For Whom The Bell Tolls
In every age throughout recorded history, the ringing of a bell has been synonymous with the beginnings of something new and exciting but untested. Perhaps the most dramatic instance of such was the ringing of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia PA on July 4, 1776 to herald the birth of a new nation.
No one knew what the future held for the fledgling enterprise. Whether it would survive and meet with success or die a quick and ignominious death was unknown and unfathomable. Only time and the judgment of history would tell.
On February 17, 2014, the Comcast Bell, also in Philadelphia PA, rang to herald the birth of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Only time and the judgment of history will tell.
Jimmy Fallon? Amiable, good-looking, and young. Funny? I'm not so sure, but time and the judgment of all of us will tell.
One thing is for sure though: The Friday Fictioneers are amiable, good-looking, and young (well, some of them anyway) and are ready to ring your chimes if you click here. Some of them are even funny, like Russell --- and maybe from time to time, even a little bit me.
For whom the bell tolls? Me. I'm outta here!
