Subject: RE: BS: Where were you when.......
Must be showing my age---there were so many---

FDR dies---standing outside a dentist's office talking to my friend inside

JFK--in my office

9/11-- driving to work and seeing the smoke from the NJ side and hearing all the misinformation on the radio

The first space Shot Shepherd (well, it was suborbital) ---standing in NYC listening with the crowds on radio

Lincoln's Assasination---I was not able to get tickets to Ford's that evening. Heard about it-=--missed the show.

Hamilton / Burr Duel---missed that one due to lack of funds to cross the bridge (not yet built) to NJ.

The Gates---missed it completely due to having a "who in hell cares" attitude. If you know any Yidish---try this---should have been hung in the garment center and titled---Shmattes from Lamposts. Nikce piece of goods though
