Kimmy Mentions Wheeler!

Hey, it's time again for a post about something that amuses me and is E-Rate-adjacent.

We're watching "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" on Netflix.  Last night, we reached the episode "Kimmy Sees a Sunset!" (episode 12 of season 2) and suddenly, they're talking about FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler!  It wasn't as good as John Oliver calling the Chairman a dingo, but we do get to hear David Cross say, "Tom Wheeler and I still use floaties!"

Why did this give me a little thrill?  It's not like I've met the Chairman or even follow him on Twitter.  But I am among the very few Americans who can name the FCC Chairman.  And I could pick him out of a lineup, even if the lineup included Michael Keaton and Rutger Hauer.  It's kind of like hearing your favorite obscure band mentioned on the radio.
