More History Stuff...

59 years ago - U.S. forces drop atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan and kill 70,000 instantly, at least another 70,000 from fallout and poisoning.

35 years ago - Sharon Tate and others murdered by the Manson family on Cielo Drive.

30 years ago - At 12:00 noon, Richar Milhous Nixon resigns the presidency, being the only chief executive to do so. He probably would have served jail time. Permanently stained the office of the presidency. Shakespeare couldn't have written his demise better. Been gone ten, and yet, I would rather have you than the simpleton from Texas.

9 years ago - R.I.P, Jerry. Think I'll listen to American Beauty and think of you.
