Hey 3.5 readers.
I was listening to the radio and apparently today was a big day in history, although I guess you could pick any day and find that something interesting happened.
First, today is Edgar Allen Poe’s birthday, so Happy Birthday, you Grandaddy of all horror writers, you.
Second, today is the anniversary of the first time TV cameras were allowed into a White House press conference. They played audio of Eisenhower saying something like, “We’re doing a little experiment here and I hope they won’t turn out to be a distraction.”
Ominous words, as TV pretty much changed the course of politics altogether. Arguably, they turned out to become the biggest distraction ever.
Sidenote: Is it “altogether” or “all together?” I think about words so much now.
