Father: So you want to marry my daughter?
Young man: Yes, sir, I do.
Father: Well, do you make enough money to support a family?
Young man: Yes, sir, I do.
Father: Are you sure? There are six of us.

What names did explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark give to the rivers known today as the Salmon and the Bitterroot?

Lewis named the Bitterroot for Clark; Clark named the Salmon for Lewis. Neither name survived. But one very personal name Clark gave a river did stick: that of the Judith River in Montana, which he named for the woman he hoped to—and did—marry when the historic expedition to the Pacific coast ended.

THIS DAY IN TV

On April 30, 1939, the first small-scale experimental television broadcast—to the few research institutions, companies, and individuals in the US who owned a TV—took place. What was shown? The opening ceremony of the New York World’s Fair. It was the first-ever TV show.
