You can do better than that. Everyone knows Mrs. Stiller–many more than can I.D. Mark Felt, for sure. Meanwhile, I have no idea who the boyfriend on One Day at a Time was. And I’d randomly say, “But you can’t name the actor who played Justine Bateman’s boyfriend on Family Ties” (who I’ve never ran into at a Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, or any other chain that would care to advertise with us), but you’re John Podhoretz, who won Jeopardy! and all. So I won’t bother flaunting my useless knowledge.
