Memo to Gislef, a moderator:
Thank you for deleting all the venom in the thread titled "Color episodes."
Would you please remove one more post that's still there? In it "The1Factotum1i1" makes strange, elliptical mean comments about David Garroway.
It is true that Mr. Garroway, best known as the first host of NBC's Today Show, appeared on What's My Line as well. It is also true that he developed some personal problems as he aged, including obesity, but does that warrant Factotum's post that begins as follows?
"Allow me to update my theory about the primitive's importance placed on names. Fat's (David's) obession [sic] stems more from his feelings of self-loathing and inferiority to others ..."
You still can find it in "Color episodes" on page 5. The date is Dec. 31, 2005.
Granted, David Garroway was in the public eye (truly the public eye as opposed to an Internet blog), but his stint there ended *almost fifty years ago.* Millions of people don't know his name or his face or his eyeglass frames. Does he really deserve to get perpetuated by a non - professional commentator with nothing better to do on New Years Eve than hurl dung into cyberspace? Dung that covers an obscure person who can't defend himself?
Thanking you in advance, Gislef, for deleting that drunken prattle. I was "Stopette" in the TV Tome days, but I'm not the original Stopette. The original Stopette was created by Dr. Jules Montenier.
