Gratuitous Friday Morning Small Bone Tossing

Too much time and too little to do. Wait. Strike that. Reverse it. Not much posting, I'm afraid, as I have a full plate of commitments this morning. (In fact, full to overflowing - I forgot all about a board meeting at school I was supposed to attend until it was too late.) I should have some time later on this afternoon.

In the meantime, let me just say that I did not bother to watch Dubya's speech last night, but if I can throw in my two cents on the issue of rebuilding New Orleans: the old Buck Rogers show was set primarily in "New Chicago". However, I recall that in one episode Buck had to travel down to "New New Orleans." The city was this big, sleek, glass/steel combination under a big, clear dome and set on giant piers out over the water. I think that any rebuild effort should adopt that as its model.

Just saying.

Yip at you later.

UPDATE: Oh, I forgot to mention that of course Wilma Deering should be appointed Mayor for Life.

Mmmm. Ardala...

Ah, yes. Princess Ardala, aka Pamela Hensley. Definitely a Flash in the Pan Babe of the Late Seventies/Early Eighties. She was ultra-hot on "Buck Rogers," and after that I'm surprised her picture didn't show up on the side of a milk carton.

She appeared in Matt Houston and married the show's producer (last name Vincent). Her last credited acting work according to IMDB was in 1983. However, she wrote a cookbook in 2004 called the Jewish-Sicilian Cookbook (search Pamela Hensley Vincent at Amazon).

Go check out the SF babe category at my blog for the long-running back-and-forth on the Deering vs. Ardala feud between Rob and me.

Col. Wilma Deering vs. Princess Ardala. No contest. Ardala was sexy evil, but at the time of the show I was still a Boy Scout (even though I was in 652, which kind of lowered the national standard.) Erin Grey was then, and remains, so damnably doable that it hurts me yarbles to think of her. Even if she does commercials using the word "sell-you-leet."
