    Did you see how I learned about it?  

    Studs ended up on a commercial classical radio state (OK, one of the best in the country?) because he was politically incorrect when political correctness was enforced.

    Whenever I visit castles or palaces I ask the guides about how many people it took to maintain the place where  those people lived.  I have never really gotten a good answer to that question.

    A note about family history.

    I was on the floor of a living room in a suburb of Chicago watching Armstrong on the moon.  My grandfather, born in Chicago to parents from what is today the Czech Republic, was there.  When he was born, the horse was the major means of transportation.  I think about the changes in his life.  Amazing!
