Thanks for those thoughts Hiram -- that is how I feel about Fess Parker as well as Harmon Killebrew. I know that every generation of geezers like me says there are no heroes around today like those who earned our respect 50 years ago, but I hope it's not true. I still believe there are good role models out there, even if not in the worlds of sports and entertainment. Many have names we'll never know, but they set a great example, just as these two guys did.
