Eddie Albert of "Green Acres" fame and his son, Edward Albert, recently teamed up to guest-star on the syndicated sci-fi series "Time Trax."

He said it makes him look like a buffoon."

My recent lament about being overlooked again as one of America's 10 best-dressed men has brought an enlightening letter from actor Eddie Albert.
