I usually respect the somber U.S.history topics on somber dates and mattress sales, such as the burning of Atlanta, Pearl Harbor, The Challenger Explosion, September 11, but the White House made me do this. I mean no disrespect for the casualties from the Civil War through the Obama Administration.
Circa: 1962 Google or Bing search Vaughn Meader, his career ended after JFK’s assassination. He was so much funnier in those pre-SNL, Stewart and Colbert days. Meader’s albums are still available on Amazon, ten years after his death. I have the original vinyl album.
Circa: 2013, yes this photo was taken today, 9-11-13 and I doubt anyone will use it as a comedy album cover, and they should ! When the WH released this as an official photo, I laughed and I laughed, who in the WH is old enough to remember 1962 ?
