Bob Hope meets with Korean War veterans in Bethesda, Md. on May 5, 1953.
Legendary comedian and showman Bob Hope (search), who traveled the globe performing for millions of American troops stationed overseas through four wars, has died. He was 100.

He is survived by his wife, Delores Reade Hope, his four children, Linda, Anthony, Honora and William Kelly Francis, and four grandchildren.

Hello DMS,after i placed my comment (not the first one, that is still v ery relevent), i realised that,no, Bob Hope,did not have a reputation of being smutty, i had the wrong Bob,it was Bob Monkhouse, so i hold my hands up and say i was wrong.
Regarding time difference, i do not know, we are five hours ahead of Baltimore,Maryland, that is all i know. You say Texas is "God's own country", my Bible says "the earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof" (Psalm 24:1 )
regarding humour and laughter, well ,i have been down this road before, quoting what the scriptures have to say about that subject, so it is not worth repeating really.i dare say multitudes whom were "entertained" by Crosby/Hope are tormented in hell now, and would swap their current position to come back and hear the gospel, and so making my first comment very relevent.
