Announcing the Mike Douglas Prize

The "blog" is proud to announce that Tom Franklin is the first recipient of the Mike Douglas Prize. This prestigious prize, which we just made up, goes to the person who contributes a new forgotten entertainer to the "blog" canon. We always think we have mentioned all the forgotten entertainers of our youth and then someone like Tom Franklin comes along and mentions Mike Douglas and "blogging" seems dewy with promise again.
