Brian and Leon, will blow your mind with their witty and thorough knowledge of everything that you can put a price tag on. Listen every week on your local public radio station.

Synopsis:What about a baseball card that has Babe Ruth on one side and Johnny Bench on the other?  Are they tricking us?  Or maybe a painting someone brings to the show of cows in a pasture?  Are horses really worth more than cows?  All this and more on Value This.  (What would you expect?)

There are Places I Remember:

Montreal (Canada).  The second largest French speaking city in the world, home to Cirque du Soleil, the 1976 Summer Olympics, Expo 67, the International Jazz Festival, and great food, like the bagel, poutine, and smoked meat sandwiches.  There are great cathedrals, museums, and universities.  Leon has taught classes there but not at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel, where John Lennon wrote Give Peace a Chance, while in bed on June 1, 1969.


Saying of the Week

Have no fear of perfection.  You’ll never reach it.

Savidor Dali

Word of the Day

Surrealism (above or beyond reality, subconscious dreams and associations.  One of its main artists was Savidor Dali.)
