Then we drove home (3 short blocks) and watched In The Heat Of The Night, the great 1967 racial bias / police procedural. Sidney Poitier is the black Philly homicide expert and Rod Steiger is the white small town sheriff who doesn't want Poitier's help (at first) in solving a murder.
Ray Charles sings the title track, which was a hit song at the time.

To title my blog "In the Heat of the Night"?
Outside it's twelve. Fahrenheit.
For you Celsius-speaking folk, that's minus eleven. Brrr.
