A commenter on another site left a remark in passing about "bad hospital dramas." Unbidden, the first thought that flashed to mind was, "I've given little thought to bad hospital dramas since Jessie was accused of murder on General Hospital."

This thought was followed by another that left me stunned and confused: where the heck did that come from? And I really do not want to see any mathematical equations relating to the concept!

Mostly unrelated, but kind of: did you know there are actually people on this planet who are not conversant with the phrase, "pork chops and applesauce?" [Or more precisely, as observant readers have noted: "pork chopsh and appleshaush."] They're rather defensive about it, too -- as some people are wont to be when they know they don't know something they should know. (Hmmm... why does President Bush leap to mind....)

Don't mind me. I'll toddle off quietly now into doddering geezerhood, dementedly wondering whether the next Secret Square will be Wally Cox or Charlie Weaver....

"...they should know?"

Hurm. I'm only conversant with "pork chops and appleshaush." Time to Google.

Pork chopsh and appleshaush.

Ooo. Is this overwhelming conversancy I am feeling?

Geezerhood . . .


The Secret Square actually is Paul Winchell, inventor of the artificial heart.

Re: Geezerhood . . .
I was quite saddened at Paul Winchell's passing some months back, but amused to no end to learn that the artificial heart was co-invented by none other than that double-dealing do-badder, Dick Dastardly!

Re: Geezerhood . . .
Something so intriguing about a career that spans such extremes.

To be the voice of Dick Dastardly . . . not only a decent resume spicer-upper, but the chance to be a villain that kids could understand and despise with a clear conscience. . . overt, obvious. Nowadays we must try to understand the origins of evil . . . so tedious.
