A Couple of Things

First, on the Blacklist, Red Reddington used the phrase "wealth of Croesus."    FLG was unfamiliar with the name and thought, perhaps, it was a mispronunciation of Crassus, who was asstonishingly rich.   But alas, no, it was Croesus.  In fact, on the Wikipedia page of wealthiest historical figures, in the ancient section, Croesus directly above Crassus.

Second, FLG doesn't think this is entirely fair to Chris Hayes, but he laughed nonetheless:
Give Holden Caulfield a television show and you’ve got Chris Hayes.
