Oklahoma City bombing anniversary

It was only 12 years ago today. I don't know what to think about it. Still a tragedy, it is too soon to be viewed as history. It always amazes me to think of how fast the feds got Timothy McVeigh onto the death gurney. The event has given rise to almost as many conspiracy theories as the Kennedy assassinations. Vinnie and kyer remember.
Reader Uncle Wiggily from the Heartland Notebook reminds us of another important anniversary that fall on this date. The anniversary of the "Shot Heard 'Round the World" fired at Lexington, Massachusetts in 1775. As UW says: "It was in all the papers."

The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere
I also forgot the anniversary of Paul Revere's ride the night before. This in spite of the fact that "it was in all the papers" and that a Miss DeCroce forced me to memorize the awful, sing-song poem in grade school.
