Today Is The Anniversary Of Everything

I've already mentioned Apollo 11, which launched on July 16, 1969.

But this day also marks:

  • The death of JFK, Jr. and Carolyn Bissette Kennedy in a plane crash off Nantucket (10 years ago today)
  • Catcher In The Rye published (1951)
  • The execution of the Romanovs, including — yes, people — Anatasia (1918)


  • The designation of Washington DC as this nation's capital (1790)
  • The birthday of Corey Feldman (1971)


 Okay, maybe that last one isn't as important.
