    My dad watched Kojak religiously. I was too young to understand it -- 2 when it began and 7 when it ended.

    Here's an episode from season 5

    Awful opening.

    This is how most people under 40 remember Telly Savalas:


    I remember as a little kid how unusual it was to see a fairly young man with a completely bald head. Back then, it was Savalas, Mr. Clean, Gordon from Sesame Street and that was pretty much it.

    Then came Michael Jordan (for black guys) and Bruce Willis (for whites) and it sparked a bald revolution.

    There is a campaign to have a street in Duluth, MN named after Mr. Savalas:

    Telly Savalas lived in Duluth Mn.Telly Savalas paid taxes in Duluth Mn.Telly Savalas made advertisements for Duluth Mn.Telly Savalas needs a street named after him.


    He did a TV spot in which he speaks of his love for Duluth:

    Mr. Savalas wrote the spot:


    It was filmed in Glensheen Mansion:

    The house, the scene of one of Minnesota's highest-profile murder cases, is now called Glensheen. It's owned by the University of Minnesota and is open for popular tours of its historic interior and rambling grounds.


    Here ends your Minnesota history lesson for the day.
