September 23. In 1806, Lewis and Clark returned to St. Louis after exploring the Pacific Northwest. In 1846, Johann Galle, Jean LeVerrier and John Couch discovered Neptune. In 1930, flashbulbs were patented by Johannes Ostermeier. In 1957, the Little Rock 9 withdrew from Little Rock High as they were besieged by a dangerous and brainless white mob outside the school. The next day, Eisenhower sent in heavily armed US troops, who remained throughout the school year, as did the 9 students, albeit bullied and sickeningly beaten. In 1962, “The Jetsons” premiered on ABC as the first ABC program in color. In 1964, Chagall’s ceiling painting at the Paris Opera house was unveiled. In 1969, the London Daily mirror reported Paul McCartney was dead (fake news). In 1980, Bob Marley performed his last show. Happy Birthday, Victoria Chaflin Woodhull (first woman to run for President), Louise Nevelson, John Coltrane, Ray Charles, Bruce Springsteen. It’s Kyrgyz Language Day. Mission: Күнүңүз жакшы өтсүн! And rock on.
