    gabriel:: its a given that O will be rich from this job for the rest of his life…please!! rich enough to be charitable…the ultimate truth to check out is what did he give for charity as a per centage of income when he was a community organizer….

    @DB: Kimberly has the best legs in show business! And, I’m not usually a Leg Man.

    @dana: F-gabriel and the others like him. Before I pass on this advice to you, ‘I’ have to wise-up myself: Don’t communicate with people who just piss you off. Ignoring them is best. You’re never going to change them and they will never change the way you think. Don’t be intimidated. It’s obvious that these angry people really have NOTHING to say so they trash your ideas.

    @Coffee Steve: I loved watching Dick Clark when “Bandstand” went national and aired at 4:30pm on WABC-TV CHannel 7 in NY. I watched it after school every day (after homework, of course).

    While still a youngster, I set-up a table in my room similar to the “Bandstand” set. Remember that half-circle logo with AMERICAN BANDSTAND written on the curved part? It was authentic as I could get it.
    Funny…since I had created and produced a political talk show locally, I went for the “Charlie Rose”-look. Black background, round wooden table for host and guest(s).

    I occasionally watched “Bandstand” when it went weekly on Saturdays. But, as the ’70s approached, I liked “Soul Train” better.

    He was a great game show host. I enjoyed watching “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Years Eve” show, but I hated the West Coast “live” act shows that were likely taped months in advance.

    In all honesty, the one show that I DIDN’T enjoy was the Blooper show with Ed McMahon. To me, it was like “Hee Haw.” Programming for the lowest common denominator. It the novelty had worn off, it didn’t take a genius to figure out that these so-called professional and amateur at-home “bloopers,” were created for the show.

    To yet another of my heroes from TV’s earliest days. Dick Clark, RIP.
