'A Christmas Story,' 'A League of Their Own,' 'Slacker' Selected for Preservation by the National Film Registry

Today, the titles of 25 films selected to be preserved in the Library of Congress's National Film Registry were announced by the Librarian of Congress (yes, that's a real job/person), and a few well-known comedies made the list. Six of the 25 films this year were comedies (or comedy-dramas), and they are A Christmas Story (1983), A League of Their Own (1992), Slacker (1991), Breakfast at Tiffany's (1961), Sons of the Desert (1933), and Born Yesterday (1950). Also, a bunch of non-comedies like The Matrix and some other stuff made the list too, but that junk doesn't concern us here because this is a comedy website, and we are aggressively intolerant of all things that are not comedy.
