Quizzo Tonight


We start at Lo Spiedo at 5:30 p.m., where guest host Slick Joe Moore will be filling in for Carl B Sure. I would go there to host myself but I know you savages at the Rendezvous would eat Slick Joe alive. You’re animals! But I still love ya, so come out to quizzo tonight at the Vous. I’ll be there.

Just gonna do one quiz after all. None of the teams who play twice a week showed early in the week so I’m gonna just do one quiz and spend the afternoon posting last weeks scores (I had jury duty Monday so I’m running a bit behind this week.)

On to Founding Fathers at 8:30 p.m. You know how we do. Hope to see ya tonight!

The pic above is of Galileo. On this date in 1633, he was forced by the Holy Office in Rome to take back his theory that the Sun was the center of the universe. He had pissed off the Pope, and so he had been called to Rome to defend himself. He was forced to recant the belief in heliocentrism. But like a 7th grader being reprimanded for something that he knew was bullshit, he muttered under his breath what he really thought. After he was forced to recant his heliocentric belief, Galileo quietly but audibly uttered, “And yet it moves.” (Though not in English of course.) He was put on house arrest, which he remained under for the rest of his life.

The painting is done by Justus Sustermans. He was the Medici court painter and considered the finest painter in Italy.
