A few years ago, there was an article in the local newspaper telling people to use the non-emergency number for things that weren't emergncies. It made a big deal about how the police would start issuing citations to thise who called 911 when it wasn't an emergency. Problem was, they neglected to reveal the non-emergency number, which was new enough not to have been in the phone book yet. Oops.

The funny (peculiar) coincidence is, 20th Century-Fox had involvements in both "Lost In Space" and the originally released "Star Wars" movies.

(Wonder if this was on the part of CBS to keep him from bolting to "another network" - as was the case a year later when, to persuade Lucille Ball to sign on for another year of "The Lucy Show," they put then-Desilu production "Mission: Impossible" [another future WFLD staple] on the CBS schedule.) Not to mention that Fox now owns 32, has since 1986 . . .
