"The definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to this piece by Rossini and not think of The Lone Ranger." George Carlin
Richard Mach was sufficiently inspired by the previous paragraphs to include this essay on the Lone Ranger.
"I've always had problems with a horse, any horse, even a white horse, traveling at velocities that would allow it to circumnavigate the globe at the equator 7.48 times within any given second. Always seemed to me just a tad fast. Beyond that I would like to note as a self proclaimed ersatz authority that -- as a boy -- I lived 1.6 miles from the original Lone Ranger's "ranch" on Drahner Rd in Oxford. MI. And rode my ballooned tired bike up there from the house once a week on average to gaze at and admire "Silver." Every I'd lay on the floor in front of the giant Motorola radio listening to his exploits. Now, I am talking about the RadioLone Ranger, that is, before the advent of the Clayton Moore era on television. The guy behind the mask name was Brace Beemer, he kept that beautiful white stallion in the paddock for all to see and frequented a bar in the adjoining town immediately to the south, Lake Orion, most nights wearing a pair of six guns until one night when ... well ... he managed -- however advertently or not --to discharge said weapons within the premises and that initiated an immediate imposed curfew on him carrying -- with mandatory checking of both of them at the door. Forevermore. His lobbying to keep just one strapped on came to naught. A colorful character, whoseliver was soon to be even more florid.
where we are seeing a very different NCAA championship than last year. The 1965 meet couldn't have been closer. USC and Oregon tied at 33. This year BYU matches that total but is outclassed by UCLA's Bruins who rack up 81 points. The 48 point margin is the largest in meet history. Only the absence due to injury of defending mile champ, Bob Day, keeps the trouncing from being worse. Likely things won't get any easier for the rest of the NCAA next year. The Bruins have 74 of those points returning.
I'm sure Pete Brown is shaking his head, grinning , and thinking "That's Adolph". What a natural talent. GB
