And on a similar note

After my recent television watching weirdness, I've been totally mesmerized (anew) by "The Waltons"--now that's good TV. What a different image and public narrative about poverty and "work ethic" and family and community and compassion and even race (recently watched the episode when Pa defends the wrongly convicted black man). Good stuff.

Good night, Steel.

(That was the show where everyone said goodnight a thousand times at the end right?)

Right, you are!

Know what else? I JUST NOW, after watching these reruns recently, understand that John Boy (who always received the last good night) was named so because his father was also named John, making the son John--the boy. So interesting. And dense of me . . . .

Good night, Ink. And good night, John Boy. :)
