I just recently started watching this show and find it fascinating how they can track down so much information about trivial and obscure stuff. I watched for the Ernie Pyle typewriter but actually found the Lucy Parsons story more interesting.

She was a social activists in the late 1800's and when she dies the police robbed her house and confiscated all of her literature.

I wish I had started watching this show much sooner.
