Info Post
This vintage TV Guide cover sports a nice Six Million Dollar Man graphic by artist Bob Peak (and the more I look at it, the more I'm convinced that Peak did, indeed, also paint THIS Man From Atlantis cover).

For those of you too young to remember, the "Paper Panic" that the headline references was a non-existent toilet paper shortage that Johnny Carson joked about one night during his monologue on The Tonight Show. The next day, millions of viewers went out and bought up all the TP they could get their hands on... leading to a real shortage!

Ah... the 70s.
