Wiki-Meme!

Eric tagged me to do a Wikipedia survey.

Events

1. 1918
An explosion occurred killing more than 100 and destroying the T.A. Gillespie Company Shell Loading Plant in Sayreville, New Jersey. Fires and explosions continued for three days forcing massive evacuations and spreading ordnance over a wide area, pieces of which are still being found in 2007. (Ordnance? Not sure what that means but thats what the article says.)

(Besides being the hometown of Jon Bon Jovi, Sayreville is a town not too far from my hometown in NJ. It was just listed in Money magazine as #47 out of the top 100 places to live. I don't get it. Sayreville is a town surrounded by landfills and possible cancer clusters. Go figure.)


2. 1927 Gutzon Borslum begins sculpting Mount Rushmore.

3. 1950 Snoopy's First Appearance!!!

1. 1946 Actress Susan Sarandon

2. 1976 Actress Alicia Silverstone

3. 2005 Prince Emannuel of Belgium
