Notable Events of 1979

A brief look back at 1979:

February 28 – Mr. Ed, the 'talking horse' featured in the television show of the same name, dies. .(.. A horse is a corpse of course of course...)

April 20 – President Jimmy Carter is attacked by a swamp rabbit while fishing in his hometown of Plains, Georgia. (seriously? is that like that rabbit in Monty Python's Holy Grail?)

May 11 – Destinee is born. (now that's somethin')

August 10 – Michael Jackson releases his first breakthrough album Off The Wall. It sells 7 million copies in the United States alone, making it a 7x platinum album. (They got the title right there)

September 1 – The U.S. Pioneer 11 becomes the first spacecraft to visit Saturn, when it passes the planet at a distance of 21,000 km. (...To boldly go...)

November 3 – In Greensboro, North Carolina, 5 members of the Communist Workers Party are shot to death and 7 are wounded by a group of Klansmen and neo-Nazis, during a "Death to the Klan" rally. (Right here in our home state folks)

December 3 – Eleven fans are killed during a stampede for seats before The Who concert at the Riverfront Coliseum (now known as the U.S. Bank Arena) in Cincinnati, Ohio. (Who let all the angry cattle into the arena - didn't they know a sweet concert was about to start?)



Happy birthday babe! You're a superstar. Let's disco...


Love, Your Secret Admirer
