It's interesting, and somewhat ironic, that 2017 is the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Public Broadcasting Act and the creation of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. In his remarks at the time, President Lyndon B. Johnson said, "It announces to the world that our nation wants more than just material wealth; our nation wants more than a 'chicken in every pot.' We in America have an appetite for excellence, too. While we work every day to produce new goods and to create new wealth, we want most of all to enrich man's spirit. That is the purpose of this act."

As I stood up to end our visit, Frank indicated he had one more question.
"You know those commercials for Cialis?" he asked. "Would that be all right for me to try?"
Here we go with the bathtubs again, I think to myself. Toned silver-hairs in side-by-side bathtubs on a deck somewhere looking out at the sunset.
Give me a break.
Over the back of the Florida basker,
over the froth of the Firth of Forth,
Up from Tahiti and Madagascar,
Lo, the sun walks north.
On today's date in 1784, an Italian violinist named Regina Strinasacchi gave the second of two concerts in Vienna, and had the good sense to commission a new work for the occasion from an up-and-coming young Austrian composer named Wolfgang Mozart.
