On this day in 1964, "Yeah Yeah Yeah" music first caught the western hemisphere by storm. John, Paul, George & Ringo, collectively known as the Beatles, first appeared on "The Ed Sullivan Show". It was a Sunday. As everyone already knows by now, that one event spearheaded what turned out to be a major cultural revolution. All sorts of bad things can be said of the kinds of undeniably poisonous garbage the sixties have left us with, but the music, especially that of the Fab Four, simply can't possibly be matched. Last night I finished Tom Woods' book & went back to "Emma". The print in his book is much larger & double spaced so it's a lot easier on my eyes. Prof. Woods' new book, "Meltdown", about our current economic crisis, is due to be available on Monday. I don't have to be bothered with any lectoring this weekend so I can completely relax about that. Mary Anne called last night with all the usual stuff. She's visiting Mimi. I just found out on Facebook that yesterday would have been Ronald (the Gipper) Reagan's ninety eighth birthday.
