              James Drury was an excellent actor, and The Virginian was a good series. It was unique in that it ran for 90 minutes. Drury may have been even better as a bad guy, because he was quite frightening in some villainous roles I've seen him play.

                        I'm no fan of the Kennedy clan, but I have to admit they've had a rough time of it as a family. Also sad that her boy, though not found as a of now, is part of this horrible accident.
