History Made Today in History

1957 The New York City “Mad Bomber“, George P. Metesky, is arrested in Waterbury, Connecticut and is charged with planting more than 30 bombs. Thankfully he planted them in the shade and forgot to water them so they never grew.

1973 The Supreme Court of the United States delivers its decision in Roe v. Wade, allowing abortion. Like all Supreme Court decisions this was widely accepted and met with unanimous agreement among the American population.

1984 The Apple Macintosh, the first consumer computer to popularize the computer mouse and the graphical user interface, was introduced during Super Bowl XVIII with its famous 1984television commercial. Unfortunately the company spent too much on advertising, went bankrupt and was never heard from again.

2002 Kmart Corp becomes the largest retailer in United States history to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. And Wal-Mart inherits the coveted position of being the sole retial “mart” that’s able to sell NASCAR t-shirts, air riffles, paintball guns and household crap tailored to whatever Christian holiday is two holidays away to real Umericuns.

2006Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant scored 81 points against the Toronto Raptors at Staples Center which is the second most points in a single-game in NBA history, only behind Wilt Chamberlain’s 100 points in 1962. Solidifies image as a team player and all around unselfish individual.

2007The jury portion of the trial against Robert Pickton, accused of being Canada’s worst serial killer, opens in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada. To clarify, in Canada serial killer means “guy who isn’t a hockey fan.”
