Dear Sir, Let’s Be Happy This Summer

After WWI, the Great Depression and WWII, people were tired of being sad and depressed. So that’s when Hollywood and actors thought Americans needed to laugh again and be happy again.

That’s when Laurel & Hardy, Abbott and Costello, the 3-Stooges, George Burns, Gracie Allen, Jackie Geason,  Art Carney, the Bowery Boys and Our Gang; and later you had Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith, Dick Van Dyke Show and so on! But they got the country laughing again. So I think Hollywood can do it again. If the country ever needed to laugh, now is the time! It’s been a long sad 2 years or more, and I think actors and actresses could contribute to the American Society and make us laugh again. No more violent movies. We need comedies and fun shows, variety shows like Carol Burnett, Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-in, Sonny & Cher and so on.

If this gets printed I’ll get on the computer and get addresses of ABC, NBC & CBS and mail them all a Progress News and see what happens to TV shows.

Hopefully, they will make us all laugh, and make us very happy this summer!
