21-50 To Headquarters--call the coroner 10-4--Let's Go Down Memory Lane

Whenever the laws of any state are broken, a duly authorized organization swings into action. It may be called the State Police, State Troopers, Militia, the Rangers... or the Highway Patrol. These are the stories of the men whose training, skill and courage have enforced and preserved our state laws.

If you are old enough like me, you may remember this syndicated TV series--Highway Patrol. Came across this fan's You Tube video The STAR and the CAR - "How Broderick Crawford and a '55 Buick Changed My Life" with GARY GOLTZ. The Star and the Car is a documentary about Gary Goltz, and how his love of the 50's TV series HIGHWAY PATROL led to restoring a 1955 Buick to the appearance of Broderick Crawford's car used on the classic show. Brings back some memories as a young boy.



The Show Opening





And in closing--as Broderick Crawford use to say:
Leave your blood at the Red Cross, not on the highway!

BTW: ZIV TV producer and distributor of the series, also produced and distributed Sea Hunt

Watched every episode.

21-50, 21-50 to Headquarters...

Also, among many other shows, The Detectives, with Robert Taylor, was a favorite.

And I was a big Sea Hunt fan. It had a terrific opening theme.

It spawned Assignment: Underwater, a father-daughter dive team, and later the Under Sea World of Jaques Cousteau.

There were other shows, best forgotten.




When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men
except by believing all possible evil
of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

-An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

Mister, that's a ten-gallon hat on a twenty-gallon head.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

If I were a kid watching these, I'd be totally confused by the absence of mobile phones and computers and the internet. It's a throwback to medieval times.

One of my favorite plot points of Life starring Damien Lewis and Sarah Shahi, was his release from 12yrs in Pelican Bay and finding that technology had passed him by.

He spent a fair bit of time marveling at cellphones, and they were mere flip phones, no smartphones yet.

Many years ago I was good friends with the eponymous grand nephew(?) of Broderick Crawford. Super nice guy. Huge James Bond fan. Bit of a lad about town. We got up to a hijink or two.
