I was listing to a podcast this weekend and it referenced the County Seat, that old clothing store that used to be popular in malls.
Heard a story on NPR driving back from a friend’s house about a woman whose maiden name was Hitler. She joyfully told the reporter how as a child and teen, no one ever called her by her first name, they just referred to her as Hitler and it never bothered her. She talked about how the name is dying out as most Hitler families are giving birth to girls and others have changed their name. When she and her husband were choosing names for a baby, he really wanted the middle name to be Hitler but the husband wasn’t supportive. She also spoke of a time talking to a psychologist with the last name Phobia. When introduced to her the first time, she laughed and then apologized explaining she knows what it’s like to have a unique last name. The psychologist asked what was her name and after she answered, the psychologist doubled over in laughter.

A lot of people have firm convictions but often don’t attempt to study or know why they have those convictions. I’ve been trying to reason why I feel certain convictions for some things and not others, and be able to reasonably explain in a concise manner why I do.
One of my major weakness is that I lack the ability to see and comprehend the big picture.
The older I get, the more I realize I’m not very intelligent.
I enjoy watching the CBS sitcom ‘The Big Bang Theory’ but had no idea there was going to be a prequel –
After an extensive casting search, the half-hour comedy has found its young Dr. Sheldon Cooper in ‘Big Little Lies’ actor Iain Armitage, as well as Sheldon’s young mother with Zoe Perry (‘Scandal’) set to play Mary Cooper, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. The comedy will center around the young version of Emmy winner Jim Parsons’ Sheldon. The comedy has been described as Malcolm in the Middle but with a young version of Sheldon.
Here’s one thing which really stood out: For probably the first half or so of your TV career, you stayed away from politics — Because Carson was my model. I’ll tell you the other thing: All of that changed because of Jon Stewart.
Clickbait for loyal reader Ben who I’m sure knows at least half of these
