1138 – A massive earthquake strikes Aleppo, Syria
AND GARY JOHNSON DIDN'T EVEN KNOW THAT!!!
1884 – Eleanor Roosevelt was born.
If journalism was in the 1930's as it is today, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Eleanor would have been known as "Deleanor."
1899 – Second Boer War begins: In South Africa, a war between the United Kingdom and the Boers of the Transvaal and Orange Free State erupts.
Years ago, I listened to a Mises Institute lecture on audio. The lecturer (unfortunately I forgot which one) referred to the British finding out there's gold in southern Africa and decided it was time to Christianize the Boers.
1975 – The NBC sketch comedy/variety show Saturday Night Live debuts.
Wouldn't be surprised if the next week they showed the rerun of the first episode. You know, because it's a rerun most of the time.
