Highway Patrol TV show title shot

21-50 to Headquarters: The classic cop show is back on the air. Here's how to watch it.

Mention "Highway Patrol" to anyone who grew up watching TV in the 1950s or 1960s, and chances are the immediate response is "10-4". Starring academy award winner Broderick Crawford as Dan Mathews, the gruff, intense chief of a state police force, Highway Patrol was produced from 1955 to 1959, rerun endlessly in the 1960s and 1970s, and popular in 71 countries.

The classic Highway Patrol image is fedora-topped Dan Mathews leaning against a black and white patrol car, holding a radio mic, barking "21-50 to headquarters!". The invariable response is "Headquarters by" (standing by). Radio code "10-4", sirens, and guns are sure to follow. Highway Patrol is fondly remembered because it is, well, unforgettable -- different, compelling, fascinating, and a TV pioneer.

Highway Patrol is no longer just memories -- it is back on the air across the U.S.A. See the end of this article for details.

Adult incontinence is common, yet it can be a difficult subject to discuss with family, friends, and even physicians.

Adult incontinence is much more prevalent in the United States than you might think. According to the National Association of Continence (NAFC, 2006), approximately 25 million adults in this country have experienced incontinence at some point in their lives. In fact, this number may be higher as most adults, especially men, won't admit or are embarrassed to discuss this condition with their healthcare provider, family, or friends. And 75-80 percent of those suffering incontinence are women.
