Tom Lehrer is 85

On 9 April, Tom Lehrer turned 85 years old.

He's probably not as well known anymore in the USA as he seems to be in the UK, which is unfortunate.  He has made me laugh for many years now.

Many more to both of us.

Here's an appreciation of Lehrer on his 85th on BBC Radio 4.  He is remarkably bright for an octogenarian.

I can't possibly say which Lehrer song is my favorite, but recently I've been humming "Alma," about the astoundingly lucky-in-love Alma Maria Mahler Gropius Werfel.
