“Hey kids ... what time is it? It’s Howdy Doody time!” The year was 1947 and the peanut gallery surrounded Buffalo Bob Smith, Phineus T. Bluster, Indian Princess Summer-Fall-Winter-Spring, Judy, Flubadub and a clown who didn’t talk named, Clarabell. The clown could make noise with a horn, like Harpo Marx, and could spray seltzer water. But that was it. Clarabell was Bob Keeshan in disguise, a man who was born on this day in 1927.
Two years later, Clarabell got restless. He wanted to talk. So, despite what Buffalo Bob and an NBC players contract said, Clarabell was determined to talk -- even silently. As relations between the clown and the star of the show (Buffalo Bob, not Howdy) got even more tense, Clarabell mouthed the words “Bye Kids” at the close of a Howdy Doody show and was fired on the spot.
Clarabell was out of a job until getting the big payback in 1955. Clarabell -- now back to being Bob Keeshan -- signed on with CBS for the only network children’s show to be broadcast on a daily basis. That show, Captain Kangaroo, became an integral part of American culture for two decades. Keeshan introduced us to Grandfather Clock, Mr. Green Jeans, Bunny Rabbit, Mr. Moose and many other characters who taught kids a lesson. The phrase, “And be sure to say ‘please’ ... and ‘thank you’!” was just one of many. Captain Kangaroo became the model for truly excellent children’s television which led the way to Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, Sesame Street and others.
Day 849. And we in the peanut gallery saute you. Clarabell, one of those favorites that were once limited and then returned. Lesson learned. Any... (and a puppet shall lead them) Day.. Now.
Irrespective of the maximum bandwidth and speeds permitted by law, any person who drives the policy of an internet vehicle on any e-highway recklessly or at a speed or in a manner so as to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person shall be guilty of reckless site e-driving.
(Code 1950, § 46-208; 1958, c. 541, § 46.1-189; 1983, c. 380; 1989, c. 727.)Day 852. And that's points on your license. 852 days worth of points. Any... (life, limits, and the pursuit of favorites) Day.. Now.
A person shall be guilty of reckless driving who drives an internet vehicle or web site when it is so loaded, or when there are in the front seat such number of persons or misguided limits, as to obstruct the view of the driver to the front or sides of user needs or to interfere with the driver's control over the driving mechanism of the site, site code and site user's favorites.
Day 855. Reckless but not wreckless. Any... ("Dont make me come back there, kids! Cut it out... or we'll turn around *right* now!") Day.. Now.
WHEN, in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another; and to assume, among the Powers Of The Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the Causes which impel them to the Separation.
We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Favorite are created equal, that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these Rights, Admins are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Moderation becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Policy of Unlimited Favorites, laying its foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such Form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Admin policy long established, should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that Mankind are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Policy, and to provide new Guards for their future Security.
Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Favorites; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Site Policy. The History of the present CBS adminitration is a History of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these Posters. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.Day 856. We hold these Truths to be self-evident. Any... (Pursuit of Happiness) Day.. Now.
Walter was a really nice guy. He didn’t patent his invention because he didn’t want to put the many seamstresses of the time out of work. Elias didn’t care about such social issues. So he went ahead and patented the sewing machine.
Mr. Howe, however, ran into a lot of legal entanglements trying to get his patent rights because of those who tried to infringe on them, such as Isaac Singer. Maybe you know the name. In the long run, Elias Howe won; earning over two million dollars in royalties for his non-invention.
The question is, if Elias Howe hadn’t been born on this day in <span style="color: #b79300;">1819, what would we be sewing with?Day 861. "Elias didn’t care about such social issues." Must be related to CBS. Any... ( Change the bobbin ) Day.. Now.
A person shall be guilty of reckless driving who drives an internet vehicle on the superhighways in the Commonwealth (i) at a speed of twenty miles per hour or more in excess of the applicable maximum speed limit or (ii) in excess of eighty miles per hour regardless of the applicable maximum speed limit.
Day 862. No risk of this at CBS. Isn't there a minimum speed required? Any... (methamphetamine) Day.. Now.
