It’s a Mad World

Rolling Stone lists him as their 10th Best Stand-Up Comic of All Time ahead of luminaries Steve Martin (#11) and Robin Williams (#12).

Mort Sahl is 91. He still performs.

Blackballed by the industry because of his continued investigation into JFK’s assassination, Johnny Carson vented: “tell Mort it’ll be a long time before he’s back on the show!” Mort, once a regular, was never on the show again.

Mort worked for Kennedy. “The old man,” Joseph Kennedy, paid him for his jokes.

For his assistance in his JFK investigation, New Orleans District Attorney, Jim Garrison, awarded him with a plaque that says:

To Mort Sahl

The Best Friend John Kennedy Ever Had.

From Jim Garrison, Jim Alcock, Andrew Sciambra and Louis Ivon

New Orleans – May 29, 1969

Thursday night’s NFL contest is a reminder of a what a Mad World it really is.

Minnesota was humiliated at home by the lowly Buffalo Bills. Not only did they not cover the 17 point spread, they lost the game by 21 points. That’s a 38 point misfire by the wiseguys.

LA Rams are 3-0 and on top of everyone’s NFL Power Rankings. They’re -7 point favorites.
