Resquiat in pacem: Alan Hale, Jr. (1918 - 1990)
Alan Hale, Jr., known to most as the Skipper from the television series, "Gilligan's Island," died twenty years ago today, on January 2, 1990. That show originally aired from 1964 to 1967, but I remember it in reruns during the 1980s, two decades after its original run. Rest in Peace.
Thirty-something suffering from nostalgia but, thankfully, not from bouts of irony. Here, I will revisit artifacts of popular culture not sufficiently explored elsewhere, though I may perhaps stray from that mission at times.
