Sublimely sublime

Happy 76th birthday to an unassuming genius: Bob Newhart. In a comedy world now populated by the likes of Sandler and Schneider, it's nice to recall a day when stand-ups respected audiences instead of playing down to them. Newhart had a "buttoned-up mind" ... now we have the unbuttoned fly. And fart jokes.
