Message:  I'm thinking you might be Ernest T.Bass, LL. -- "a bothersome troublemaker, fond of throwing rocks."

I'm thinking Bill Smith is probably Howard Sprague. He was so intelligent and debonair.

I think Dave is Floyd the barber.

Clearly, Karen is Juanita the flirt.

Figure out who the rest of the porch crowd is. From Wikipedia:
