'The Beverly Hillbillies' Backstory

Ruth Henning couldn't find the one book she wanted to read. So, like a lot of writers before her, she wrote the book herself. That book, "The First Beverly Hillbilly: The Untold Story of the Creator of Rural TV Comedy," is a newly published memoir of Henning's husband, television producer Paul Henning, who grew up in Independence, Missouri, and moved away to find fortune, and maybe not quite an equal amount of fame, in California.

    You find a reason to troll me almost every morning.

    You have, more than once, shown that your real problem with me is that I'm not a racist coward, like you. No matter how clever you imagine yourself to be, I see you very clearly. I know your name, & I know where you live.

    Tomorrow is Mark Squitiro's birthday. Are you going to post some childish nonsense about how his birthdays must be better than mine?

    BTW, The Beverly Hillbillies came from The Ozarks, not Appalachia.

    See you tomorrow, little boy.

    1. B'lieRON, you're a blatant racist, so quit lying. You wrote recently that you could believe only an ALL black jury's decision in a whitey woman's lawsuit. And, you wrote blacks can't be racists, which is more lies.
