Our Dino, the Sam and frankie: Inaugural Ball 1961
Hey pallies, likes my admiration for our Dino continues to grow daily. Yesterday I Dinoreported how our Dino was so angered by the dis-invite by JFK to the Sam to the 1961 Inaugural bash that our great man refused to go and perform himself. Our Dino knew racial prejudice when he saw it...and he took his valiant stand against racism....supporting his pallie Sam. Well pallies, as I was workin' on that Dinostory, I couldn't help but wonder where did the frankie stand on this matter....so I did a bit of internet research. Turns out that JFK put the frankie in charge of intertainment for that bash....so did the frankie follow our Dino's lead and bow out in respect to the Sam? Sorry to say pallies, the answer is no....frankie was at the event front and center...and as you will see was photographed with the new President. So, while our great man took his stand and showed true palliedom to the Sam...and stood up again racism...the frankie just went on with the show...makes you wonder if our Dino's action caused a riff between himself and the frankie...buts we know who done right in this situation.
The Dinopix that I had hoped to share yesterday of a stellar moment of our Dino and the Sam from the Dinoshow (so wish that Dinoclip was still available on youtube) is at the top of this Dinopost and the pix below of the frankie is proof of where he was and what he was doin' on the night of the 1961 Inaugural Ball. Perhaps those of you who mighta thought that I was too harsh on the frankie before will now better understand why only Dino truly matters. Dinodevotedly, DMP
