Daddy Duke

Forty years ago this week, John Wayne was knocked unconscious . . . by an eight-year-old girl.  His daughter Marissa.  He was teaching her how to golf, and she caught him with a nine iron and knocked him out cold.  Good thing he was teaching her golf instead of something even more dangerous, like fishing, or he could have been killed.

We remember John Wayne for many things he said, the roles he played, and the hours of enjoyment he gave us through his life on the silver screen.  But we often forget that John Wayne was also a father.  And from all reports, a pretty good one.
