Subject: Courtroom Vaudeville in Scranton|
My dad was the Ass't Chief of the Scranton (Pa.) Fire Dept and was an expert arson investigator.
At one time, a lawyer asked him his opinion of the testimony by the other side's arson expert who insisted on being called "professor." My dad answered, "He's a professor alright -- Professor Irwin Corey."
My dad was right, and the lawyer went on to expose the "professor" as a fraud.

| A heartful of thanks|
Professor Irwin Corey can be one hot act to follow. I have enjoyed his work for years. My father god rest his sole loved to hear Irwin's works. He (Charles Alexander Corey, 1923-2000) was a cc camp in the mid-west boxing light weight champion too. My father offen wondered if we were relatives because of what been called the Corey families since of humor. Our families came out of New York State, but went back to Thomas Corey and Abigale Gould of MA 1665. Relative or not he will always have warm spot in my family's heart for the gift of joy and laughter. Thank you and my God Bless you and yours.
