This Day in History

Another busy day in history. From HistoryChannel.com:

First up, Marylin Monroe's Boyfriend Killed:
1963 Kennedy assassinated

President John F. Kennedy is assassinated during a visit to Dallas, Texas. His death caused intense mourning in the United States and brought Vice President Lyndon Johnson to the presidency.

Next, we have the death of another one of the most famous sluts:
1980 Mae West dies

Actress and writer Mae West dies at the age of 88.

ARRRR!!! Then we'll be havin' the death of a pirate:
1718 Blackbeard killed off North Carolina

Edward Teach, also known as Blackbeard, is killed off North Carolina's Outer Banks during a bloody battle with a British navy force sent from Virginia.

And finally, the birth of the Stealth bomber:
1988 Stealth bomber unveiled

In the presence of members of Congress and the media, the Northrop B-2 "stealth" bomber is shown publicly for the first time at Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale, California.
Well, that's enough for now.

Update: It may also be of interest to you, that on this day in 1997, Michael Hutchence - lead singer of INXS - was found hanging from the end of a rope in a hotel room. Got a little carried away jerking off evidently.

You know, I would have probably gone through the entire day not remembering it was the JFK day. Then again, it's not time for the nightly news just yet. They always remind us about St. John.

It never meant much to me. I was just in 3rd grade.

My word verification: ntzwzc

I think I have some Polish relatives with that last name.
