    A tribute to Harold Gray. Best known as the creator of “Little Orphan Annie”, Gray passed away from cancer on this date in 1968, at the age of 74 in La Jolia, California.

    Morning, Anniephans!
    Thank you, Gmartin. Harold Gray was one of the all-time greats.


    Annie appears so nonchalant when she says Wooter was captured and hanged. What happens when a ghost is hanged anyway? But we still have a couple of unresolved conflicts. The local townspeople still consider Wooter a hero. And the mall is still scheduled to be built atop the graveyard.


    Here’s the link to Annie 2004 .

    Maybe Wooter van Wooter being hung is an indication that papers proving his Tory ties are being discovered. Remember, part of the current van Wooter’s influence is based on the belief that Eooter van Wooter was a hero of the American revolution. If the family is known to be descendants of a traitor, won’t the modern members of the town start questioning the motives of the current von Wooten?

    The actual traitors were the revolutionaries. The Tories were still loyal to the crown.

    The British regarded the Revolution as a rebellion against legitimate authority, which in the strict sense it was, and the revolutionaries as traitors. It became a revolution when the rebels won. Which is why a lot of Canadians revere their Loyalist ancestors. Of course if Wooter van Wooter had publicly and actively supported the Revolution before his betrayal then he’d be in the same boat a Benedict Arnold who was never well-regarded or trusted by the British even after he switched sides.

    There was no American revolution – or civil war either. We have had two wars of secession. The first successful, the second not. The French had a revolution.

    There was never any attempt by the Americans to take over the British government – we just wanted to be left alone. The south had no intention of taking over the north – they just wanted to be left alone.

    When the Marxists finish taking over the US, that will be a revolution.

    Maybe the other ghosts will keep him away from the house for awhile. Ghosts don’t die unless you use extraordinary means. (See “The Frighteners” and “Supernatural” for different versions.)

    Boy have you bought the lies. (Tell us what a Marxist is sometime?) No it is the Plutocrats who are and at the rate they are winning we could be under their golden thumbs at any time and not know it.

    @Stuart Gathman

    The correct terminology is "The American Revoluionary War’, and “The War Between the States.” They were, indeed, wars. If Jefferson Davis had taken Robert E. Lee’s advice, the South could have taken Washington D.C. after the first battle at Manassas, and forced Lincoln to sue for peace; but Davis, as you said, had no intention of invading the North.

    yes as Martin Balsam said in Psycho (shortly before his untimely demise): “If it doesn’t jell it isn’t aspic.”

    Turned out to be the worse blunder of the war.

    Quite correct, sir. The War of Northern Aggression (when the Yankees invaded America) was emphatically NOT a Civil War.
