Here's yet another reminder of how good/great "TV movies" used to be. (SyFy channel, lay off the "Sharknado" garbage!) Out here in the North Pacific, the Cuban Missile Crisis was a newspaper or 1-week-delayed TV story. But an old college classmate who lived in The Bronx at the time described the city of New York as "Fear City." (Now it's our turn, along with Guam, and Alaska, as Kim Jong Un is threatening to send "a hail of missiles" at the U.S.) Even in 1974, there were no guarantees that anyone would "live long and prosper."
