With spring upon us, I’ll muse about 2 happy days in our WayBack Machine for earlier March 24ths –
– First Elvis Presley’s induction into our US Army on March 24th, 1958, Thank you, Thank you very much for serving.
In the fifties, uniformed service was okay for celebrities and sports heros – Willie Mays, Jerry Coleman, Ted Williams…
– And second – on this day in 1839, the term “all correct” gained the shorthand phrase “OK”. How ’bout that?
I wish world affairs were “OK” . Yet with a Russian Thug pushing his weight around, mudslides in Washington state snuffing out citizens, Sunni/Shiite strife, and the confirmation of Malaysia Flt 370’s ending in the Indian Ocean – things on this crazy planet have been better.
