Today in History

Instead of getting deep today, let’s check this day in history…

Ninety years ago today, the first air mail route in the U.S. was established. This was leading-edge technology at the time. You could get a package from New York to Washington in less than a week. At that time, blackberries were what you put in pie.

On May 15th, 1930 Ellen Church became the first airline stewardess for United Airlines. Years later, airlines changed the title to flight attendant and introduced the $4 sandwich.

Woodstock MC and social activist Hugh "Wavy Gravy" Romney is 72. Clearly his boycott of brown acid has proven wise.

Happy birthday Mike Oldfield, Ray Lewis, Emmitt Smith, George Brett, Brian Eno, among others.

Happy International Day of Familes, Bike To Work Day, and Hagen-Daas New Flavor Day.
