    Word, you need to fix your link text its all hosed up. Here’s an interesting footnote for you about wacky drug episodes; in the late 90s the Govt bought a slew of media time for anti-drug messages and a really low price from the major networks. Then the .com bubble began and the networks worked out a deal to get the more valuable media time back in exchange for anti-drug messages in their tv shows. That’s why so many family shows had a mysterious older brother that was only mentioned in an episode or two and then died from drugs or drinking or driving.

    The movie playing at Hyland Theatre at the time of the fire was “City of Joy”, starring Patrick Swayze. But apparently, it was a classic ‘backdraft’ type of fire and “Backdraft’ played the week before. Cue the Twilight Zone theme…
