“Don’t be rude!” — Frost to President Nixon during live TV interview, 1977

Boy, I remembered that TV interview really well. I thought Frostbite got real balls to interview Tricky Dick the way he did. I honestly thought the pair of them would literally have it out in front of the cameras — in Frost’s signature red socks.

(And whatever may have been said about Robot Nixon, he as president of a world superpower got real balls to let anyone interview him the way it turned out and let it carried on.)

Srsly, they don’t make people like the pair of them anymore.

Sir David Frost died of a heart attack on board the cruise ship M.S. Queen Elizabeth on Sunday Saturday, 31 Aug 2013.

First Man on the Moon

5 August 1930 – 25 August 2012 (aged 82)


NBC News accidentally declared Neil Young dead, not Armstrong. Neil Young was an English footballer (soccer player) who died last year, aged 66.

We would’ve thought the epithet “First Man on the Moon” would be more than an obvious clue as to who was who. Clearly the NBC newscrew are the last people on Earth …

Get the news out first,
But get it right first.
