I'm older than JFK was when he was elected president, and when RFK and MLK were assassinated. King was only 39—that just astounds me how much he accomplished in such a short time.
Wow, had no idea King was so young. There was a serene maturity about the man that suggested anywhere from late thirties to early fifties.
Related to that generational bit a few days ago, King was Silent Gen (so was RFK).

One of only two 80s Twilight Zone episodes that I can recall watching*:

* The other is an adaptation of a Richard Matheson story about a couple being presented with a box that has a button in it. If they press it, they get a million dollars or something like that, but someone they don't know will die. Of course there's a twist at the end, but I won't spoil it.

MLK's later years, campaigning for fairer parking tariffs, and organising Wal-Mart boycotts, would have been his She's The Boss.

I have a dream that you will have the best sleep in years for the lowest price imaginable. No, the price isn't free at last, but it's pretty close. Come on down, we're just off exit 44 at I-80.

Holy fuck that's funny.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I've already mailed a screencap to:

Canada University of Hockey
c/o Whoever is in charge of H. Worm
Some Polar Bear Den or Whatever, Fordronto CRACKCRACK-CRACK
America's Hat

I assume your postal service, which is just mounties going around and handing out letters, will receive the letter since I shoved it off in a canoe earlier today.

IMCT is a great secret. Isn't Flex some kind of senator or something?

Speaking of, did y'all see the Colbert Report where a Colorado town was legalizing Drone Hunting? I was like "please be Flex, please be Flex"

That's Dr. Senator to you!

It's always sad when the hunters become the hunted. :cry:
