You either have a real reading comprehension problem, apparently, since all I did was respond to the foolish comment made by "Show Me".

And you're way off base with the comment about my friend Clyde, as well, but that's just another example of your lying attempts to misrepresent me here, as any casual reader can see.

No wonder you hide behind the fake names, fool, who would want to be known as the jealous obsesso you come across as here in real life?

Sniff on... heh.

The television special of our "Tribute to Clyde Baker" is now showing on Phenix City Cable and on YouTube, so we can set the record straight on all these lies you're spewing about that, then.

Your lying agenda to to attempt to misrepresent and smear my name with every post is very obvious, you anonymous little obsesso.

Just as it is obvious why you hide behind the fake names while posting... you have a complete lack of either credibility or integrity.

But why should you stop? Obviously your only interest with Topix.com is to stalk behind me with these sniffy little lies of yours. And since you hide behind the fake names you're safe from being exposed for the sleezy fool you are in real life, eh?

Either wa, you can be assured that I'll be here to correct your lies and set the record straight with every one, so, obsess on my little freind.

" "OUR" tribute" you say. PLAYGROUNDS has one sentence mentioning you singing BANG A GONG. There is no photo. Everyone else is mentioned in mass with tons of color photos of everyone else. You were there. What does that imply.

Reminds of THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW episode when Barney joined the choir and they had the fake sensitive microphone and the good singer in the back to cover for Barney's terrible singing on the solo which would otherwise ruin the entire show. PLAYGROUNDS isn't stupid.

Yes, our tribute... Clyde was a long-time friend of mine, and Basil and Faye Fitzpatrick asked me to be a part of the show, which I was glad to help with.

Get it now?

Okay, although I'll state that you using this thread as a platform to continue your obsessed attacks, lies and misrepresentations against me is inappropriate, the Clyde Baker Tribute show is worthy of mention.

As I will later on the thread already begun here on Topix.com for that purpose, here's the link to the Phenix City Cable special filmed in tribute to Clyde, and the blurb that goes with it:

http://youtu.be/5BFLcjsey04

"Tribute to Clyde Baker. Singer/songwriter from the Columbus, Georgia / Phenix City, Alabama area who passed away in April of 2012. Shot at The Loft in Columbus, Georgia May, 2012. Artists include; Basil Fitzpatrick, Faye Fitzpatrick, Joe George, Gary Adkins, Richard Long, Henry Conley, Will Dockery, Joe McClure, Derundo Jenkins, and more. Produced by EATV 7/East Alabama Cable-TV."

That's exactly what I meant when I wrote and posted the following here a few minutes ago:

The Rat Pack, as defined, is the original quintet of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop and Peter Lawford. Some of the information is prone to debate, naturally, as history morphs over time. But the information was well vetted, and the show is hosted by historian and author David Eisenbach.

Following is the list of 10 things you never knew about the Rat Pack featured in the episode:

10. The original Rat Pack was not founded by Frank Sinatra, but rather by Humphrey Bogart and his wife, Lauren Bacall, with Bacall observing the crew in the living room of the couple’s home in L.A. and saying they looked like a bunch of “drowned rats.” The term quickly evolved to “Rat Pack.”

9. Members of the Rat Pack never referred to themselves as such. Customarily, they called themselves “The Summit,” playing off the planned Four Powers Paris Summit in 1960, which was to involve President Dwight Eisenhower, Nikita Khrushchev, Harold Macmillan and Charles de Gaulle (which was tabled after the 1960 U2 spy-plane incident, as an American aircraft was shot down in Soviet airspace). Subsequently, Sinatra said his crew was going to host its own “conference of cool.”

8. Sinatra protected Davis from harm by the mob after Davis began dating actress Kim Novak in 1957, becoming one of the first celebrity interracial couples. Executives from Columbia Pictures, Novak’s film company, reportedly contacted mob officials in Las Vegas to put a scare into Davis, but Sinatra interceded and persuaded mobsters to back off.

7. Martin’s public persona as a hard-drinking reveler was often exaggerated. Many performers recall him sipping from the same glass throughout a performance, using the drink mostly as a prop.

6. Bishop, often the forgotten member of the Rat Pack, was the brains behind the operation. He wrote most of the stage banter that seemed so effortlessly improvised and was a steady emcee while making it appear as if Sinatra were actually in charge.

5. The Rat Pack invented its own language, a kind of code understood only by its tight-knit members. An example:“Some Clyde playing the Big G wanted to send me to the Big Casino ’cause I was making a little hey-hey with some Harvey’s wife in Dullsville, Ohio.” That meant that a man playing God wanted to kill a member of the group for having sex with his wife, evidently in a boring town in Ohio.

4. Politically, the Rat Packers were left-leaning. They were firmly committed to racial equality, the onstage jokes at Davis’ expense notwithstanding. They donated money from ticket sales to Martin Luther King Jr. and afforded Davis equal billing on the marquee at the Sands.

3. Sinatra’s ties to organized crime were exaggerated. The tale of Sinatra being awarded the role of Private Angelo Maggio in “From Here to Eternity” because a mob boss pressured studio executives has long been debunked. Sinatra himself persuaded executives to cast him in the film, for which he won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar. Sinatra did perform in mob-run casinos, which was common for any entertainer in Las Vegas during the Rat Pack’s heyday.

2. During his 1960 presidential campaign, John F. Kennedy took a side trip to Vegas to hang out with Sinatra and the Rat Pack. Kennedy took in two shows from the front row of the Copa Room at the Sands, and Sinatra introduced the young senator from Massachusetts as “one of our great political minds and the next president of the United States.” The Rat Pack also held fundraising shows for the Kennedy campaign.

1. The original Rat Pack fractured over a dispute that unfolded during the Kennedy administration. As this story goes, in 1962 Sinatra had prepared his home in Palm Springs, Calif., for a visit from Kennedy. Sinatra ordered a new bedroom, office and cottages for Secret Service personnel and even a heliport to be built on the property. He envisioned the home to be known as the new “Western White House,” but the Kennedys canceled the visit just days before they were due to arrive. The reason: A photo of Sinatra hugging mob boss Sam Giancana while Giancana was walking off a plane had hit the papers. Kennedy refused to be so closely aligned with reputed mob members, even if it were one heartbeat away, and Lawford arranged for Kennedy to stay at the Palm Springs home of Bing Crosby instead. The unforgiving Sinatra refused from that moment forward to share a stage with Lawford.

You seem confused... but I suspect that's part of your agenda.

You posted an attack against me and I responded to the attack, and I clearly stated before I responded:

"...You either have a real reading comprehension problem, apparently, since all I did was respond to the foolish comment made by "Show Me".
And you're way off base with the comment about my friend Clyde, as well, but that's just another example of your lying attempts to misrepresent me here, as any casual reader can see.

As usual, you are only posting on this thread as an excuse to attack me... so, who are you, hiding behind the fake name?

Obviously you sure have a grudge against me, caused by jealousy or some other sleazy motive.

I'm sure nobody on Topix.com wants, needs, or asks for an anonymous jeering fool such as you, with your obvious obsession with sniffing behind every post I make to speak for them in any way.

As any casual reader can see and agree with.

Hope this helps and have a nice day.
