The Hills, Pt. 2

Here's a cute little Web site: Things Younger than John McCain. Among the things: Bugs Bunny, Spam, Teflon, Mount Rushmore. That reminds me that I saw North by Northwest (again) over the weekend, and although it's justifiably famous for several of its set pieces, the dialogue in that film is just aces. I especially liked when Cary Grant was hauled into the police station, stumbling drunk after wrecking a stolen Mercedes, and the doctor asks him, "Have you been drinking?" "Doctor," he says, "I am gassed."

Other things that are younger than John McCain: Buddy Holly, the atomic bomb, Gone With the Wind, M&M's, and, most incredibly of all, John McCain is older than Phil Niekro.
