Forrest Gump and Bubba i liked when Lieutenant Dan Taylor (Gary Sinise) told Benjamin Buford "Bubba" Blue (Mykelti Williamson), "you better tuck that lip in," as a joke so he wouldn't get shot. . .

Franklin Half Dollar From 1948 through 1963, some 510 million American half dollars bearing the portrait of Benjamin Franklin were minted. They were replaced by Kennedy half dollars in 1964. I've never understood why half dollars fell out of favor as an everyday currency. To me they seem at least as practical as quarters.

First Hispanic US Supreme Court Judge NOT Sotomayor Benjamin Nathan Cardozo May 24, 1870–July 9, 1938 Cardozo family tradition held that their ancestors were Marranos from Portugal. "Cardoso", "Seixas" and "Mendes" are common Portuguese surnames. Certain Hispanic organizations do not consider those of Portuguese descent to be Hispanic. Both the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials and the Hispanic National Bar Association believe that Sonia Sotomayor, if confirmed, will be the first Hispanic justice.

Quark - Failed 1978 Sci-Fi Sitcom In 1978, as a mid-season replacement series, NBC presented Quark. It was a science-fiction comedy that was supposed to be a parody of Star Trek. Set in the year 2226, Richard Benjamin starred in the lead role as Adam Quark, the commander of an interplanetary garbage scow for the United Galaxy Sanitation Patrol. (Really!) Other cast members included comely blonde twins Tricia and Cyb Barnstable who played Betty I and Betty II (the latter was a clone of the former), and Richard Kelton as Ficus--a talkative but boring human-like plant. How could this show possibly fail? A pilot episode plus eight others aired before the show was yanked after the April 14, 1978 broadcast. Here's the opening montage. Believe it or not, the complete series is available on DVD.

Our Gang - Darla Hood Darla Hood was the most famous of the Our Gang girls. Born in Oklahoma in 1931, Darla began auditioning for roles at age three. At age four she joined the Our Gang troupe, debuting in 'Our Gang Follies of 1936.' Darla's Oklahoma twang is noticeable in some of her early films. Darla's stint with the Our Gang series came during its heyday. Her character was both wholesome and coquettish. Alfalfa, Waldo, and Butch all vied for the pretty brunette's affections. She made the transition from the Hal Roach era of Our Gang to the MGM era. Her last Our Gang appearance came at age 11 in 'Benjamin Franklin Jr.' in 1943. Darla became a regular member of The Ken Murray Show during the 1950-51 TV season. She later reprised her Darla role in a spoof on a 1962 episode of The Jack Benny Program. (Jack played Alfalfa.) During the 1960s and 1970s she attended numerous cast reunions where she was a great favorite of young and old fans. In 1979 Darla was busy planning a 1980 Our Gang reunion when she entered the hospital for a minor surgical procedure. She contracted hepatitis--likely from a tainted blood transfusion--and died suddenly. She was just 47 years old.

Eddie Grant Memorial Resurfaces Eddie Grant was a Harvard-educated ballplayer who played for four MLB teams between 1906 and 1915. After his baseball career ended, Grant enlisted in the army during the First World War at age 34. He rose to the rank of captain. On October 5, 1918, a few weeks before the war ended, Grant was killed by enemy shell fire in the Argonne Forest. On Memorial Day 1921, the New York Giants, Grant's final MLB team, unveiled an enormous brass plaque that was handsomely mounted on a five-foot granite marker that sat in the deepest part of the Polo Grounds underneath the home team's clubhouse. From the memorial's dedication until the Giants abandoned New York and the Polo Grounds in 1957, a solemn wreath-laying ceremony was held at the Grant monument every year, usually between games of a Memorial Day doubleheader. At the conclusion of the final game played at the Polo Grounds on September 29, 1957, souvenir hunters mobbed the field. The New York Times reported that three teenagers were seen prying the bronze plaque off the monument. Rumors that the police ultimately recovered the plaque were never verified, and its whereabouts remained a mystery for nearly 42 years. In late July 1999, the Eddie Grant Memorial plaque was discovered in the attic of a home in Ho-Ho-Kus Township, NJ. It had been formerly owned by Lena and Gaetano Bucca. The new home owners, Brian and Deborah Lamb, came across the plaque carefully wrapped in a blanket and hidden under a trap door in the attic. Brian Lamb contacted Baseball Reliquary Board member, Wendy Brougalman, a former business associate, with news of the discovery. How did the 100-pound plaque end up in a New Jersey attic? The Lambs purchased the home from the Bucca family after the death of Lena Bucca in 1998. Gaetano Bucca, a former New York City police officer, died in 1974. Gaetano, who retired from the force in January 1958 and subsequently moved with his family to New Jersey, served in the city's 32nd precinct, an area of jurisdiction encompassing the Polo Grounds. It is assumed that that Officer Bucca and a few allies had arranged to take the plaque with the intention of delivering it to the Eddie Grant American Legion Post 1225 in the Bronx. The plaque never made it there. Benjamin Bucca, Gaetano's only surviving son and a respected probate attorney, had no knowledge at all of the 100-pound plaque situated just above his head in his former bedroom. "You know, I never felt comfortable in that bedroom," he said. "Now I know why! That thing could have fallen on my head in the middle of the night and flattened me. My Pop was always a bit of a mystery, but this . . . This is . . . What the hell was he thinking about?'"
