As you are well aware, unless you have been in a tornado shelter for the last year, tonight is a star-studded night on the TNT Series Dallas as the cast and whole city of Dallas pay tribute to J.R. Ewing, a.k.a. Larry Hagman, who died in November. Mark Cuban, Jerry Jones and even Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings all have special guest appearances. I believe the funeral is at The Dallas Petroleum Club. On Pegasus, Brentney Hamilton offers us 9 ways to pay tribute to J.R. Ewing in honor of tonight’s show.
Meantime, I was up on the 19th floor of Museum Tower, which is the set for Pamela Barnes Ewing Barnes’ home. I stopped at Pamela’s desk and was shocked to see stacks of business reports from Barnes International sitting right there! Didn’t see any inside info on Ewing oil, however… maybe that will come out tonight? Now I have the inside info!
Here’s a great way to pay tribute to J.R. a.k.a. Larry Hagman: support the foundation he created last fall for underprivileged children in Dallas, The Larry Hagman Foundation:

Statement by Lisa Blue Baron, President of The Larry Hagman Foundation
about Larry Hagman Day
[Dallas, Texas] The Larry Hagman Foundation supports “Dallas” cast members in recognizing March 11th as Larry Hagman Day to pay tribute to one of the greatest actors of our time. As the iconic character JR Ewing, Larry Hagman made Dallas famous around the world, but not everyone knows that in addition to being a great actor, Larry was also a great philanthropist. I will always remember Larry for his optimism, kindness, and generosity.
Today especially, let us all honor Larry by recognizing the foundation that he created just last fall for underprivileged children in the local Dallas community. Larry founded The Larry Hagman Foundation to promote the educational benefits of theater, visual arts, dance and music and to fund organizations providing these instructional programs for low-income children.
Thanks to the ongoing support of Larry’s friends, cast members, and generous donors, The Larry Hagman Foundation continues to inspire children today, right here in Dallas, to fulfill their dreams.
Today is a special day to remember Larry, but his legacy will live on every day in our hearts. As Larry would say, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy, Feel Good!”
