breaking history

Quote of the Moment
"Those who do not understand history should not be permitted to make it."
--Carl Dershem, via the sig of Danny Sichel, Very appropriate of our current time I think.

Fruit of the Moment
Yikes! Bananas Split, maybe within a decade?

Link of the Moment
Adweek on the best 20 ad campaigns of the past 20 years. I don't know why I love this stuff so much. Heh... Bartles & Jaymes, "We thank you for your support." Hadn't thought of that for a looong time, but it was pretty great.

News of the Moment
Space Shuttle launches with the first Israeli astronaut. (Can Mel Brook's vision of "Jews in Space" from History of the World be far away?) Anyway, security was extra tight for this one...what a big target, in more than one sense of the word.
