Close Calls With Comedians & Sunday Sales

Once your memories come along you'll be right back where you belong.

Guess the historical figure

Who am I?

While not a household name like Roosevelt and Churchill, I helped establish one of the most known organizations in the world, the United Nations. I then helped ensure the end of the Arab-Israeli War in 1949 thanks to late-night billiards/negotiation sessions. It got me a Nobel Peace Prize in 1950, making me the first African-American to take home the award.

Race to the rack

No one wants to be the last one to the street sale. You never know what kind of goodies you'll find.

Celeb sightings during service

"My dad, C.R. "Bob" Wright, was assigned to Camp Roberts Army Base in June 1941. Camp Roberts opened in March 1941 and is in central California, near San Luis Obispo and Paso Robles. Dad was training others to cook and maintain the mess hall. He must have had some freedom of time and movement because he was in pictures with other celebrities that visited the base (here with Abbott and Costello)."

On this day

Fiddler hits the stage

On this day in 1964, Zero Mostel, the town of Anatevka, and the cast of Fiddler on the Roof hit the Broadway stage for the first time. It ran for a then-record 3,242 shows before being dethroned by Grease ten years later. Tradition!
