Look Up In The Sky? Is it a Bird, Is It Superman?

No it's a plane, at the Gasparilla Parade, towing a banner asking you to Vote for Randy Baron for City Council, District 1. More on this the Tribune

"The banner included his Web site, www.baron4tampa.com. At least 400,000 people could have seen the banner—many of whom undoubtedly are registered voters"

I guess this is Randy is taking the high route in this race. Does this make him a banner candidate for City Council? Does this place him head and shoulders above all the other candidates?

Using that plane and banner is innovative, the kind of thinking we need in City Council.

When did he become "Red"? Wasn't that the German ace from WWI who shot down Americans?

No, it was Snoopy he was after and I have proof.

After the turn of the century
In the clear blue skies over Germany
Came a roar and a thunder men had never heard
Like the scream and the sound of a big war bird

Up in the sky, a man in a plane
Baron von Richthofen was his name
Eighty men tried, and eighty men died
Now they're buried together on the countryside

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' up the score
Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

In the nick of time, a hero arose
A funny-looking dog with a big black nose
He flew into the sky to seek revenge
But the Baron shot him down - "Curses, foiled again!"

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' up the score
Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

Now, Snoopy had sworn that he'd get that man
So he asked the Great Pumpkin for a new battle plan
He challenged the German to a real dogfight
While the Baron was laughing, he got him in his sight

That Bloody Red Baron was in a fix
He'd tried everything, but he'd run out of tricks
Snoopy fired once, and he fired twice
And that Bloody Red Baron went spinning out of sight

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' up the score
Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

Ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty or more
The Bloody Red Baron was rollin' up the score
Eighty men died tryin' to end that spree
of the Bloody Red Baron of Germany

What was the deal with the teacher's voice on the Peanuts shows?

Same voices for all adult's in the cartoon in person or on the phone.
The voices of adults were never real words, only the children characters. Some kind of authority thing I read once, I think.
Always kind of weird although you always got the message of what was trying to be communicated.
A Charles Shultz thing.
