RIP--Merv Griffin

Merv Griffin, long time talk show host and entertainment entrepreneur, died at 82 of prostate cancer. To illustrate how long he has been in television, I'm posting this YouTube of Merv Griffin singing "Lovely Bunch of Coconuts" and doing an abominably fake English accent. I'm not sure what year this was broadcast.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
