In the, my, how time flies, department, it was 25 years ago this weekend that I moved to this town on the bank of the Mississippi River. Not bad for closing my eyes and putting my finger to a map (a map of Minnesota, but close enough....).
Happy anniversary to former televangelist Jim Bakker, the head of Praise the Lord Ministries who was indicted for mail and wire fraud on this date in 1988 and later spent five years in prison. Although, on the plus side, he did get to have a torrid affair with her.
Happy anniversary to Sean Connery, who took up the role of James Bond once more in "Never Say Never Again," released on this date in 1983. A man his age starring in an action movie, and not a hair out of place.
Gentlemen, you can't fight in here--this is the war room.
