|Ottis Dewey "Slim" Whitman Jr.
Here's a classic. As The Firesign Theatre's Don G. Ovanni would say, "If you asked for this in a store, they'd think you were CRAZY!"
But it's not that aspect of the man from Tampa's brilliant career for which I want to honor him today. It's for his indispensable role in stopping the great Martian attack of 1996.
These two scenes from a documentary I found on YouTube tell the story.
So thank you Slim Whitman for defeating the Martian menace. The Earth will never forget!
We'll remember you!
