Quote by~Henry James
American-born author and literary critic of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
"Do not mind anything that anyone tells you about anyone else.
Judge everyone and everything for yourself.”

Fact
Abbott and Costello
"The Abbott and Costello Show" premiered on this date in 1952. Bud Abbott and Lou Costello made 52 half-hour films for television incorporating many of their best burlesque routines. Their original names were William Alexander Abbott and Louis Francis Cristillo. After their final film, Dance with Me, Henry (1956), Abbott and Costello went their separate ways.
William (Bud) Abbott and Lou Costello (born Louis Francis Cristillo) performed together as Abbott and Costello, an American comedy duo whose work in radio, film and television made them the most popular comedy team during the 1940s. Thanks to the endurance of their most popular and influential routine, "Who's on First?"— whose rapid-fire word play and comprehension confusion set the preponderant framework for most of their best-known routines—the team is, as a result, featured in the Baseball Hall of Fame. (Contrary to popular belief, however, the duo was not inducted into the Hall).
