On “Rogers of the Gazette,” Will Rogers, Jr. returns as the editor of that fictional small-town newspaper, the “Illyria Weekly Gazette.” Along with dispensing homespun common sense and aphorism-filled advice to the betterment of his readers and fellow citizens, this week he’s solving a minor mystery: is Abraham Lincoln complaining about the maintenance of the town’s city hall clock? Then on “Archie Andrews,” Archie and Jughead’s passion for using all the latest slang in conversation isn’t going over so well with the rest of Riverdale’s residents.

Rogers of the Gazette

“The Town Clock”

November 11, 1953 – double checked

My only note is to explain a reference to Horace Greely, editor of the New York Tribute newspaper. During the Civil War, Greely had written an editorial critical of Lincoln for not being dedicated to ending slavery. The 16th President wrote back, and the letter was published in the Tribune. It’s Lincoln’s famous “the Union as it Was” letter, where he says his “object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery.” Like all of Abraham Lincoln’s letters, it was signed simply “A. Lincoln.”

 

Archie Andrews

“Jive Talk”

Aka “Hip Talk” – just say AKA – double confirmed

May 18, 1946

 

Archie is dreaming of lovely screen queens Heddy Lamar and Lauren Bacall.

The Prisoner is trapped in a town called Harmony after trying to resign as the sheriff of another town. Sound familiar? It does to the viewer, but the Prisoner isn't twigging to what's happening.

John and writer Jim Beard discuss the Western and what it means to each of them, the completely wasted opportunity in the writing of the ending of the story, and the symbolism of washing hands.
