history lesson

DayBird - May 4th

1626 - Dutch explorer Peter Minuit landed on what is now Manhattan.

1886 Haymarket Square Riot: A bomb is thrown at policemen trying to break up a labor rally in Chicago, killing eight and wounding 60. The police fire into the crowd. There is a lot of that going around today.

1919 May Fourth Movement: Student demonstrations take place in Tiananmen Square, protesting the Treaty of Versailles and other stuff.

1929 - Happy Birthday, Holly Golightly! She is known as the "Muscle from Brussels."

1961 The "Freedom Riders" begin their bus trip traveling through the South. They set it up so that they would have at least one interracial pair sitting in adjoining seats and at least one black Rider sitting up front (the white peeps place). One rider would abide by the South's segregation rules in order to avoid arrest and to arrange bail for those who were arrested.

1970 28 National Guardsmen fire their weapons at a group of antiwar demonstrators on the Kent State University campus, killing four students, wounding nine.

Two days earlier, the Ohio National Guard troops were called to Kent to suppress students demonstrations in protest of the U.S. invasion of Cambodia. By noon on the 4th, despite a ban, some 2,000 people had assembled on the campus. National Guard troops arrived and ordered the crowd to disperse, fired tear gas, and advanced against the students. Minutes later, without firing a warning shot, the Guardsmen discharged more than 60 rounds toward a group of unarmed demonstrators. Of those wounded, none was closer than 71 feet to the guardsmen. Of those killed, the nearest was 265 feet away.

In 1974, at the end of a criminal investigation into the Kent State incident, a federal court dropped all charges against eight Ohio National Guardsmen for their role in the students' deaths.

1970 Will Arnett appeared in Canada. I cannot be more specific.

1977 - In the televised interview, Nixon answered questions regarding the Watergate scandal and his resignation, admitting that he had "let the American people down" through his role in the 1972 Watergate burglary and cover-up.

1979 Margaret Thatcher becomes the first female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

1998 A federal judge gives "Unabrower" Theodore Kaczynski four life sentences plus 30 years.

The Alibi Air Hockey Table Has Been Grabbed

Our air hockey table in the back of a truck.
Our air hockey table in the back of a truck.

This week, we ran an Alibi classified ad offering up our the air hockey table to the first person who could haul it away. We got about a zillion calls and now it’s gone. Sorry to everyone who didn’t get here first. It was really huge and took up our whole back room, so it’s kind of nice to have it gone. Our back room was packed with so much junk you could barely move in there, much less play air hockey. Farewell, air hockey table.
