Last week on It’s Pronounced Jordan, we invigorated two classic “Vintage”-section stories—this one and this one—with the warm, freestylin’ repartee that envelops the Auburn Network studios every time Rich Perkins, Ron Anders, and I allow ourselves to get real. And don’t think the warmth fake or merely professional—Ron gave me a free Coke from Anders Bookstore when I graduated from Auburn. Now you know.
(We also talked about Trim: Shear Pleasure For Men.)

Not to demonstrate what a History geek I am, but George VI did not abdicate the throne. He became king when his brother Edward abdicated (so that Edward could marry Wallis Simpson, a diivorced American). George was relatively young when he died of cancer (60 years ago this week) and that is when Elizabeth became queen.
