Thanks, RepMan. Given your love of comedy, is it safe to assume Phyllis Diller can be added to your list as well?

Also, the hyperlink apparently didn't make the final post, but when I mentioned how jazz has expanded in so many ways since Miles and Coltrane, I meant to provide this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ly8KniNgkXo
Thanks for the comments, everyone. First of all, if I could work with one jazz musician right now, it would have to be the Avishai Cohen trio. Follow this link for a video of the group: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ij1hjQkpg24&feature=related)The reason for choosing this group is that they have integrated international elements (in this case, Israeli folk melodies) into jazz. In so doing, they have opened the door to new audiences and pushed jazz in a new direction. Jason Fischbach, good question. I would have to agree with Laura. I hinted to it in the original post, but if jazz's image is confused or tarnished, and jazz musicians can't afford to perpetuate their music, that would be problematic for jazz music (and not necessarily other genres). And, to Mark's point, regardless of what we call jazz, it's unfair to the genre to be remembered for a snapshot in time that no longer exists. Think about if Pop music meant The Beatles instead of Justin Bieber.
Well said, Dandy, and congrats! I grew up in a household of non-smokers. I am a non-smoker. Yet I have to admit that the smell of pipe tobacco or cigars (not so much with cigarettes) make me want to light up every now and then.

Browning Nagle is currently a Senior Manager at Medtronic (http://www.medtronic.com/about-medtronic/business-overview/spinal-and-biologics/). Apparently he had a brain for business, not football.

Steve, I'm very disappointed to find out that I have a pre-owned nickname. I always thought that my nickname referred to the jazz standard, "Mack the Knife."

I can't imagine consuming anything like this before or during a long run. My usual pre-run meal is one toasted cinnamon raisin english muffin with peanut butter on it, and sometimes even that feels heavy. I can't even drink Gatorade during bike rides - stomach cramps! As for outrageous sponsorship ideas, how about Starbucks or Five Hour Energy sponsoring a meditation retreat?
Excellent post. I would just like to add a few thoughts. First of all, I can't speak for the rest of my generation, but I would guess that we millenials know quite a bit about the Greatest Generation as well. I know that I was taught a great deal in middle and high school about WW2 and the post war boom, but relatively little about 60s and 70s counterculture, with the exception of the civil rights movement. That said, while I didn't know who Mike Eruzione was, I did know about the miracle on ice (that wasn't part of the survey question). Growing up in the Adirondack mountains, I played regular hockey games on that very rink in Lake Placid. Lastly, ask me anything you would like to about Steely Dan.

I am sorry to inform you, Steve, that I can’t contribute any additional shows that have played a part in my cultivation. I grew up mostly without TV. The closest thing I have is a mini-series: Band of Brothers. You have to admit, though... "hold your fire" really caught on as a cultural phrase circa 2005.
