Not many people know this, but there was a time when Bonanza ‘s Little Joe Cartwright attended seminary college. Apparently concerned that he was a bit too avidly embracing the spirit of the place, Timothy “Toots” LaRue, the chancellor of Dusty Trails Divinity, sent Joe back to Ponderosa after only one semester. This is the only known picture of Joe from that brief and somewhat incongruent chapter of his life.

More and more I'm communicating with my readers through my free (and ad-free) email newsletter, which is just a simple, direct and personal email from me that I send out every three weeks or so. If you would like to receive this email in your inbox, subscribe to it on my website, or by using the subscription box about halfway down the column on the right. I wouldn't think of using your email address for anything but my e-newsletter (to which you can always unsubscribe with the click of a button). Thanks, and looking forward to communicating with you in this more intimate way.
