Fun The Salina Journal Wednesday, January 1,1986 Page 21 My nominee will miss all 'lists' The Far Side Crossword By Eugene Shef/er New Year's is when all the list- makers come out of the woodwork. The day when columnists look either backward or forward to list their top 10:-the 10 best dressed, the 10 greatest moments in sports, the 10 top headlines, the 10 most outrageous quotes, the 10 biggest disasters, the 10 top movies, the 10 best-selling novels and the 10 biggest hits. The list that has always intrigued me is the "most admired" one. Every year I look at it and try to figure out what our criteria are for this honor. I see on it a group of prominent men and women we know only through the press. Today, I would like to offer my nomination for all 10 places on the . most admired list. ; My nominee is without age or any , particular sex. He lives in a hospital bed, a wheelchair, a rest home, in a world of darkness, or a prison of silence. His job? Survival. His challenge? Live with disease and pain. His goal? Every day when God opens up a new day for business, he shows up for it. My nominee never looks back. It's too painful. He never looks forward. Tank McNamara Erma Bombeck I.OS ANGELES TIMES It's a luxury. He lives for what he has this day ... this hour ... this very second. My nominee exists on a diet of optimism and hope. Occasionally he falls off the emotional diet and pigs out on self-pity, but returns again to do battle. My most admired entry makes those around him comfortable and goes out of his way to help us deal with problems. He allows us to see in him that nothing is as important as today and nothing is as uncertain as tomorrow. He offers to us a legacy of courage that will sustain us for years to come. He shows us the way to laugh at the things we can do nothing about and cry at the things we can. My faceless, nameless nominee will never be on the cover of Time. He will never covet a statue for excellence, a prize for courage, or make any of the "lists." But my nominee will touch more lives, effect more change, stir more emotion, and inspire more respect than any other person you will meet in your lifetime. Ellen McRae part of Burstyn's history LOS ANGELES (AP) - If you spot Ellen McRae in "Goodbye Charlie" or "For Those Who Think Young" on the late show and she looks familiar, there's a reason. That was one of the professional names used by the actress now known as Ellen Burstyn. She didn't become well known until 1975 when she won an Academy Award for "Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore" and a Tony award for "Same Time Next Year." She was born Edna Rae Gilhooley. At various times in her career she was known as Keri Flynn, Erica Dean, Edna Rae and Ellen McRae.
