3-2-1 Contact!

It’s funny how television programs from childhood can embed themselves in the unconscious. I watch the 3-2-1 Contact intro and it’s as if the last 20 years never happened. I remember every snippet of the montage: the water drop, the kissed baby, the frog, the trampoline, everything.

Trecherous Memory

Public Radio hosts Robert Krulwich and Ira Glass talk about a moment that Robert remembers with his wife when she had a brief encounter with Jacqueline Onassis. Robert remembers it completely differently than his wife, Tamar. It’s funny because I could see myself doing the same thing as Robert.

Memory is a slippery thing, not to be trusted. It’s a wonder that we can make any use of it at all.
