Sundays Without The Walking Dead: What To Do, What To Do

I wait so impatiently through the Spring, Summer and early Fall for the return of The Walking Dead (and post-show Talking Dead). The AMC hit comes back with 8 episodes, takes my breath away, then it’s off again until February.

What am I supposed to do Sunday nights from 9 to 11?

I suppose I could do something constructive around the house if I don’t have an article to write. I could also watch Sunday Night Football from the beginning for a change.

Were we in an actual zombie apocalypse I’d aggressively relieve my frustrations on real “walkers” wondering the neighborhood aimlessly in search for fresh flesh to nibble.

Or maybe I’d just stay inside and read. Fighting zombies for two hours sounds like a terrible idea.

I Don't Know Bill Cosby. I Do Know Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable.

Hollywood icon Bill Cosby is the subject of some serious allegations.

When the rumblings about him possibly being a years-long serial rapist began, I purposely avoided televised and printed news stories. One day recently I finally gave in, reading a few articles on 

My opinion? I can’t be too surprised by the actions of any human. 

Most importantly, I don’t know Bill Cosby. 

When I was little I was introduced to his classic stand-up comedy special Bill Cosby: Himself. I laughed. I bought the DVD when I stumbled across it in a $5 bin at Walmart years later. It gives no indication of his character and intentions off camera.

I do know Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable - the character Cosby famously played on his hit sitcom “The Cosby Show.” And as well I should. I watched Dr. Huxtable’s life unfold every Thursday for 8 years of my life. I know he had an issue with weight, his cholesterol was high, and he wanted his children to move out and stay moved out. He was also a great parent and husband.

If someone told me Dr. Heathcliff Huxtable was possibly a years-long serial rapist? That would unpleasantly surprise me.
