Roger Joseph Ebert, born June 18th 1942 in Urbana Illinois, died today April 4th 2013 at the age of 70. Best known as a film critic, Roger was also a journalist and screenwriter who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1975.

Larry King, the famous television host, earlier in his career. Larry King was born Lawrence Leibel Harvey Zeiger on November 19th, 1933 in Brooklyn, New York City. Larry began his media career as an entry level support staff of a small station in Miami Beach, and got his first broadcast opportunity on May 1st, 1957. A little known fact is that Larry King credits Jackie Gleason for much of his career. Jackie, who at that time was filming his television show in Miami Beach, took a liking to Larry and honed Larry's media skills. Larry King went to national radio in 1978, and began hosting the famous CNN show "Larry King Live" in June 1985 which lasted until his retirement on December 16th, 2010.

The first televised United States presidential debate was held in Chicago on September 26th, 1960 between Senator John F. Kennedy and Vice President Richard Nixon. There were a total of four televised debates between these two candidates however the first debate gathered the most attention with upwards of 70 million viewers. Most Americans believed that Kennedy had won the first presidential debate. Nixon did not prepare well for the televised event. He had campaigned until a few hours before the debate, refused makeup, and was still recovering from a hospital stay, resulting in his appearing ill. In contrast, Kennedy was well rested, prepared and appeared confident and healthy. While the Kennedy / Nixon presidential debate was the first televised debate, there were previous political debates, most notably the 1858 Senate debates between Abraham Lincoln and Senator Stephen A. Douglas.

Daniel Pinna Today I was in a b-17 bomber from WW2. While not the exact plane you flew in, it was very similar. Thought of you Uncle Chuck!

Daniel Pinna I found a tombstone that said Priscilla was born March 3rd, 1777. Are you sure she was born March 9th? I know the newspaper article says March 9th, but it also refers to the family as "Scoggins" and not "Scroggins". Newspaper article: "Rev. H. G. Horton writes to the Texas Advocate: "In Gainesville, Ga.. lives Mrs. Priscilla Scoggins, probably the oldest Methodist in the world. She was born on the Catawba river, in Lancaster County, S.C., March 9, 1777. Her father, William Allen, moved to Georgia in 1820 and died fifty-three years ago at the age of one hundred and twelve. Mrs. Scoggins united with the Methodist Episcopal Church at the age of fourteen, and has been a consistent member for over one hundred years. She has enjoyed good health all her life, until about the 1st of March, 1892, when her mind and body both gave way. Her membership is at Redwine Church, but she expresses a wish to be buried at Mount Zion Church, Forsyth County. Her husband, Wm. Scoggins, died in 1862 at the age of ninety-two years. Mrs. Scoggins has one living child, Mrs. Mabry, eighty-seven years of age, who takes care of her not utterly helpless mother. Mrs. Mabry has been a Methodist for seventy-two years. This old saint is now waiting patiently for the angel of death. Can a parallel case be found?"

Daniel Pinna Happy Birthday Grandpa. Today was like any other day, and I didn't remember that March 26th was when you were born, until your daughter reminded me. :) You would have been 88 this year (2015). Thank you for such great memories while I was growing up and for always being 'around', even after death. We are proud of you too.
