(Even though he was born in London, England . . . who was more American than Bob Hope?!?!  He made 57 tours for the USO, entertaining American troops, over the years.  His family came through Ellis Island when he was 5 years old.  He hosted the Oscars 19 times!  He starred in numerous movies and television specials.  And he was invited to the White House on numerous occasions.  He lived a few months past his 100th birthday!  A great American.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
