  5. Beautiful, man. This was radical for 1967 – I saw from the You Tube notes that the reference to Mrs. Wallace and Cassius Clay (Muhammad Ali for you younguns) was originally Lena Horne, the first black movie star, and Sheriff Jim Clark of the Selma, Alabama infamy.
    btw, Lehrer was originally a Harvard-trained mathematician yet he never felt the need to spout of about this at every turn.
