Hollywood Kryptonite

Back when I was working those 12-16 hour overnight shifts at the plant, I discovered many cool things to keep me occupied, as I'd need to stay near my machine to keep it at full production, I'd pretty much just stand and read from the ubernet. I discovered that the L.A.Times was running a blog called The Daily Mirror, which reprinted Matt Weinstock articles from exactly fifty years ago. I started reading the archives off and on in April of "1957," and I am keeping my fingers crossed that the paper doesn't fold (as expected) before my 50th birthday in September. Here's what was posted tonight, though, to be honest, I want to know way more about that headline on the bottom, SID ZIFF LOSES. There's more to that one.
