    Bob Wilkins, the host in the '70's of Creature Features died last month. Respect should be paid to this unique soft spoken and totally original man. In his glasses, rocking chair and with ever present cigar, he calmly advised viewers not to watch if the flick was a total stinker. He was the first horror host not to resort to scary / funny makeup. His most famous quote was 'Keep America strong! Watch horror movies!"
    His successor John Stanley may be better known, as he's written several excellent books on horror films, but it's Bob I'll always recall most fondly. Thanks.
