OK, all the cool kids are posting RIPs for Alex Chilton and well he deserves the remembrances. Luckily, I waited until late in the day so I could have Daniel Boone for my own (or Davy Crockett, if you want to back a bit further). Fess Parker, and Ed Ames as Mingo, were a much bigger part of my childhood than Chilton could ever have been. They were on TV.
Moral lessons were learned. Like not hating on Mingo just because he was an
Indian Native American. Thanks Fess for being the great role model that you were.
