Emilio Lizardo. Wasn't he on TV once?
You're thinking of Mr. Wizard.
Emilio Lizardo is a top scientist, dumkopf.
So was Mr. Wizard!

What are we memorializing? I looked up John Lithgow. He appears to still be alive.
Don Herbert, TV's Mr. Wizard, died Tuesday at the age of 89
Here was a guy who got multiple generations of children interested in and excited about science. One of those people I wish I could have thanked in person while I had the chance.
I remember him! But was he still on TV when you were a kid?
He had a show on Nickelodeon in the 80s, which is why I think it's great that he taught more than one generation.
A most perfect memorial. He would've liked this, I think.

Fine selection of source material. I give it a 9.4.

Mr. Wizard certainly was a major influence on me and my geeky ways. I was so jealous of the kids that got to be on the show with him, imagining that they spent all their free time hanging out in his lab freezing things and blowing other things up.
And I agree that BB makes a fine tribute to his memory...

so there's this girl, michelle collins. She is funny and makes funny blogs. Maybe you know them. a recent post on her You Can't make it Up
blog had a comic with a kitten that says "I am murdered" and it made me think of cat town. Also she likes pics of animals dressed up, so I sent her a link to Cat Town.
apparently she also writes the VH1 Best Week Ever Blog and now there is a cat town link on there.
maybe I can say something later but
