February 10. In 1355, the St. Scholastica Day riot broke out in Oxford (over unsatisfactory drinks), leaving 63 scholars and 30 locals dead. In 1895, volleyball was invented. In 1932, the US entered the two-man bobsled competition for the first time at the Olympic Games in Lake Placid, NY. In 1950, Senator Joseph “What-An-Asshole” McCarthy charged the State Department was riddled with Communists. In 1960, the first star, for Joanne Woodward, was placed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 1967, the 25th Amendment, allowing for incapacitated Presidents to be removed, was ratified. In 2007, Barack Obama announced his candidacy for President. In 2018, Outrage Orange blocked the release of the Democratic memo and Mike Dense did not STAND when the Korean delegation entered the Olympic arena. (Say what?) Happy Birthday, Amy Lowell, Boris Pasternak, Bertolt Brecht, Frances Moore Lappe, Carole King. Mission: De-sleaze American government. Lock more of these criminals up.
