Funny Things

Well, one funny thing, at least.  I'm watching the fifth season of TNT's Falling Skies (a post-apocalyptic alien invasion family drama with an American Revolution theme), and someone gives one of the main characters (a former American History prof) a copy of Toqueville's Democracy in America.

I love that the props team at Falling Skies chose to mimic the Library of America edition of Toqueville, but they seem to have forgotten to check the man's name (Alexis, not Alexander).  Here's the cover they're mimicking.
