A PBS show I enjoy tracks the historical connection to family-owned historical artifacts. Yesterday, they aired an episode where a Chicago man was replacing roof insulation in his home and realized that the old material contained scores of old posters for a Harry Houdini magic show...some in near mint condition.

The new owner wanted to determine the posters' authenticity as well as learn what kind of show Houdini was performing in Chicago. The History Detectives traveled to New York City and Las Vegas to peer behind the magician’s veil, and examine this final chapter in Houdini’s career.

The episode included an excellent interview with Lance Burton and displayed a number of Houdini artifacts and stories. A great episode if you can catch it! Check your local PBS website for times and dates.

Never criticize someone else until you have walked a mile in their shoes. Then, when you do criticize them, you will be a mile away from them and you will have their shoes.
