D) “I might want to hire some of these boys one day.” E) “Why isn't this kid sitting on the steps while putting on his sneakers?” F) Other.     

50 years ago today

On Nov. 3, 1961, a memorable episode of “The Twilight Zone” aired for the first time. Called “It's a Good Life,” it told the story of 6-year-old Anthony Fremont. He possessed diabolical supernatural powers.

Anthony could read minds. And if he didn't like what you were thinking, well, you had to hope that didn't happen.

Looks like actor Billy Mumy got a haircut in the middle of the show's shooting schedule. 

Just wondering

Was the Mantle/Maris home run chase on your radar 50 years ago?
