    Mayor Wilson was sponsoring an initiative to replace the clock. She and the Hill Valley Preservation Society felt it should be left as it was. I always thought it odd they were raising money to convince the city council to not spend the money.

    Haha. Okay. Been a minute since I've seen it, I guess.

    Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated. Not only am I not dead, I am not notable either.

    You'll be watching him for years. I expect that his shows will be syndicated and run again and again, since people loved the show.

    Yep. Great show, interesting, smart, family-friendly without that smarmy exclusionary feel that often accompanies "family-friendly".

    Old ones float around the internet quite a bit too. My wife and I watch old ones regularly. It actually lead to an argument over whether or not I got a final Jeopardy question right or wrong. The answer was something like these countries are the two biggest gold producers in the world. I said "Canada and Russia." The correct answer in the show was "Canada and the USSR." I contend that since I didn't know when the show was broadcast, it's the same thing.

    Tommy Heinsohn, longtime Celtics player, coach, and broadcaster. A ubiquitous voice in the Boston sports scene. One of those people you never met but felt like an uncle.

    This fucking year, man....

    Yeah, he was 'notable' for the wrong reasons. Whilst I do not wish ill on anyone, no matter how evil they are, here's hoping that the families of those whom he murdered can finally get closure.

    Fantastic in the air... so long as he was using his hand to knock the ball into the net.

    Curses, foiled again.

    Sorry Iain, somehow, I just didn't see your post. I hadn't had any coffee yet.
