It's at Florida International University in Miami.



Watching "Museum Secrets" on Smithsonian Channel.

Which DVD shall it be tonight:

"Animal House" or "Airplane!"?

PSA if you have Smithsonian Channel:

"The Legend of Leadbelly" is on at 8 pm est.

"It's a racket."

-- Al Capone, cautioning people to avoid investing in the stock market (1927, I believe). I guess Al knew a racket when he saw one.
