Civil War News Trading Cards Civil War News was a set of 88 collectible trading cards issued in the early 1960s by Topps. The set featured the colorful artwork of Norman Saunders, as well as three other artists. The card set was characterized by vivid colors, graphic depictions of violence, death, and blood (card #21 'Painful Death' being a prime example) and exaggerations of warfare. On the reverse, each card contained a brief history of a campaign, battle, or person. The information was presented in newspaper-article fashion complete with a headline. The complete set of cards, including a checklist, was first printed for the American market in 1962 to coincide with the centennial of the Civil War. A similar series with the same artwork was later issued in Canada. A&BC produced the sets in England. The cards came five to a wax pack with a stick of bubble gum. Also included in each package was a facsimile of Confederate paper currency. The original selling price was a nickel per package. Topps later issued the cards in cellophane-wrapped strips.

Newton Minow - Vast Wasteland Speech Despite being just 35 years old, Newton Minow became the head of the Federal Communications Commission in 1961 shortly after John F. Kennedy became president. During the 1960 election campaign, Robert Kennedy and Minow had long passionate discussions about the state of television and its influence on America. Minow became a vocal critic of the medium. Famously, in a speech given to the National Association of Broadcasters convention on May 9, 1961, Minow was extremely critical of television broadcasters for not doing more, in Minow's view, to serve the public interest. His phrase, 'vast wasteland,' is remembered years afterward. Minow said, 'When television is good, nothing—-not the theater, not the magazines or newspapers-— nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse. I invite you each of you to sit down in front of your television set when your station goes on the air and stay there for a day without a book, without a magazine, without a newspaper, without a profit and loss sheet or a rating book to distract you. Keep your eyes glued to that set until the station signs off. I can assure you that what you will observe is a vast wasteland.' While some Americans applauded Minow's assault on commercial television as a welcome criticism of excessive violence and frivolity, others criticized it as an elitist, snobbish attack on programming that many viewers enjoyed. Still others viewed it as government interference with private enterprise. Related trivia: The S. S. Minnow of the 1964–1967 television show Gilligan's Island was sarcastically named for Minow to express the producers' displeasure with his assessment of the quality of television.

Pacman shape really from Green Hornet TV Show The game was developed primarily by a young Namco employee named Toru Iwatani. Although Iwatani has repeatedly stated that the character's shape was inspired by a pizza missing a slice,he admitted in a 1986 interview that this was a half-truth and the character design also came from simplifying and rounding out the Japanese character for mouth, kuchi. I say he was influenced unknowingly by The Green Hornet.
