Speaking of "porting around"
On this very day 99 years ago, the very first subway, the IRT (Interboro Rapid transit) opened in New York City.
Also on this day, in 1947, You Bet Your Life, the Groucho Marx radio game/entertainment show, premeired on the ABC Radio Network.
Is that a coincidence, or what?
Oh, one more thing: Ruby Dee, John Cleese, and Ralph Kiner all share October 27th birthdays. Fran Lebowitz, too.
