Ken Weatherwax, who played Pugsley on the 1960′s TV series ‘The Addams Family’ has passed away at the age of 59. His niece, Shanyn Vieira, confirmed on her Facebook page that Weatherwax died from a heart attack. Weatherwax was found at his home in California on Sunday.
Weatherwax died of a heart attack at his Box Canyon, California, home over the weekend, said Joey D. Vieira, his half brother. Weatherwax’s body was found on Sunday.
Pugsley, the son of Gomez and Morticia, was a member of the family of macabre oddballs in the television series, which aired on ABC from 1964 to 1966 with its familiar, finger-snapping theme song.
Besides acting on the Addams Family, which was based on the merrily macabre New Yorker cartoons by Charles Addams and ran on ABC for two seasons beginning in 1964 – Carolyn Jones and John Astin starred as Pugsley’s parents, Morticia and Gomez Addams – Weatherwax served in the Army and worked for Universal Studios as a grip, said his niece, Shanyn Vieira.
Sir Charles is correct again … “We never discuss race in this country until something bad happens.”
In an interview with CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, Charles Barkley defended his previous comments that he said regarding the no indictment grand jury decision in Ferguson, the police and rioters. Barkley reiterated that he does not believe that white cops are out to shoot black people because of racism … ”That’s ridiculous.” Some, like Van Jones, have found his words inflammatory (VIDEO). Wow, that’s rich. Van Jones is one to talk about irresponsible and inflammatory comments. In typical fashion Jones misrepresented what Sir Charles previous said. What a shock from some one who used to be in the Obama administration. Sorry Van Jones if the truth hurts.
During the interview Charles Barkley made a very powerful and truthful comment, “We never discuss race in this country until something bad happens.” He is correct. When something bad happens the issue then becomes polarized and spun to the agenda of the liberal MSM and race merchants.
The basketball analyst for Turner Sports and former NBA great isn’t backing away from comments he made on the radio recently that people who torched buildings in Ferguson are “scumbags” and some blacks degrade successful African-Americans too often as not black enough.
Barkley also agreed with the grand jury’s decision not to indict former Ferguson police Officer Darren Wilson, who is white, for fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager.
In an interview with CNN’s Brooke Baldwin on Tuesday, Barkley repeatedly came back to one point: He doesn’t believe that white cops are out to shoot black people because of racism.
“That’s ridiculous,” he said.
Barkley called for dialogue, and not just after a controversial incident like the Michael Brown shooting.
“We never discuss race in this country until something bad happens,” he said. And even then it usually reflects a “tribe mentality.”

NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley Says Ferguson Grand Jury Got it Right, Looters Are Scumbags … “If it Wasn’t for the Cops We would be Living in the Wild, Wild West in our Neighborhoods”
Last week Charles Barkley had an interview on Philadelphia radio 97.5′s “The Fanatic,” that all need to listen to, especially blacks and the media.
Never one to hold back and speak his mind, not caring about public opinion or political correctness, Charles Barkley schooled host Mike Missanelli on the facts of the case and that the Ferguson grand jury got it right in not indicting police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown. Sir Charles first discussed his past comments about “brainwashed blacks” holding back black people. Then went into the Ferguson situation and called the looters “jackasses”. Barkley said, “those aren’t real black people, those are scum bags.” He went on to say that the media never covers stories of black people in a positive light, only the negative ones. Charles has a point. Barkley ended the interview with, “there is no excuse for those people burning down people’s businesses”
It is a must listen to interview … Charles Barkley is the voice of reason.
“I can’t believe anything I hear on television anymore, and that’s why I don’t like talking about race issues with the media anymore because they love this stuff and lead people to jump to conclusions. The media shouldn’t do that. They never do that when black people kill each other.”
“We have to be really careful with the cops because if it wasn’t for the cops we would be living in the wild, wild west in our neighborhoods. We can’t pick out certain incidentals that don’t go our way and act like the cops are all bad. Do you know how bad some of these neighborhoods would be if it wasn’t for the cops?”

Hmm, Uber-Lib Bill Maher has a lucid moment and spoke the truth on something other than ISIS and radical Islam …
During HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher, the always liberal opinionated comedian stated in regards to the Ferguson, Missouri shooting that Michael Brown was not acting like a “Gentle Giant”. He was acting like a thug. Of course Maher also had to call police officer Darren Wilson a “plain murderer,” even though it would appear that from information leaked from the grand jury states otherwise.
Calling Michael Brown a thug, does that make Maher a racist?
BILL MAHER: You know what else I find disturbing is that everybody in America just sides with their own people and doesn’t look at the facts. The cops, I saw on the news a couple of weeks ago, were wearing bracelets or something that said, “I am Darren Wilson.” Why do you want to throw your lot in with this plain murderer?
And Michael Brown’s people. I’m sorry, but Michael Brown’s people say he is a gentle giant. Well, we saw of when he was in that 7-11. No, he wasn’t a gentle giant. He was committing a robbery and he pushed that guy. He was acting like a thug, not a gentle giant. He certainly didn’t deserve to be shot for it.
EXIT COMMENT: Enough of calling Michael Brown an armed armed teenager. If he was going for the police officer’s gun as many accounts have stated, that does not make him unarmed and certainly not a gentle giant. Every year police officers are killed with their own guns. I wonder if the Ferguson, Mo story would have been covered differently if the officer’s name had been Nicola Cotton?
Liberal Comedian David Letterman Turns on Obama & Mocks His ISIS Strategy … “Now Have a Name for the War Against ISIS: Operation Hillary’s Problem”
Even uber-Lib comedian David Letterman is mocking President Barack Obama these days. With the Obama administration not providing a name to the war on ISIS, Letterman announced to his audience that it appears that Obama has finally come up with a name for the war on ISIS … “Operation Hilary’s Problem”.
On Friday night, liberal late night host David Letterman mocked President Obama over is handling of ISIS. The CBS comedian joked “the administration now has a name for the war against ISIS. Have you heard the name?”
The CBS host continued by pointing out how “every military operation has to have a name so people can get behind it and they now have a name for the war against ISIS: “Operation Hillary’s Problem.’”
32 Year Old Actress Misty Upham Reported Missing on 10/6/14 in Auburn, WA (Update: Misty Upham Confirmed Dead: Family ID Body)
32 year old actress Misty Upham was reported missing by her father on Monday, October 6, 2014. Upton was last seen leaving her sister’s apartment in Muckleshoot, Washington on Sunday. The Blackfeet actress best known for her roles in “August: Osage County” and “Frozen River,” has been confirmed missing by Washington state police. According to the Auburn Police Department, they received a call with a report of a suicidal person at her parents’ apartment, but when officers responded they were told the suicidal person had already left.
“Our officers responded to her apartment where she lives with her parents on Sunday for a suicidal call,” Commander Steve Stocker tells PEOPLE. “When our officers got there, she had already packed up some belongings and left the apartment, so the officers were not able to contact or find her.”
The following day, Upham’s father, Charles, wanted his daughter listed officially as a missing person. However, Upham does not fit the criteria for a “missing and endangered person,” per Washington state law, in which the person’s missing occurrence has to be “unexplainable, involuntary or suspicious,” according to Stocker.
“As far as the information we have, she took some things with her, she has a bus pass and even access to some money, and [the case] has been assigned to a detective, but we aren’t putting resources [to look for her],” says Stocker.
In the last year, police have responded to Upham’s apartment four times for suicide calls, and according to past police reports, this is not the first time Upham has left home, Stocker says.
If you have any information regarding Misty Upham’s whereabouts, please contact Washington’s Auburn Police Department at 253-288-2121.
