SNIDEY BUTT: Caught last week's episode of Boston Legal over the weekend, and while I thought they overdid the "moving to Wednesday" jokes in the beginning (did 'em the week before – why do 'em again?), I dug the plotline where Candace Bergen's Shirley attempted to sue the DNC for its dubious practice of letting delegates vote against a candidate their state primary selected as top choice. Alan Shore's big concluding speech was not just in character, for me it was one of those head-nodding moments we just don't get as consistently from the show anymore. (Very funny parody of Wolf Blitzer in this ep, too.) Still, watching the episode's comically callow Massachusetts delegate Mitchy, I can't help thinking back to 1968 and realizing that the then twelve-year-old Kelley was probably a bit too young to have experienced the righteous pleasure of Keeping Clean with Gene. But I remember . . .
