"I bet you can’t make an entire science video about goats," they said.

"It will never work," they said.

They were wrong.

Enjoy this mid-week blend of science and silliness from It’s Okay To Be Smart and share with your goat-loving friends!

Sharing because goats.

I took Tas and Adam to Harbaugh’s and the waitress remembered me #addict (at Harbaugh’s Cafe)

I’m not in this picture, but I’m just out of frame. Thanks, Erin! Not for cutting me out of the picture but for letting me sleep on your air mattress for a few days.

THE RIGHT TO COMEDIC EXPRESSION?

This week is the 45th Anniversary of the termination of Tom and Dick Smothers from CBS.  According to court documents, on April 3, 1969, CBS terminated their contract with Smothers Brothers, ending the successful run of the Smothers Brothers’ Comedy Hour.  The Brothers responded by filing suit in the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, California, complaining that CBS’s “purpose and intent…was to impose a censorship over the content of the material in the programs…although [they] knew that the content was expression entitled to protection under the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.”

Their case was not universally supported, as evidenced by a letter from Maude Lobdell of Loma Linda, California, filed in the case.  ”I hope you lose all suits…Your show needed to be censored,” she complained, “You offend.”

The Brothers won their legal battle, and opened the door for contemporary political comedians such as John Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

This case is held by the National Archives at Riverside in our holdings of the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California (Los Angeles).

Writers don’t write from experience, although many are hesitant to admit that they don’t. …If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.

It’s all so clear now

I work at a 117 year old hotel. Guests often ask if its haunted. I’ve recently taken to telling them we used to think so but it turned out just to be Old Man Johnson in a mask trying to scare us off.
I started that because my old goto response (which I still use on new hires) would have eventually gotten me fired:
"Is this place haunted?" They ask.
"Yeah," I say. "It’s built on an ancient Indian burial ground?"
They ask “Really?!” or just stare at me.
"Oh yeah. But don’t worry. The whole country is."
Then we don’t talk anymore and I get sad.
