    Minor point in this context, but for the record, the Z fake in the version we now know it was first shown on US television by a Los Angeles station in February 1969.

    Which LA TV station? I hadn't heard that. Thanks for any info
    you might have on that. I heard
    something about how it might have been run
    on an Australian station. The Geraldo show
    was a network show, so it had a much bigger
    audience than a local station.

    Dick and I talked many times. I remember him more as a non-violent activist, who happened to be a comedian. His commitment to family and the success of his children should be an inspiration to all races. His commitment to activism in losing weight in the 60's started me on the right path. RIP
    Ahimsa….may you live in a world of non-forcefulness.

    Dick Gregory, 1932-2017

    “Mayor Daley and other government officials during the riots of the ’60s showed their preference for property over humanity by ordering the police to shoot all looters to kill. They never said shoot murderers to kill or shoot dope pushers to kill.”
    “When the white Christian missionaries went to Africa, the white folks had the bibles and the natives had the land. When the missionaries pulled out, they had the land and the natives had the bibles.”
    “The way Americans seem to think today, about the only way to end hunger in America would be for Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird to go on national TV and say we are falling behind the Russians in feeding folks.”
    “What we’re doing in Vietnam is using the black man to kill the yellow man so the white man can keep the land he took from the red man.”
