Saturday Morning Post.

September 9. In 490 BC, the Battle of Marathon between the Persians and the Athenians took place--the marathon race was derived from this (RUN LIKE HELL!). In 1776, it was decided that the “United States” would replace the “United Colonies.” In 1836, Lincoln got his law degree. In 1850, California joined the union. In 1940, George Stibitz pioneered the first remote operation of a computer. In 1942, Japan dropped bombs in an attempt to set fire to Oregon and Washington, but the fires did not ignite (Hmmm—call that kid?). In 1948, North Korea became the People’s Democratic Republic of Korea (hahahaha). In 1956, Elvis made his first appearance on Ed Sullivan’s “Toast of the Town.” He was shot from only the waist up. In 1969, Hendrix made his TV debut on the “The Dick Cavett Show.” In 1997, Sinn Fein (IRA’s ally) formally renounced violence. Happy Birthday, Leo Tolstoy, Topol, Otis Redding, Inez Foxx, Dee Dee Sharp. It’s Steak Au Poivre Day and Wienerschnitzel Day. Mission: Renounce violence. (Eat a little meat?)
