The National Police Gazette my grandmother loved all the old detective magazines . . i didn't realize at the time how risque they were! Here's a little history: "By far the most famous publication in the United States by this name was officially The National Police Gazette, although commonly referred to as simply the Police Gazette. It was founded in 1845 by George Wilkes, a journalist and sometime transcontinental railroad booster. The editor for most of the 19th century was Richard K. Fox, an immigrant from Ireland. Ostensibly devoted to matters of interest to the police, it was more often a tabloid-like publication, with lurid coverage of murders, Wild West outlaws, and sport."

Bobby Thomsons Home Run The single most dramatic moment in American sports history: Bobby Thomson's home run that won the 1951 National League pennant for the New York Giants. The Giants had trailed the Brooklyn Dodgers by 13.5 games in August, but they won 38 of their last 44 games to finish tied with the Dodgers at the end of the season. A three-game playoff was needed to settle matters. The Giants and Dodgers split the first two games. The Dodgers were leading the deciding game 4-1 heading into the bottom of the ninth. The Giants scored a run and had two men on base with one out. Bobby Thomson came to bat...

Yalta Conference 1945 The fate of postwar Europe was decided in 1945 at the Soviet Union resort city of Yalta on the Crimean Sea. With Nazi Germany on the verge of defeat, the leaders of the three major Allied combatant nations met to decide the fate of Germany and eastern Europe. Franklin Roosevelt is visibly ill and weary from the long journey. The British Empire is in decline and Winston Churchill can no longer assert any strength. By default Josef Stalin is given free rein to deal with matters in eastern Europe. The Cold War was about to begin.

Danny Almonte Scandal 2001 Remeber Danny Almonte? He was the 5-foot-8 star pitcher at the 2001 Little League World Series. Almonte struck out 62 of the 72 batters he faced. He threw a perfect game too. Danny was honored by New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Trouble was Danny was two years too old to be playing in the LLWS. Danny's father, Felipe, had falsified Danny's Dominican Republic birth certificate so it read 1989 instead of 1987. Because Danny towered over most of the other players in the tournament, accusations that he was too old were widespread. The truth was finally uncovered by two journalists from Sports Illustrated. Danny's Bronx, New York team had to forfeit their third-place standing. Felipe Almonte faced charges of filing a false document when he was deported back to the Dominican Republic. To make matters worse, there was no record of Danny attending school in the year his team went to the LLWS. He could not speak any English.

West Side Baptist Church Explosion This is one of the great collection of coincidences of all time--or is it something else? You decide. At 7:27 p.m. on Wednesday, March 1, 1950 in Beatrice, Nebraska, the West Side Baptist Church was reduced to smithereens when its gas furnace exploded. The explosion should have resulted in serious injury and/or fatalities to the 15 members of the church choir who normally met at 7:25 p.m. on Wednesdays for practice. However, by a fortuitous series of coincidences, no one was in the building when it exploded because every one of the 15 choir members was uncharacteristically late for one reason or another: The pastor (who actually lit the furnace but had returned home), his wife and daughter were late, as the daughter's dress was soiled and the wife was ironing another. A high-school sophomore was late due to difficulty with her geometry homework. Two sisters were late because their car would not start--and their alternate ride was the member with the geometry problem. Another member and her daughter were late as she had to attend to matters at her mother's house before arriving. Yet another member was delayed while writing an important letter. One member waited until the last possible minute before leaving due to the cold weather. Another member was taking care of his two young sons and did not realize until the last minute he was late. The pianist had planned to arrive 30 minutes early but fell asleep after dinner, which caused her and her mother (the choir's director) to be late. Two high-school students were late because one wanted to hear the end of a radio program; the other waited for her as they customarily went to practice together. Makes you think, doesn't it?

Youve Got Mail - Final Scene Ah, nothing beats a happy ending. This is the final scene of the 1998 Tom Hanks-Meg Ryan romantic film You've Got Mail. It's a modernized remake of a 1940 Jimmy Stewart-Margaret Sullivan film, The Shop Around The Corner, in which the lovers were pen pals. Set at a time when email was a novelty, Joe Fox (Hanks) and Kathleen Kelly (Ryan) begin a romance over the Internet without meeting one another. Complicating matters is that Fox's enormous bookstore chain is slowly pushing the small, beloved, family-owned bookstore founded by Kelly's late mother out of business. They despise each other, of course. An arranged meeting falls apart when Fox, who goes by the handle NY152, realizes his Internet love, whom he knows as Shopgirl, is Kelly. He does not divulge his identity to her, but the two slowly become dear friends once Kelly's shop is forced to close its doors. Fox sneakily and lovingly puts Kelly through the wringer before arranging another meeting at a New York City park. The final scene begins with Kelly awaiting the arrival of NY152 and realizing her Internet sweetheart is Fox.

Shirleys World - Failed TV Show Steve asked me to re-post this clip after it was lost when the website's server was changed. "Another example of an unsuccessful TV series featuring a major film star" is how Total Television described Shirley's World, a 30-minute dramedy that ran on ABC from September 15, 1971 to January 5, 1972. Shirley MacLaine played Shirley Logan, a globe-trotting photo-journalist employed by World Illustrated magazine. John Gregson played her editor. The show was extremely expensive to produce because it was actually filmed in exotic locales. Some critics have commented that the travel budget could have been more wisely spent on better scripts. It was produced in England by ITV and carried on ABC in the United States. Further complicating matters was MacLaine's dislike for producer Sheldon Leonard. Here's the opening montage.
