What is unique about the thousands of caddies employed at China’s sprawling 12-course Mission Hills Resort?

They’re all women. Mission Hills is the world’s largest golf resort.
( emoticon emoticon emoticon Power to the women!)

Near the end of a Jackie Mason comedy routine on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, Sullivan gave the comedian a “wrap it up” gesture from off-camera. Mason waved it off; Sullivan mistakenly thought Mason’s wave was obscene … and that the viewers had seen it. Sullivan exploded backstage and canceled Mason’s six upcoming appearances. Mason filed a lawsuit, which was later dropped, and Sullivan invited Mason back to the show in 1966, and publicly apologized.
First African-American sitcom star: Ethel Waters on 1950’s Beulah. (She played a maid.)
