Lincoln Memorial - Robert E Lee Profile Ever since the dedication of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC in 1922, rumors have persisted that a likeness of the great Confederate general Robert E. Lee's profile was sneakily carved into Abe's wavy locks of hair. Those who agree point out what appears to be a nose protruding from the back of Lincoln's head, and noticeable facial features including a familiar Lee-like beard. Moreover, Lee's face would be looking directly toward his pre-Civil War home in Arlington, VA. The idea that sculptor Daniel Chester French might have secretly been a Confederate sympathizer is odd. French was born in New Hampshire in 1850 and was steeped in New England Yankeedom from birth onward. When he began work on the Memorial in 1914, there were still distinct regional animosities in the old northern and southern states regarding the Civil War, so it's difficult to fathom French being an admirer of Lee. The National Parks Service completely dismisses the idea of Lee's profile in the Memorial as merely an urban myth. Still, after seeing the angle of this photo, I'm not so sure I buy the NPS' denial...

Richard Dawson 1932-2012 It has been reported that Richard Dawson died on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at the UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. According to his son Gary, Dawson succumbed to complications related to esophageal cancer. He was 79. Dawson was the famed host of ABC's Family Feud from its inception 1976 to 1985. He was also a regular (and probably the best) panelist on CBS' Match Game from 1973 to 1978. He played Corporal Peter Newkirk on Hogan's Heroes for the entire run of that sitcom (1965 to 1971).

Cynthia Lynn Following the recent passing of Richard Dawson, I was asked on another post how many of the Hogan's Heroes cast are still alive. Here's one: Cynthia Lynn, who played the very lovely Fraulein Helga, the first of Colonel Klink's two secretaries, in the first season of the sitcom. Born in Latvia in 1936, she is still with us today at age 75.

Kenneth Washington Kenneth Washington is another Hogan's Heroes cast member who is still alive. Washington, now 65, played Corporal Richard Baker in the final season of Hogan's Heroes (1970-71). He effectively replaced Ivan Dixon (Sergeant James Kinchloe) who had left the cast after the show's fifth season. Baker assumed Kinchloe's role as the heroes' radio operator. During the show, no explanation was ever offered as to what happened to Kinchloe or how Baker became part of the heroes. That's kind of odd when Stalag 13 was supposedly an escape-proof POW camp! Perhaps CBS hoped nobody would notice the change!

Mike Wallace Whats My Line Controversy - 1957 On the May 26, 1957 episode of the popular panel show What's My Line?, Sammy Davis, Jr. was a last-minute mystery guest substitution for Mike Wallace. More than 20 years later, in his 1978 book about WML, executive producer Gil Fates explained what happened that night: WML panel moderator John Daly and Mike Wallace had professional differences that stemmed from the fact that they were both newsmen for ABC. Daly was ABC's newscaster while Wallace had recently been hired to do The Mike Wallace Interview program. Wallace had vaulted to fame with a series of sensationalistic and sleazy interviews on local TV in New York City--and Daly wanted nothing to do with him. Through a leak at ABC, Daly found out five hours before WML's live broadcast that Wallace was scheduled to be that night's mystery guest. He called Fates and told him he refused to do a show with Wallace. Daly was so popular and integral to WML that Fates had to find a replacement mystery guest. He quickly booked Sammy Davis, Jr., who was appearing at the Latin Quarter two blocks away from the WML studio. Everything seemingly went smoothly that night and a crisis had been averted. However, the next morning, the front page of the New York Journal-American carried this headline: "DALY BARS WALLACE: SWITCH IN GUESTS AVERTS HASSLE ON WHAT'S MY LINE?" Fates stated that there was no byline attached to the article, but its style was unmistakably that of WML panelist and gossip columnist Dorothy Kilgallen. The article ended by saying, "TV insiders claim that Daly was violently opposed to ABC's hiring of Wallace in the first place." Fates found out afterward that Dorothy had sensed something was amiss and she had "pried the details out of [WML staffer] Bob Bach." Fates went on to say, "Aside from the mechanics needed to operate the program, Daly didn't speak to Kilgallen for almost six months."
