In 1961 (the year you were born)

From my Pal

John F. Kennedy becomes president of the US

And knew Marilyn Monroe... In the biblical sense

An estimated 1200 anti-Castro exiles aided by the US make a failed invasion of Cuba's Bay of Pigs

Dang Libreals screwed it up then too...

Navy Cmdr. Alan B. Shepard Jr. becomes the first US spaceman rocketing 118 miles above the earth

Piercing the ozone for the first time...

Hurricane "Carla" wipes out Texas gulf cities, claiming 46 lives

What? Global warming back then? Where was Al Gore?

Russian Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin makes the first manned space flight

Spilling Vodka over the controls, he barely found his way home.

Wayne Gretzky, Henry Rollins, Fabio, George Clooney, Dennis Rodman, and Diana, Princess of Wales are born

I most resemble Fabio...

New York Yankees win the World series


Green Bay Packers win the NFL championship

Year the "Cheesehead" hat was invented.

Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup

Helicoptor crew?

Disney's One Hundred and One Dalmatians is the top grossing film

And now we own a decendent; Stupid, self centered mut!

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller is published


The Miracles' "Shop Around" becomes Motown's first million-selling single

OK, I can dig it. Cool song.
