Hard to believe that the remote control has been around for 50 years now! When I was a kid, our remote control was me standing next to the TV turning the dial while my dad sat in his recliner and said; "No, no, no, no, wait - go back......... keep going, no, no, STOP! I'll watch M.A.S.H.
I don't think we had a remote until we got cable in 1980.

I found this awesome book at Newbury Comics this weekend, and I haven't been able to put it down yet! As a huge fan on 1950's horror comics, this is chock-full of classic covers and stories from the days of the red scare. It also includes a bonus DVD featuring "Confidential File," a 25-minute TV show from 1955, about the corrupting influence of these ghastly comic books on our nation's youth.

Making money was his "thang", now, it’s being arrested.
Jonathan Huntley turned himself in to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police, after a t-shirt he left, with his picture on it, at a home he robbed two days earlier, was posted all over the Internet.The victim was at his Dinglewood Avenue home at the time of the March 29th robbery hiding room to room, and found Huntley’s incriminating t-shirt after Huntley and another suspect, who is still at large, had left the scene.
It's shaping up to be a grand Summer!
