Merry Christmas Everybody I had never heard this song until a few years ago. The only Slade song I knew was Run, Run Away. I love Noddy Holder's voice. They always look like they're having a great time.

Steven Truscott Case 1959 Canada's most famous criminal case of the 20th century revolved around the rape and murder of 12-year-old Lynne Harper near Clinton, Ontario in 1959. A schoolmate, 14-year-old Steven Truscott, stood trial, was convicted of murder, and sentenced to hang. The sentence was eventually reduced to life imprisonment. With some doubts lingering over the accuracy of Truscott's conviction, and sympathy because of his age, Truscott was eventually paroled from prison in 1969. He lived for many years in Guelph, Ontario under an assumed name. In 2000 he shed his alias and began to publicly clamor for a new trial. Truscott's conviction was eventually overturned in 2007 because of what the Ontario Court of Appeals perceived as "a miscarriage of justice," though the court did not formally declare him innocent. Truscott was also awarded a $6.5 million settlement by the Province of Ontario. Is Truscott a murderer? Polls generally show Canadians think he is innocent by a 3:1 ratio. However the Harper family, usually forgotten by the media and the Truscott advocates, is convinced of Truscott's guilt. The victim's older brother has publicly called the payment to Truscott a travesty. The news of it seriously affected the health of Lynne's aged father. And little Lynne Harper remains 12 years old forever...

Death of Calvin Coolidge Jr This photo of president Calvin Coolidge's family was taken on June 30, 1924. Sixteen-year-old Calvin Junior is on the left. That same day young Calvin developed a blister on his foot while playing tennis with older brother John on the White House tennis court. The blister became infected, resulting in blood poisoning. There were no antibiotics in 1924. He died a week later on July 7. I often use this story as an example of the 'good old days' not being so good if one became ill.

The Oldest LOL CAT This antique postcard, published in 1905 is of historical importance as it appears to be the oldest LOLcat in existence. Perhaps soon, archeologists will discover an even older LOLcat on the walls of an Egyptian tomb... perhaps a cat with the caption, "I see what you did there!"

Shirley Temple - Laugh You Son of a Gun This is a clip from the 1934 Paramount film Little Miss Marker starring Shirley Temple. Shirley was newly under contract to 20th Century Fox in 1934, but she was loaned to Paramount for this film which turned out to be a big hit. It was a mistake 20CF would not make again. Despite Temple's winning presence, this is an adult film. The movie's plot revolves around bookie Sorrowful Jones (played by Adolphe Menjou) who accepts Marthy Jane (Temple) as security for a "marker"--gamblers' lingo for an IOU--to cover a $20 horse racing wager placed by her down-and-out father. When his horse loses, the father kills himself, so Jones and his gambling syndicate cronies are left in charge of Marthy. Here Shirley, who is not quite six years old, sings Laugh, You Son of a Gun. Dorothy Dell, the actress in this clip, died shortly after the film's release in an auto accident on June 8, 1934. Although Dell looked much older, she was only 19 years old.

Makin It - Failed Disco Sitcom In 1979 ABC figured the time was ripe for a disco-themed sitcom. Actually, the timing was bad. The disco fad was already on the decline, but that didn't stop ABC from giving the public nine episodes of Makin' It. The series was set in Passiac, NJ. David Naughton starred as college student Billy Manucci. Billy worked part time at Tasty Treats (an ice cream store) and spent his evenings at Inferno, Passiac's hottest disco. Ellen Travolta played the mother of Billy, an older son named Tony (who was the best dancer at Inferno), and daughter Tina. Some people have said Makin' It attempted to be a hybrid of Happy Days and Saturday Night Fever. (I think that's a fair comment. The first episode was titled Stayin' Alive. The opening credits are certainly Happy Days-like.) Here's the opening montage. Makin' It debuted on February 1, 1979 and last aired on March 23. Interestingly, the show's catchy theme song, performed by lead actor Naughton, became a hit after Makin' It had been cancelled by the network. It reached #5 on the Billboard Top 40.
