    Wow...just wow! Here's a quote from the article you linked..."Sales was born Milton Supman on Jan. 8, 1926, in Franklinton, N.C., where his was the only Jewish family in town. His parents, owners of a dry-goods store, sold sheets to the Ku Klux Klan."

    Hit by over 25,000 pies. I rember the Naked Lady..I even heard he said "Hire the handicap, there fun to watch" Lots of urban myths about what he may or may not have said. I saw a clip were he introduces jazz trumpeter Clifford Brown and Clifford does his thing.

    As a kid, I could never understand why my Mother said life was short. Now that I am middle aged, it is painfully obvious.:(

    Another person I remember from his or her prime, is dead.

    My favorite pie hit was Soupy looking up the chimney and asking "is that you Santa?" then splat.
