I wish I can be sorry that Robert McNamara passed recently, but he was responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of young men and thousands more innocent civilians in Vietnam.

If you want to know what I am talking about, rent the documentary "Fog of War".
Incredible how he talks in circles and puts on a phony crying act when he talks about the self immolation of Norman Morrison (a Quaker activist) outside his office at the Pentagon.

That is all I have to say about that!

I remember watching 'Fog of War' a few years ago, armitagenlowell, so I know what you are talking about. I remembered McNamara saying that he thought the Vietman War was an extension of the Cold War, when in fact it was a civil war.

On top of Just Men! hosted by Betty White where she won a daytime emmy for her hosting gig, but the updated version of $ale of the Century & Hit Man debuted the same day. Both Just Men! & Hit Man ended after 3 months, but $ale stayed on until Friday, March 24, 1989. That's 6 years and 2 months & 1,578 shows in all.

Just watched this commercial here for the first time, and remembered it instantly from when it originally aired. A pleasant, simple, straightforward and effective message expressed without yelling, bombast or any people acting like idiots. Those were the days.

The only place I can find Sanka now is on amazon. At least it's still around, stopping people from feeling edgy.
