Yet Another Ripples Effect

posted on July 11, 2018

I’m continuing to enjoy my trip into the past reading the New York Daily News Sunday sections from 1948.  And, George Clark’s work on Ripples remains as enchanting as ever.

This is probably going to brand me as the old fart that I probably am, but, as I watched Star Wars – The Last Jedi, I found myself wondering what was left for a viewer to imagine anymore. Not a lot. What this will do to imaginations long term is an unknown, but before there was a rebel command center or the bridge of the Enterprise, there was the deck of the Polaris with Cadet Astro, Cadet Tom Corbet, Cadet Roger Manning and Captain Strong. There wasn’t a great deal to work with there, but it allowed a viewer’s imagination to run wild and perhaps, just perhaps, one day imagine something like… Star Wars.

Parlor was one of my favorite restaurants in New York City. Like so many other favorite places in that sad bad city, it’s now a part of the city’s history, RIP, old friend.
