Happy Belated Birthday, Mr. Lehrer

On Thursday, it was Tom Lehrer’s 80th birthday. Google noted it. Jeff Jarvis noted it. I just found out.

I have an affinity for Lehrer. My mother introduced me to him. We had a few of his albums growing up. New Math, Pollution, The Element Song, etc. He even wrote for The Electric Company, a favorite of mine at the time.

Happy birthday, Mr. Lehrer. My all-time favorite Lehrer song (and I don’t speak in superlatives often) is the above. Enjoy!
