This Day in History

From HistoryChannel.com:
1980 Mount St. Helens erupts

Mount St. Helens in Washington erupts, causing a massive avalanche and killing 57 people on this day in 1980. Ash from the volcanic eruption fell as far away as Minnesota.
Go here to see the St. Helens web cam, and here to see what sort of tremors are happening now.

1908 Congress mandates use of "In God We Trust"

In a move that seemingly flew in the face of America's founding belief in the separation of church and state, Congress passed legislation on this day in 1908 that made the maxim "In God We Trust" an obligatory element of certain coins.

I wonder how long it will last.
