Batman!

Batman made its television premiere on this date (January 12) in 1966. The series ran until March 14, 1968.

The show was aired twice weekly for its first two seasons, resulting in the production of a total of 120 episodes!

Who remembers watching it?

My family had a black and white television in those days. I remember a friend of mine who’s family owned a colour TV set. He told me that Robin looked like a Xmas tree, he was so colourful!

I had the pleasure of seeing Adam West last summer when he appeared at Comic-Con Niagara Falls. Old but still spry, still witty, still charming.

Following my Freedom of the Press Worldwide atlas, I bring you…

The Bribery Atlas!

Percentage of a country’s population that has paid bribes.

Again, it pans out pretty much as I thought it might.

Glad to see the Italian bribery percentage is as low as it is.

As for the No Data category, perhaps the makers of this map should have bribed some government officials for the stats.

On 29 November 1947, the United Nations General Assembly recommended the adoption and implementation of the partition plan of  Mandatory Palestine.

On 14 May 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the Executive Head of the World Zionist Organization and president of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, declared “the establishment of a Jewish state in Eretz Israel, to be known as the State of Israel,” a state independent upon the termination of the British Mandate for Palestine, 15 May 1948.

May the Almighty continue to bless and protect Israel.
