+ 27.225 MHz 237: Three For Whom I Have, Or Will Have, Wept

February 69, I wept for Karloff's departure;

last week, I wept that Alex Trebec

has left.  A third time, I will have wept,

but I will not say for whom out of respect.


Author's Notes/Comments: 

If you are curious who is the third, note me.  I think I first experienced the cruelty that can be surging beneath the innocence of an elementary school in fifth grade, in February, 1969, when the news of Karloff's death brought my tears, to hear it on the radio, at home at breakfast, tha morning; and to hear it mocked by my laughing peers, who then laughed the more because their mockery had again brought me to tears.
