Ken Burns on 60 Minutes

Our national treasure and after his interview..he certainly is. I watch a lot of PBS so I know about him n his documentaries. They are well worth watching more than once

1. We just finished Country Music and are two episodes into The War (for the second time).

Ken Burns' work is utterly brilliant.

4. After watching 60 Minutes,

I went to the PBS Passport website and added a whole bunch of Ken Burns shows to my watchlist. It looks like they have most if not all of his documentaries, all the way back to The Brooklyn Bridge.

Now that the most of the election is over (excluding Georgia senate), I have more good stuff to watch!

5. Love him but I always wondered about his hair

On one hand I think it's a toupee, but on the other hand I don't think anyone with money would have a toupee THAT bad.

6. ....

So -- what’s with the hair?

I just have hair that grows. When I can’t see anymore, I go and get it cut back, and then I go until I have to do it again. I have hair that has never seen a comb since I was in the fifth grade. I got a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Emmys this past fall, and Tom Brokaw introduced me and said, “He’s been himself, and he’s kept the same hair,” and I thought, “This is the perfect opportunity to say, ‘Tom, it’s a wig.’ ” I didn’t think of it until afterward -- I already had a one-liner, which was, “Thank you, I have a brief, nine-part response.”
