Fifty years ago, the Great Society was launched, the Ford Mustang went on sale, the Beatles invaded America, and “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.,” quite arguably the most intriguing and original adventure series ever produced for television, debuted on NBC. In September, 100 U.N.C.L.E. fans  gathered in Culver City, Calif., home of the once-glorious Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio where the show was filmed, to celebrate five decades of fascination with U.N.C.L.E. The event was strictly limited to 100 attendees and sold out quickly, an indication of the show's lasting legacy. 

The two-day event, dubbed “The Golden Anniversary Affair,” started organizing only last May.

Oregon Bank Robber Caught After Leaving Demand Note on Grocery Receipt

8 May 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

An Oregon police affidavit says a robber at the Home Federal Bank two weeks ago demanded money by giving the teller a note written on the back of a grocery receipt. It was only part of the receipt, Bend Detective Jeff Frickey said in the affidavit, but it had the last four digits of a food stamp account and the account balance - enough to get investigators going.

Legendary actor, comedian and producer Carl Reiner praised his good friend, calling him the "greatest sketch comedian-monologist that television ever produced" in an interview with Knx-am in Los Angeles, via Variety.
