PERRY MASON'S WEB OF LIES!
Globe|July 20, 2020
Raymond Burr invented wives & a tragic son to hide he was gay

RUGGED Raymond Burr, who skyrocketed to fame as TV’s super lawyer Perry Mason, was guilty of perjury — for lying about his secret double life as a homosexual!

A new HBO series paints the fictional lawyer as a seedy, boozing 1930s gumshoe, but six-foot-two, 350-pound Burr played the defense lawyer as a sharp-dressed straight shooter in the drama that ran from 1957 to 1966 and was closely based on author Erle Stanley Gardner’s hit mystery novels.

.243 WINCHESTER

The idea was simple enough: Friend Cole Bender from PROOF Research offered to rebarrel my Winchester Model 770 .243 Winchester, a rifle I hadn’t shot in years. When returned, I would have a heavy-barreled .243 Winchester to replace my beloved Remington 700 BDL Varminter that was sold to pay some emergency debt long ago forgotten.

G-Men return to The Queen City

Joe Judge’s team will be faced with a difficult test when they travel to Cincinnati to take on 2019 Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow and the Bengals. After finishing with the league’s worst record in his first season as a head coach, Zac Taylor now appears to have his team heading in the right direction. The Giants must put a lot of pressure on Burrow and keep him in the pocket in this matchup. The first overall pick in this year’s draft is having an impressive rookie season and has already torched plenty of defenses so far in 2020. Offensively, Daniel Jones needs to take advantage of the vulnerabilities in the Bengals’ secondary. This area of their defense is not exactly their strongest, so Jones should take some deep shots with Darius Slayton and Golden Tate. With Cincinnati drafting Burrow, it appeared as though veteran A.J. Green could be in position for a huge bounce-back season. However, Tyler Boyd has really emerged as the top receiving option in the Bengals’ offense. Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham must have a good game plan for taking Boyd away. Here are TGI’s keys to victory against Cincinnati:
