Two Surprising Takeaways From The ABC-TV Series, "The Mod Squad"

Posted 08-30-2022 at 05:59 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

How about I take you down Memory Lane once again? Let's do that.

You may remember an old TV series on ABC-TV back in the late 1960s and early '70s about three counterculture outcasts who'd been previously convicted of crimes but were given a second chance as undercover cops by a sympathetic police captain. It also had what I consider one of the greatest theme tracks of all time. That series was, "The Mod Squad". It made its debut in 1968, and despite ABC's...

I've Got Something Trying To Make It Into My Mind

Posted 08-29-2022 at 07:50 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Ever have the problem where you think you have a blog post idea one hour, and in the next one, it's gone?

Well, that's apparently happening now. Yes, I had my chance to actually get something in earlier, but there were other things which needed to get done. Sometimes, things come across my mind, and then I change that same mind when I end up not feeling like writing it. Doesn't mean that I won't write it at all; it could just be that now's not the time.

We were just getting into summer. Now, school is already starting for the kiddos out there where you are, and even where you aren't.

Labor Day is fast approaching, and with that comes the start of yet another college football season. I'll be cheering on my Texas Longhorns, who have got to recover from an embarrassing 5-7 campaign last year with then-first-year head coach Steve Sarkisian. The Longhorn faithful are not a patient bunch, and I just know that, at...

When your writer needs a drink and he has no access to his water bottle (which, likely, is in my car), all he's got to do is stop by a water fountain for a swig.

But there are conditions....

That's right, ladies and gentlemen. There must be conditions for me to drink out of a water fountain. You see, the stream which emerges from the vertical spout has to go higher than that guard next to it. If it's lower than the guard, then I won't drink from that...
