Yes, less than a dozen letters to the FCC would raise a wave of bullshit on the show/station/network.

We might recall that it was on this date in 1999 that the Russian Duma (its legislature) voted 273-1 to pass an animal rights bill that prohibited Russians from eating their “animal companions”– their pets. Shortly thereafter the newly-elected President of Russia, Vladimir Putin, vetoed the bill.

12-2-1942 – “…the Italian Navigator has just landed in the New World”.
Actually it was Enrico Fermi in a tent on a squash court under the stands of the University of Chicago’s Stagg Field.

12-2-1957 - the Shippingport Atomic Power Station, reached criticality.

The bust of Nefertiti was found by Ludwig Borchardt.

Akhenaten found Nefertiti's bust () much, much earlier.

January 7, 1948

Quote:
On January 7, 1948, 25-year-old Captain Thomas F. Mantell, a Kentucky Air National Guard pilot, died in the crash of his F-51 Mustang fighter, after being sent in pursuit of an unidentified flying object (UFO). The event was among the most publicized early UFO incidents.
This is pretty much Franklin's only claim to fame of any sort. After Johnny Cash's wedding, and of course, The Digr.

Mantell's plane crashed about three - four miles from my house. Of course, my house wasn't here yet.

For the record, I am not a little green man. Promise.

Sounded to me like some mornings you were a little green, man.
