Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Remembering Betty White, TV Icon Who Almost Had Her Milestone

Posted 01-02-2022 at 07:45 PM by case44


And we were all pulling for her to reach 100 years of age.

She didn't quite make it, folks.

So with that, here I am spending the opening days of 2022 talking with you about one of the last things that happened in 2021. Betty White, TV icon and ever-present actress who had one of the longest careers in recent memory, passed away just eighteen days short of turning 100 years old. Before venturing into television in the 1950s, Betty had done some old radio shows, including "The Great Gildersleeve". During her time on TV, she did mostly guest-star appearances and appeared in numerous game shows as a panelist. In my honest opinion, I think she logged more time on network or syndicated game shows than almost any actor or actress. That's staying power. She did star in two very big TV series, "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" and "The Golden Girls", propelling both shows to huge success. In addition, it didn't hurt that she had two separate TV series named "The Betty White Show". Neither of those became big hits, but she had enough star presence. I think, in the end, she was known more for just her presence on the air, as I've never known anyone to dislike her in any way. She tended to light up a room no matter what show she was on, good or bad.

Betty White was going to go on forever. We all thought that. Now, she's suddenly gone from us on Earth, but on the tube, she will live on forever. It seems like, you name it, she's been on it. Rest in peace, TV friend. You've had a heck of a life.
