Clair - Gilbert OSullivan Proof that today's world isn't as friendly and trusting as it once was: Gilbert O'Sullivan's 1972 hit song Clair is now considered controversial in some circles because some folks perceive the lyrics as pedophilic. Nothing could be further from the truth. The song was written by O'Sullivan for the daughter of his manager Gordon Mills. O'Sullivan often babysat Clair Mills and each grew very fond of the another. Nothing creepy. Nothing perverted. Yet that is how some people perceive this song today, despite what the now-middle-aged Clair says today. What a shame. I think it's a lovely song. That is the real Clair Mills in the video with O'Sullivan.

Ampersand - The 27th Letter of the Alphabet There are 26 letters in the English alphabet, right? That's only the modern count. For many years the ampersand was considered the 27th. Nineteenth-century text books almost always had the ampersand listed as an additional letter. According to scholars, the ampersand was created by combining the letters E and T, which forms the French word for "and": "et". Today is it considered bad form to write an ampersand in place of the word "and" in any scholarly work. It survives mostly in business names such as Barnes & Noble. The word ampersand comes from a corruption of the phrase "and per se and" that concluded the recitation of the alphabet in the 19th century.

Don Drysdale Warns Greg Brady About Pro Baseball Some lessons from old TV sitcoms are timeless. Some aren't. In this clip from a 1970 episode of the Brady Bunch (titled The Dropout), recently retired superstar pitcher Don Drysdale warns Greg Brady that being a pro ballplayer isn't all it's cracked up to be. Considering what the average MLB player earned back then, he had a point. Today however...

JFK and Jackie on Home - 1957 Home was an NBC daytime program billed as the "weekday women's magazine of the air." It was hosted by Arlene Francis during its three-year run from 1954 to 1957. Created by Home magazine, it was basically a follow-up to NBC's Today show. In this clip from an April 1957 episode, Arlene interviews Senator John F. Kennedy and his wife Jackie, although the focus is more on how the latter copes with being the wife of a U.S. senator. This clip shows what is supposed to be a typical morning for Jackie: walking the family dog, shopping, going to the dry cleaners, etc. At the end of the clip JFK offers some advice that rings true 58 years later.

Exhumation of President Taylor - 1991 President Zachary Taylor became the second American chief executive to die in office when he succumbed to gastro-intestinal problems on July 9, 1850 at age 65. Known for generally having robust health, Taylor had been ill for five days with severe stomach cramps and diarrhea. The cause may have been Taylor's overindulging in cherries covered in iced milk following a Fourth of July ceremony on the site where the Washington Monument was going to be erected. Doctors tried to cure the president with blood-letting and laxatives, but to no avail. The cause of Taylor's death was officially listed as "cholera morbus"--which apparently was an all-purpose answer whenever someone died suddenly from digestive problems in the middle of the 19th century. There was no autopsy. The dead president's body was preserved in ice for five days but never embalmed. More than 140 years later a historian named Clara Rising claimed Taylor had actually been poisoned by arsenic, perhaps by political enemies. (Taylor, despite being a slaveholder, was an outspoken pro-Union man. He had threatened to use the army to quash any secessionist movements.) Rising's compelling arguments--plus her willingness to pay $1200 in fees--persuaded officials in Kentucky to exhume Taylor's body from his crypt and perform modern scientific tests on it. The exhumation was carried out on June 18, 1991 with about 200 curious onlookers watching silently from a respectful distance. Modern forensic examination of Taylor's fingernails, sideburns, and even pubic hair showed no signs of arsenic poison whatsoever. Taylor was re-interred alongside his wife at Zachary Taylor National Cemetery in Louisville, KY. Today the medical community believes that the purgatives that Taylor was given by his physician to cleanse his system may have contained mercury which may have hastened the president's demise.
