Today In Twisted History
JANUARY 23


1553: Earthquake in Shansi, China, results in worst death toll in history: 830,000.


1780: New York Harbor freezes solid during NYC's coldest day on record (-16F), & will stay that way for next month.


1899: Mrs. Bogart's son is born today; Mom doesn't know that other kids will beat the tar out of him because of his funny first name: Humphrey.


1968: North Korea seizes USS Pueblo, caught in Korean waters, & arrests 83 Americans as spies.


1971: Coldest day ever (ever!) in U.S. is in Prospect Creek, Arkansas, at -80F.


1991: Like, total dj vu! President George Bush (I, not II) proposes removal of Saddam Hussein from power.

3. Yeah!
I figured I'd log in to see at least half a dozen snarky remarks about the last item on the list!

4. Yessirree...
I have a special fondness for including such flashbacks -- of which there are far too many!
