I was expecting that reply from @shane0911
On this day in 1940, Warner Bros. released the animated short film "A Wild Hare", introducing Bugs Bunny.
On this day in 1996, a pipe bomb exploded in Atlanta's Centennial Park during the Summer Olympics, killing 2 and injuring 111.
As I remember that still isn't solved.
Well I do remember the poor guy they originally accused was cleared.
yep, Richard Jewell, a hero, but the tv news crucified him
Didn't they catch some radical anti abortionist?
Eric Rudolph was eventually convicted of the bombing. Richard Jewell was incorrectly accused. ESPN devoted one of its 30 for 30 episodes to him; it was excellent.
thank you must have missed that...
Rudolph spent five years on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list until he was caught in 2003. In 2005, as part of a plea bargain, he pleaded guilty to numerous state and federal homicide charges and accepted four consecutive life sentences in exchange for avoiding a trial and a potential death sentence. He remains incarcerated at the ADX Florence Supermaxprison near Florence, Colorado.
I had family there so i remember hearing the news and freaking out. Finally got in touch with them.
On this day in 1945 after delivering parts of the first atomic bomb to the island of Tinian, the U.S.S.Indianapolis is sunk by a Japanese submarine. The survivors are adrift for two days before help arrives
