The Invasion of Buffalo

Millard Fillmore was born in a log cabin in upstate New York. Fifty years later, he took office as the thirteenth president of the United States. Around that time he sold off a piece of land. That land became the neighborhood of Lovejoy in the city of Buffalo.

Lovejoy was named after Sarah Lovejoy who had been killed defending her home during the War of 1812. British forces had assaulted American towns once again by using their Indian allies as a terror weapon. Buffalo, now a major city, was burned to the ground with only four buildings left standing.

    And if the news reports I remember hearing from Buffalo as a kid on American TV stations are anything to go by Buffalo was still burning to the ground in the ’70’s.

    • Man they had a lot of warehouses.

    I don’t think I’ll be shuffling off to Buffalo anytime soon for the kebabs, but I do have cravings for their Italian food. Best eggplant parmigiana ever!! And let’s not forget, Frank and Theresa’s Anchor Bar is the home of the iconic Buffalo chicken wings.

    I presume that the city council gets paid a substantial sum for each refugee settled.

      Other than the Peter Boyle episode, this very well may have been the best episode of the entire series.

    “Irv Weinstein, he’s the guy for me!”

    And I see Commander Tom in the photo as well although I don’t recall his real name as the WIVB sports guy (IIRC).

    BTW, the guys in the photo are some of the news guys that were the inspiration for the news guys in SCTV.
