We will all go together when we go...

I had heard of Tom Lehrer, even had a couple of his songs, thanks to vovat. What I didn't know was that Lehrer was most active in the 1950s and 60s. I literally gaped at this. It hadn't even occurred to me that he might have belonged to a generation several decades before my own --- not even slightly. The two songs I had of his were 'Smut' and 'New Math'. To me, these were very "modern" songs.

Huh. The things you learn. This is like discovering Bill Bailey's real name is Mark all over again. The number of things I do not know are legion.
