Back in the day
123 years ago . . . in 1890 - The ELECTRIC CHAIR WAS FIRST USED, in a prison in Auburn, New York. Convicted axe murderer William Kemmler fried for killing his girlfriend.
68 years ago . . . in 1945 - The ENOLA GAY dropped the ATOMIC BOMB on HIROSHIMA, Japan. About 70,000 people died INSTANTLY, with another 60,000 dying in the next four months. 90% of the city was leveled.
It was the first time the atom bomb had been dropped on a populated area, and the first time it was used in warfare. Enola Gay co-pilot Robert Lewis wrote in his log book that day, quote, "My God, what have we done?"
(I have a feeling the guys who first signed Justin Bieber may have said that to each other at some point.)
51 years ago . . . in 1962 - If you're looking for a good excuse to "do a J" this morning . . . this was the day that JAMAICA became an independent dominion within the British Commonwealth. (???)

15 years ago . . . in 1998 - MONICA LEWINSKY spent eight-and-a-half chubby hours testifying before a grand jury about her taboo relationship with PRESIDENT CLINTON.
