Friday Fantastic Four

Lots of folks are saying that Tuesday's election was a seminal moment in history.  I understand why some would say that electing a black man president is historic, and on one hand it is, but on the other hand, the economy is still a disaster, partisan politics still reigns (Rham Emmanuel?) and the globe is still warming.

It is indeed an interesting time we live in.

What are the four most interesting or historic moments in your lifetime?

  1. 9-11.  I drove north on I-95 two days prior and had an odd feeling looking at the skyline.  I know - that sounds weird.
  2. John Lennon killed. 
  3. Katrina.  It's still shocking we let this happen to a major American city.
  4. The fall of apartheid. 

Think about it for a bit. 

Have a great weekend!

1. 9-11. Was working next to the Pentagon at the time.

2. Challenger Explosion

3. "Mr. Gorbachev, Tear down this wall!". Wow, what a moment for the world.

4. Live Aid. OK, maybe not as critically important as the others, but it showed me as a 15 yr old that it IS a small world after all. I mean Phil Collins (right?) played on both side of the Atlantic on the same day!
