WIth ancient horror films, hke The Mummy and The WolfMan, Sir Graves wolJid entertllIn us WIth songs and Jokes WIth the aId of an Greg assortment of helpers hke Cool GholJi, TillIe Trollhouse, The Glob and Barnba. Kowalski -All of them looked suspICIously i1ke SIr Graves The Jokes were awful The songs dreadful And the set - a cardboard coffin m a httle graveyard - was about as cheesy as you could get No matter SIr Graves was fun He was a gentle vampIre He had good manners and never spoke 111 of anyone He was campy m hIS own way, but he never attempted to be hip or sly He even preferred to show the clasSICold horror mOVIes,where nary a drop of blood was shown and there was no such thmg a senal kIller They had class So dId he And look what we've got now Sir Graves used to be on Saturday afternoons m a TV land that eXisted long before cable Now we have dozens of channels that essentially show nothmg These Saturday afternoons, I mJght fhp over to Fox news, or MSNBC or CNN, as I am a news JunkIe But for the most part the shows featore people yelilng at each other or otherwise engaging m verbal mudfests There doesn t seem to be any room anymore for honest debate oflegltlmate dIsagreement Now, many shows are JUst
