Palast gives feminist trailblazer @LilaGarrett her award from @KPFK. Lila was the first American woman to write, direct and produce a TV series, and wrote your favorite episodes of #AllInTheFamily and #Bewitched.
@LilaGarrett @KPFK At 93, @LilaGarrett's still the passionate radical "Katie Morosky" that @BarbraStreisand portrayed in The Way We Were — the true story of Lila's college years, and is still fighting the "a**hole fascists" via her @KPFK Radio broadcast #ConnectTheDots.
@LilaGarrett @KPFK @BarbraStreisand Lila also stood with my uncle Oliver Crawford (#StarTrek) on the Screen Writers' Guild board fighting the Hollywood Black List. vimeo.com/81655231

1. A personal story, and some historical analysis inspired by last night's #AllInTheFamily. From 1975 (age 7) to 1979 (age 11) I watched almost every episode, and often in unique circumstances.
2. I have vivid memories of sitting on the floor beside my grandfather watching All in the Family. He would be smoking his cigar in *his* chair to my left. My grandmother would be knitting (and probably dozing off) in *her* chair to my right.
3. My grandfather was a Republican in the 1970s. My parents kinda resembled Mike and Gloria. They had been in college in the late '60s, embraced the counterculture, were decidedly not Republicans. Like many young viewers, I lived the generational tension that the show depicted.

Y'all know that Rudy's a mobster, right?
I don't have to point out something that obvious, do I?
I do? OK...
Here you go.

(I rarely source NYDN, but this is by the late great Wayne Barrett. No one knew more abt Fred Trump, dotard, & Giuliani's corruption).
Soft-pedaling, but I know how so many rely on the Times as a paper of record.
So, here's some record for you.
