When a young St. Paul boy got to pick the theme for his third birthday party, he didn’t pick Nemo or the Wiggles or Dora the Explorer. He didn’t even pick his favorite sports team.
Henry Schally picked “The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer”.
Yes! There is hope for the future! The world needs more Henry Schallys!
Here’s the money quote: “Outside of 6 to 7 o’clock every weekday night, he’s pretty normal,” [the boy’s father] Troy Schally clarified.
Update: The Washington Post’s coverage of Henry Schally’s NewsHour birthday is still online.
Update: Sadly, Henry Schally died in 2013 at age 10.
