"The first words I spoke in the original phonograph, Mary had a little lamb. It s fleece was white as snow. And everywhere that Mary went, the lamb was sure to go. " - THOMAS EDISON (reciting a familiar nursery rhyme. He invented the phonograph, the light bulb, the motion picture projector, the stock market ticker, the alkaline storage battery and hundreds of other things.) "The Distinguished Flying Cross upon Colonel Charles A. Lindberg" (He made the first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean on May 20, 1927. He took off from Roosevelt Field on Long Island, New York and landed near Paris, France. The flight took thirty three and a half hours. Of course, he had to be awake the entire time, and alert enough to pilot a plane.) "Today, paniced investors ordered their brokers to sell at whatever the price in the stock market crashed." (In October, 1929, an over-valued stock market, with many owning shares purchased "on margin" or with borrowed money, crashed. Numerous men committed suicide rather than face bankruptcy. In response, the U.S. Government imposed stringent rules on the buying and selling of stocks. These make it less likely that a similar catastrophic devaluation could occur now. The insurance companies began to exclude suicide as an acceptable cause of death for life insurance policies and/or wrote in a two year waiting period before benefits could be paid.) "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." - PRESIDENT FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT (From his first Inaugural Address, 3/4/33. In the depths of the Great Depression, the pessimism of the population and especially the business community kept things bad. Decisions based on a gloomy outlook caused things to get even worse. In that respect, the mood and expectation of bad times became a self-fulfilling prophecy.) "Horrific place, ladies and gentlemen, the smoke and the flames now, ooh, the humanity" (Live radio account of the fire and crash of the German airship "Hindenburg." It happened 5/6/37 on the eve of the Second World War in Lakehurst, New Jersey. The Hindenburg was the largest airship ever built. It was filled with an enormous quantity of hydrogen. Hydrogen had two big advantages over helium. It had greater lifting potential and was much cheaper. Unfortunately, it is one of the most flammable substances in the world. Helium could be used to put fires out. Since that disaster all airships have been filled with hydrogen. This luxurious craft had just come from Europe, making the trip across the Atlantic Ocean much faster than any ship. It was the pride of Nazi Germany. It s loss was a blow to the morale of the German engineers. The German public never heard much about it. The exact cause of the fire and crash has never been determined.) "Now, with the help and support of the woman I love." - KING EDWARD VIII (of England) (Speech on 12/11/36, after he had announced that he was abdicating the throne of England to marry Bessie Wallis Warfield Simpson Spencer, an American socialite) "Urging the people to evacuate the city as Martians approach." (This is from the "War of the Worlds" radio broadcast. This episode of the "Mercury Theater on the Air" was aired on Halloween eve, 10/30/38. The story was written by Orson Wells. Only at the beginning of the radio show was it mentioned that this was fiction. People tuning in later had no idea it was not real. They thought that the Earth was being invaded by aliens from Mars, causing a multitude of suicides.) "Never to go to war with one another again" ". . .Juden. . ." ADOLPH HITLER (speaking in German, referring to the Jews) "This country is at war with Germany." PRESIDENT WOODROW WILSON (address to Congress 4/2/17, bringing the United States into World War I) "December 7, 1941, (the Japanese have attacked Pearl Harbor) a date which will live in infamy." FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT "This is Bob Command performance Hope telling each Nazi that s in Russia today that, "Crimea doesn t pay. "- BOB HOPE (a popular comedian who often went overseas to entertain troops stationed abroad) "I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth." - LOU GEHRIG (speaking at Yankee Stadium as he retired from baseball in 1939. He had developed a disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis which causes spinal paralysis. It is commonly referred to as the "Lou Gehrig s disease.") "President Franklin D. Roosevelt stricken late today." (On 4/12/45 he died of a cerebral hemorrhage (stroke). "Who s on first." "Yeah" "The fellow s name" "Who" - BUD ABBOTT & LOU COSTELLO (a famous comedy skit) "The world will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima." Abbott: "Who Is on first." Costello: "What are you asking me for?" - ABBOTT & COSTELLO "Reports from the new Germany tell of horrors leading to the total extermination of the Jews of Europe." "An iron curtain has descended across the continent of Europe." - SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL (British Prime Minister, 3/5/46 describing the beginning of the "Cold War" in which Russia (USSR) dominated Eastern Europe, and isolated it from the West. "Jackie Robinson goes to bat for the first time in a Major League." (In 1947 he was the first Negro player in Major League Baseball.) "Old soldiers never die. They just fade away." - GENERAL DOUGLAS MACARTHUR (Address to a joint session of Congress, 4/19/51) "Lucy" "Ahhhhhhh!" - LUCILLE BALL AND DESI ARNEZ (one of the first very popular comedies on television) "It was a little cocker spaniel dog, and our little girl, Tricia, the six year old, named it Checkers " - RICHARD NIXON (On 9/23/52, as Vice President of the United States, he gave a speech on radio and television. He had been accused of improperly taking gifts. One of the gifts was a small dog.) "Are you a member of the Communist Party?" - SENATOR JOSEPH MCCARTHY (In 1950-51 he held hearings in Congress in which he accused first and investigated later. Many lives were ruined, especially in the entertainment industry. His counsel was a then-little-known member of the House of Representatives named Richard Nixon.) "Oh, a cop, eh. Woo, woo, woo." - THE THREE STOOGES "Or have you ever been a member of the Communist Party?" - SENATOR JOSEPH MCCARTHY "A blast from the past! A blast from the past! A blast from the past!" "Baby, you re the greatest." - JACKIE GLEASON (from "The Honeymooners," another popular comedy from the earliest days of television) "From Sun Recording artist, Elvis Presley" - STEVE ALLEN (introducing Elvis on his variety show) "I d like to thank all, all the wonderful folks, and I d like to thank you, too." - ELVIS PRESLEY "Three young singers were killed today in the crash of a light plane." (This referred to the deaths of early stars of rock and roll, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, J.D. Richardson (The Big Bopper). Don McClain wrote the song "American Pie" about this tragedy.) "American bandstand. And now, here he is, the star of our show, Dick Clark." "Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country." - JOHN F. KENNEDY (Inaugural address, January 20, 1961) "They re standing up, waiting to see if Maris is going to hit number 61" (Announcer at ballpark as Roger Maris stepped up to the plate for his turn at bat) "Godspeed, John Glenn." - MISSION CONTROL (on 2/20/62 as he became the first American to orbit the earth. It was spoken again in 1998 when he returned, having been a U.S. Senator) "Happy birthday, Mr. President." - MARILYN MONROE (Apparently intoxicated, singing "Happy Birthday" at the party at Madison Square Garden.) "Wondering how and why Marilyn Monroe died." (on 8/5/62, from an overdose of sleeping pills) "Something has happened in the motorcade. President Kennedy died at 1:00 p.m. Central Standard Time" - WALTER CRONKITE (confirming the assassination in Dallas, Texas on 11/22/63) "Lee Harvey Oswald was shot." (His death at the hands of Jack Ruby prevented any clear resolution of this crime. Numerous conspiracy theories have evolved because of this lack of information. When you see notorious criminals going to and from jail, with armed guards, wearing body armor themselves, this is where it started. As much as many would like to see these animals die, protecting them until the judicial process is completed is common practice.) "I have a dream (Really?) that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." - MARTIN LUTHER KING (At the Civil Rights March of March 20, 1967 in Washington D.C.)
