Fargo In 1987, Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy), a car salesman from Minneapolis, Minnesota with financial troubles, hatches a plan to end his financial difficulties. Through his mechanic, a former criminal named Shep Proudfoot, he enlists the service of two hit men, Gaear Grimsrud (Peter Stormare) and Carl Showalter (Steve Buscemi), at a bar in Fargo, North Dakota to kidnap his wife, Jean, who will be returned unharmed for a payment of $80,000. Jerry's secret plan is to tell his wealthy but antagonistic father-in-law, Wade, that the ransom is $1,000,000 intending to use the large difference to settle unspecified debts he has accrued and to invest in a business venture involving a parking lot...another black comedy that i thought was terrific! I also got a kick out of how much and how often the local police chief, heavily pregnant Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand)and her sweet husband, Norm, ate!!

Original Howdy Doody Puppet The Howdy Doody Show was one of the most iconic, popular, and enduring kids' programs ever. When it first aired in 1947, however, star marionette Howdy Doody looked far different than he did for most of the show's run. In this NBC publicity photo, Howdy is the puppet on the far right. Why the change? By 1948 the show had become so popular that merchandisers were clamoring to sell Howdy Doody paraphernalia. Macy's Department Store was especially eager to carry any and all Howdy Doody merchandise. This presented a major ownership problem: Buffalo Bob Smith had used the unmistakable Howdy Doody voice for years (beginning on the radio) and owned the rights to the character, but the puppet was created for TV by Frank Paris. No agreement could be worked out between Smith and Paris, so one day, about four hours before a live broadcast, Paris walked out of the NBC studio and took his puppet with him. The producers came up with a quick and brilliant gimmick to explain Howdy Doody's absence. Howdy had gone on a nation-wide road trip to campaign in the 1948 election! A large map of the USA showed viewers where Howdy had travelled during his absence from the show. Furthermore, it was announced that Howdy was undergoing plastic surgery to look better in his public appearances. This gave NBC's Velma Dawson plenty of time to create a totally different--but more familiar--Howdy Doody marionette that was used until the show ended in 1960. The new, more appealing Howdy Doody was an immediate hit. Apparently nobody missed Paris' original marionette too much. Smith himself declared it to be "the ugliest puppet imaginable."

Steffi Graf SI Cover 1989 Fraulein Forehand, the great Steffi Graf, was the cover subject of this issue of Sports Illustrated from 1989. Armed with a powerful inside-out forehand and a classic slice backhand, Graf dominated tennis for a little while--capturing a rare grand slam in 1988. Despite SI deeming Graf to be invincible, Monica Seles was on the rise and would soon rival the formidable German for supremacy in women's tennis.
