Good riddance Jerry Falwell

Posted by: Jambo / 10:57 PM

Never speak ill of the dead? Screw that. We'd all have been far better off had he never entered the public scene. The man did as much as anyone in my lifetime to spread hate and intolerance in this country. His passion for censorship was never more visible than in this famous confrontation with Mr. Carlson:

That's the best you can do for me Jambo? 10 seconds of the most beautiful creature in the universe? Ten lousy seconds? Where are your priorities my friend?

Just for you Jerjo:

I know it just fits my world view and plays to my preconceptions, but I think that's a beautiful moment -- one of the great moments in sit-com history.

I haven't been able to find it on Youtube but the final scene of the show is great too. Mr. Carlson's old friend who runs the Red Wrigglers Worm ads comes to see him and is ashamed that he has to pull his ads since he can't afford a boycott. Carlson forgives him and says, "People who listen to rock n roll? They don't buy a lot of worms." Carlson later tells off the reverend saying "If this whole thing has accomplished anything other than making a nice old man feel like a coward I'm damned if I know what it is." Of course the whole episode played straight to my prejudices as well but it sure was a nice feeling to want to stand up and cheer for the Big Guy. It makes my all time best sit com episode list, too.

Where've you guys been lately - and where's Hammer? He hasn't posted for awhile.

I think we are both fighting a bit of blogger burnout and I know that Hammer has been swamped with real life work. We're not going away but I don't know that we'll get new stuff up every day like we used to. I hope to not let too many days pass without posting something, tho. And of course as the election cycle moves along I'm sure we'll get back on track.

By the way, I think I posted a lengthy response to a comment of yours a few weeks back but might have done so long enough after your post that you might have missed it.

It's nice to know that someone notices when we slack off a bit so maybe that will provide some incentive as well.

I'll check it out.
I read another 'blog that has a sidebar which shows where recent comments have been posted - it makes having an ongoing conversation easier. Don't know if you can do that on, but thought I'd put it out there.
