    In the 50's, 60's and 70's, a popular local television gimmick was late night horror movies, hosted by a gruesome but comic character. In New Orleans and south LA, the host of choice was Morgus the Magnificent, a "mad scientist" who would conduct wacky experiments aided by his mute assistant, Chopsley. New Orleans native Sid Noel Rideau, who played Morgus from 1959 to 1964, and revived the gimmick for a year in 1987, died yesterday of natural causes at age 90.

    ole tom terrific could fling it. was before my time as a mets fan but showed up alot in the commentary box for 3 innings here and there over the years. smart guy. 98 percent voted for him to the hall of fame.

    ""Three voters submitted blank ballots in protest of Pete Rose (for not being on the ballot)," "Another, following open-heart surgery, overlooked Seaver after filling out his ballot, and a fifth said he didn't vote for first-time eligibles. Seaver should have missed by one, assuming four of the five would have voted for him."
