Big day in American history. On this day in:

1995 – the bombing of the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City
1993 – burning of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco
1943 – Warsaw Ghetto Uprising (OK, granted, not American geographically, but still...)
1775 – battles of Lexington and Concord

Today's birthdays:
Elliot Ness (1903)
Glenn Seaborg, discoverer of plutonium (1912)
Jayne Mansfield (1933)
Tim Curry, actor (1946)

Now that is an interesting guest list!
