Let me warn you, and let me warn the nation, against the smooth evasion that says ‘Of course we believe these things. We believe in social security. We believe in work for the unemployed. We believe in saving homes. Cross our hearts and hope to die, we believe in all these things! But we do not like the way the present Administration is doing them! Just turn them over to us. We will do all of them; we will do more of them; we will do them better; and — most important of all — the doing of them will not cost anybody anything.

FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT, during an address to the Democratic State Convention in Syracuse, NY on September 29, 1936.

A lovely little gem dug up by The Daily Show.

Goddamn Tesla Museum Success of the Day: At last, Nikola Tesla will finally have his due. Last week, comedy site The Oatmeal spearheaded a campaign to purchase the New York property of the inventor’s last laboratory and turn it into a museum.
According to The Oatmeal Facebook page,

Someone jumped in at the last minute and donated $33,333. WE JUST HIT OUR GOAL: $873,169! With the matching grant from NY state, this puts us at $1.7 million raised in 6 days!

An impressive feat to say the least, and the least that could be done to recognize one of the great pioneers of the electronic era.

This is the saddest story about a man and a rabbit I’ve ever heard.

Orson Welles performing the “Broomstick Suspension” magic trick with Lucille Ball during the filming of the I Love Lucy episode, “Lucy Meets Orson Welles” (1956) 
“I’ve never had a friend in my life who wanted to see a magic trick, you know. I don’t know anybody who wants to see a magic trick. So I do it professionally; it’s the only way I get to perform.
I went once to a birthday party for [MGM boss] Louis B. Mayer with a rabbit in my pocket which I was going to take out of his hat. On came Judy Garland and Danny Kaye and Danny Thomas and everybody you ever heard of and then Al Jolson sang for two hours and my rabbit was peeing all over me, you know. And the dawn was starting to rise over the Hillcrest Country Club as we said goodnight to Louis B. Mayer and nobody’d asked me to do a magic trick. So the rabbit and I went home.”
-Welles, in the 1982 documentary The Orson Welles Story
