Oh, you’re gonna shoot me?  –  Robert Redus, last words

Behold the power of prior planning:  despite being in New Orleans since Wednesday and having a horrible sinus headache yesterday, I still managed to get this Links column done on time.  The first video is the Beatles’ Christmas record for 1966; these were sent to members of their fan club every year from 1963 to 1969, but this one is IMHO the best of the lot.  Everything above it was provided by Jesse Walker, the second video was provided by my cat and the links between them were provided by Eugene Volokh (“Dalek”), Radley Balko  (“metadata”), Grace (“suicide” and “sarcasm”), Mike Siegel (“Shakespeare”),  Cop Block (“body slam”), Popehat  (“eventually”), and Mike Riggs (“together”).
