Spent first half of 80's drunk, just now using Netflix to catch up on TV series I missed. Fascinated by So. accent of psychiatrist Beale on St. Elsewhere, wondered where else I had seen him. Lt Provenza. Wanted to let GWB know that I dated Debbie Hosea from PA summer '67 when I worked for Houston Legal Foundation. Loved story about his fight with Janis. Spent large part of 80's in Beaumont and Marshall trying a products liability death case [we lost], judge from M screwed us in B, then gave us indemnity from Navy in M. Loved Beale's accent because I spent 75/9 in Pascagoula, armpit of Gulf Coast, and went to Biloxi and Gulfport frequently to p/u I 10 W to NO.
