I hadn’t realized last night/this morning that today, 22 November, is Terry Gilliam’s birthday, so please join me in wishing him many happy returns–and a couple (“many” is too much to hope for) projects that actually get completed.

22 November 1963 is the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, an event that has receded into ancient history even though for years its memory was as traumatic as that of Sepember 11. It is also the day before the premiere of Doctor Who, so I’ll mark that anniversary here. Yes, I am already waiting for the Christmas special.
