Little Buddy indeed . . .
the fact that I used to actually watch Gilligan's Island every week (glassy-eyed with a thin line of drool I'm sure) speaks volumes - about my own lack of ability as a kid to discern between "funny" and "mindless" - about the level of sophistication that was network TV comedy for a couple of decades - and about the strange power of a cute girl in tiny denim shorts and a gingham top tied at the waist. mmmmmm . . . Mary Ann . . .
