    “She must have a beautiful mother.”

    I will always be the cutest one in the family. It’s not even close. “Don’t even try,” I always tell them.

    Thanks so much for all your kind comments!

    What a nice surprise. I didn’t think the Professor would use the second video so soon (and LI has an exclusive on the third one if the producer ever allows it to be uploaded to the web … it’s full of amazing dancers and filmed on the Santa Monica Pier, which they rented for the day).

    Seeing this brought a big smile. Yesterday was a bad day. A lady who worked for my sisters for over 25 years and who became a close family friend passed away unexpectedly.

    At such times I count my blessings. I live in a free country. I have a wife who grudgingly tolerates me. I have children who occasionally show me affection (except Emily’s 11-year-old little sister, who is already a teenager in attitude and can barely muster a “Good Morning” to her dad these days without prodding bordering on threat of grounding).

    And, of course, I have found a community of wonderful people at Legal Insurrection, who also love the things I do. Young people such as the writers the Professor mentors here, as well as my children, give me hope for the future. The dark and confused aspects of human nature manifest in contemporary leftism must be turned back … and they will be the ones to do it!

    Back to music and trivia. This second song was written by the boy singing, along with the son of the Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart (his mom being one of the ladies of Bananarama). Emily helped them translate it into Japanese, I believe.

    Emily will turn 21 this month. She shares the same birthday as Paul McCartney. Our son shares the same birthday as Ringo Starr. The Beatles came to America on February 7, LukeHandCool’s birthday.

    So when Luke’s 11-year-old daughter, who is growing up way too fast and recently sees greeting her dad with “Good Morning” as an unbearable chore, asks, “What did the Beatles do on my birthday?” Luke tenderly responds,

    “Absolutely nothing. I don’t think they even like you.”

    LukeHandCool (who wants at least one more child and who doesn’t think it would be an unreasonable request to have labor induced on John’s or George’s birthday)

    Thanks, Joan!

    Ms. Cassandra,

    Well, George Martin, Pete Best, and some of the original Quarrymen are still alive … don’t know if that would be too obscure.

    LHC (who met Ed Sullivan in 1965 as a young boy … and who, when Luke’s mother politely told Mr. Sullivan that we watched his show every Sunday night, came that close to saying, “No we don’t Mom. We always watch Disney’s Wonderful World of Color,” but Luke’s Mom gave Luke a look and Luke understood it to mean, “I know what you’re thinking of saying young man … don’t you dare!”).
