Larry King

By HARTFORD COURANT | November 21, 2004
Call it the ultimate in underground humor. For a book published earlier this year, television personality Larry King posed an unusual question to well-known public figures and celebrities: "How would you like to be remembered after your death?" More than 300 people responded to his query, providing King with the material for Remember Me When I'm Gone: The Rich and Famous Write Their Own Epitaphs and Obituaries. Last words range from actor Stacy Keach's lighthearted verse, "Here lies Stacy Keach/A Georgia peach/Lived at the beach/Now out of reach," to comedian Howie Mandell's last laugh, "Is It Me or Is it Dark In Here?"

A locally produced special for children and the return of a PBS series featuring independent films make Maryland Public Television an original place to turn tonight. Plus Barbra Streisand talks to Larry King on cable.* "Vid Kid Field Trip: National Aquarium in Baltimore" (7:30 p.m.-8 p.m., MPT, channels 22, 67) -- Bob Heck, host of MPT's daily children's programming, stars in an exploration special. He plays two parts: his usual persona as Bob the VidTech and also Momma VidTech, as he seeks her missing pet, "Sid the Vid Fish," in the National Aquarium in Baltimore.
America's fascination with the O. J. Simpson trial continues, as Christopher Darden (who's also scheduled to appear later this week on "Geraldo!") takes the case for the prosecution to CNN. With so many legal experts questioning the prosecution's strategy in recent months, it could be interesting to hear what he has to say."The Sentinel" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WNUV, Channel 54) Lots of things go boom (to great effect) in this series about a Washington-state police officer with heightened senses that make him one mean crime-fighting machine.

On The Weekend Watch:A HEAP OF HAUNTINGS -- What do you bet will be the leading costume for trick-or-treaters on Halloween next week? It has to be Bart Simpson, or others from his cartoon brood. Thus it's appropriate that tonight's episode of "The Simpsons" (at 8, Channel 45) appears to be the first of an assortment of eerieseries tie-ins to the horror holiday in coming days. Tales of a haunted house scare Bart and Lisa, and there's even a recital of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven."UNWELCOME CHOICES -- The networks have done it again.

THE MARYLAND SPCA's first March for the Animals attracted more than 400 animal lovers with their four-legged friends. I'm told it was a real hoot to watch instructors from the Downtown Athletic Club get things warmed up with Doggie Stretches.Among the walkers who helped raise more than $30,000 for the SPCA were WMAR's Sandra Pinckney and her dog, "Morley"; MIX 106 radio deejay Julie DeHarty and her dog, "Charley"; Pokey Brown and her dog, "Hannibal," who walked with pals Anne and Tom Bailliere and their dog, "Pokey"; SPCA board member Ann Clapp and her husband, Harvey, walking with their pooches, "Paul" and "George," while son David Clapp and Trini Edson from the Barclay School brought their dogs "Jake" and "Refi"; Patrice Malloy, SPCA board member and MTA marketing director, arrived with "Reggie" and "Phoebe"; and Dr. Murray Sarubin and his wife, Susan, were strutting with doggies "Kimba" and "Max."

The Greaseman is alive and well and living on the air in Los Angeles, as well as across the nation via the Infinity Broadcasting network.And for Baltimore fans, the outrageous, former Washington-based DJ whose real name is Doug Tracht can be heard more clearly than in the past, beginning Monday, although at a new time.Mr. Tracht's 10-year stint as the morning man on WWDC-FM (DC 101.1) ended late last month when he moved to Los Angeles, joining an Infinity station there with an afternoon drive-time show.

Chris Myers didn't have to be asked twice when the poobahs at ESPN gave him the chance to take over the nightly "Up Close" interview show from Roy Firestone. It just seemed like the logical thing to do."I've always wanted to do a sports-talk interview show. I've always been a fanatic of talk shows. I was such a big fan of Johnny Carson growing up and I used to listen to Larry King when my family lived in South Florida. I just didn't think a show like this would become available," said Myers.

DALLAS -- Ross Perot said just two weeks ago that he was as likely to become an active presidential candidate again as he was to leap a tall building in a single bound. Now it appears all but certain that he'll leap with both feet into the countdown days of election year '92.If voters are having a hard time getting a handle on the mercurial Texas billionaire, who's expected to announce his reborn candidacy here at a 4 p.m. press conference today, it may be because his words don't always match his actions or, in some cases, his previous words.

"Wall $treet Week," the weekly Maryland-produced show about money, will reach a significant milestone tonight. In other matters, cable shows review the Million Man March and the Republican presidential campaign.

There was once a time -- I think it was about a month ago -- when working for a newspaper meant something.If nothing else, it meant you were automatically enrolled as a card-carrying, liberal, decaf-sipping nabob of negativism who pretty much ran the country. You also might get a shot on the McLaughlin Group.Apparently it didn't matter that for the last 12 years, the anti-liberal, anti-decaf poo-bahs of positivism commandeered the oval office. The media were still in charge. That's what Pat Buchanan said anyway.
