July 21. In 1865, in the first western showdown, Wild Bill Hickok shot Davis Tutt in Missouri. In 1873, Jesse James and the James-Younger Gang pulled off the first successful train robbery in Iowa. In 1925, John Scopes was found guilty of teaching evolution in Tennessee and fined $100 (Ah, that pesky science). Happy Birthday, Hart Crane, Ernest Hemingway, Isaac Stern, Garry Trudeau, Robin Williams. It's Liberation Day in Guam and Racial Harmony Day in Singapore. Mission: Do what you have to do. P.S. A reminder: Science NOT a liberal conspiracy.
