To our story about Richard Dawson the Destroyer of Childhood Innocence, we received the following emails.

Alas, a very true story, and well told, Mr. Editor/Commish. I understand TAH's lofty goal of being accurate, so I'll only add three things:

1. The question was "name something you believed in as a child that you no longer believe in as adult." (It wasn't traumatic at all.)

2. I actually remember saying "well, that's a stupid answer," when contestant A answered Santa Claus. Turns out, it wasn't so stupid after all.

3. The meal I was enjoying was a bowl of plain macaroni, with parm, butter, and ketchup. (Ketchup? I was EIGHT, people.)

As always, CC Nation Rocks. -- John Seminole Clark

And in response, from one Dirt Callaghan:

Don't believe what you see on TV, John, it's all just a ratings ploy. Santa, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy, The Wizard of Oz, Dracula, Joey Buttafuco --- all real, my friend, all very real. Now sleep tight tonight, and whatever you do, do NOT look under the bed. – Dirt.

(Editor's Note: Now, we are reluctant to argue with a man that can fly a jet fighter upside down, but there is no way that Joey Buttafuco guy is real…no way.)
