Thought for the Day

It's February 9th.

Forty-eight years ago, a Sunday night, 73 million people tuned into The Ed Sullivan Show. It was not any old show. It was a really big show. It opened looking like this:

Following the commercial, Sullivan returned to say five of the most famous words in popular culture:
"Ladies and gentleman...The Beatles!"

Paul McCartney got the first lead vocal, singing "All My Loving":
"Close your eyes, and I'll kiss you. Tomorrow I'll miss you. Remember I'll always be true. And then while I'm away, I'll write home every day. And I'll send all my loving to you."
The rest, of course, is history.
