It’s getting better all the time

My grandmother, who saw Lindbergh’s plane flying over Ireland on the way to Paris, used to say things like this all the time. She was always telling me how bad it was in the old days. They had to walk down the hill, just to get water. Then they had to carry it up. And don’t even get her started on the horrors of inkwells and fountain pens, and the mess they’d make. She never understood why people didn’t appreciate airplanes, bic pens and indoor plumbing.

And, speaking of new and amazing things – how about korean BBQ tacos? (found through Twitter)

    My mistake. I thought this was Jim Cramer. I apologize to Louis CK. Probably a sign that there are too many middled-aged balding white guys with goatees.

    He does look like Cramer, but he wasn’t hysterical and banging stuff around the set, so I just assumed it was the other goateed guy. He’s on ok stand-up comedian, but he had a show a while back that wasn’t all that good.
