When acclaimed television producer Vince Gilligan handed writer and La Cañada resident George Mastras the script for a pilot called “Breaking Bad,” Mastras knew immediately he liked it. He was less sure, however, that it would ever make its way onto the silver screen. The pilot introduced the story of a 50-something high school chemistry teacher named Walter White who is struggling with the banalities of middle class American life. Diagnosed with terminal cancer and fearful of leaving his family unprovided for, he puts his chemistry skills to use and starts dealing crystal meth — not exactly the stuff of prime time network television.

In December 1970, 280,000 American troops remained in Vietnam. The scuttlebutt at Khe Shan, the isolated outpost eight miles from the Laotian border, was that the war was winding down. No one actually believed that. The Marines were supporting combat operations in preparation for a major offensive by South Vietnamese troops (ARVAN). The plan, Operation Lam Son 719, was to cut off the Ho Chi Minh trail in Laos and halt enemy troops and supplies infiltrating the South. This time we wouldn't be going since the Cooper Church amendment forbid any American forces in Laos and Cambodia.

Kim and Bill McComas moved to Sparr Heights 12 years ago when Bill was hired as an associate professor in science education at USC. The couple met when they were both teaching high school in Morristown, Penn. Bill taught a photography class in an adult evening school. Kim took the class while they were dating. Bill claims, "That sealed the deal." As we walked down the halls of the family home, I admired Bill's photographs. They lined the walls outside the bedrooms of the McComas children, Will, 11, and Emily, 9. Both children are students at Fremont Elementary School.
