This week, a very famous media personality turned 68. This man is the host of a long-running, influential program which has gained fame throughout America and has developed a following of millions. While his program is scorned by many for its "elite subject matter," as well as the host's sometimes-abrasive personality, it's obviously a classic. Many fans dream of appearing on this man's show, and a scant few have made it - and unfortunately, most of those lucky few have been humiliated in front of millions. In short, it's one of the best shows out there, and the host should be respected for the institution that he's built.
Of course, I could only be speaking of one man:
Mr. Trebek turned 68 this Tuesday, July 22nd. There were a few other celebrity birthdays this week, but none of any importance.
