The expert

Watch this bright young man deliver his school report on Houdini like an expert. Bravo!

Watching this I'm reminded of another youngster who delivered his school report on Houdini back when Gerald Ford was President. Sixth grade, Sunny Brea Elementary, Mrs. Buss' classroom. I'm sure I didn't do it as well as this bright lad, and I certainly didn't nail the facts as well as he does, but that day I discovered yammering about Houdini was something I loved to do. And I'm still at it today.


  1. "Jean Houdean, he INSTANTLY became my idol!" lol. The kid did an excellent job I'll give him that.

  2. It's curious that he says Bess was performing as a "singing clown" in Coney Island. Wonder where he got that from? Something about that rings a bell.

  3. I like the teacher's comment in the corner there. Ace.

  4. I know, isn't that wonderful. It really meant a lot of me. The madness of this blog may have started right there. :p
