"Laugh-In" is 50 years old? You bet your sweet bippy.

I can see by the old clock on the wall that "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" premiered as a regular series on NBC on Jan. 22, 1968, and became an overnight sensation.  You can look that up in your Funk & Wagnalls.

The seats are gone -- removed and sold. The large porcelain CINCINNATI GARDENS letters erected for the 1949 opening have been promised to the American Sign Museum in Camp Washington.

And sometime in the not too distant future the Cincinnati Gardens arena – home of Oscar Robertson's NBA Cincinnati Royals, and the minor league Swords, Cyclones, Mohawks and Mighty Ducks – will be a pile of rubble.
