Today's Fact

On July 20, 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong took a giant leap for mankind as he became the first human to walk on the moon. NASA's Apollo 11 Lunar Module landed 238,855 miles from Earth on the moon's Sea of Tranquility, and six hours later Armstrong exited the vehicle, descended a short ladder, and became the first human to walk on the moon. Minutes later, astronaut Buzz Aldrin joined Armstrong on the surface. Millions back home tuned in to the historic event. (I remember watching this. Yes, I am old. - CD)

On June 29, 1967, a trial in England ended that sent two members of the Rolling Stones, a famous rock and roll group, to jail. During a drug bust at guitarist Keith Richard's home, no "Indian hemp" was actually found, and singer Mick Jagger had only four amphetamine pills, but they were both convicted and sentenced to prison, Jagger for three months and Richards a year. They spent only two days in prison before the convictions were thrown out.

On June 22, 1969 Cleveland, Ohio's polluted river caught fire. The blaze spurred change after a reporter witnessed an oil slick burning near a steel mill on the Cuyahoga River. The resulting feature in Time magazine, despite using images from a previous fire on the river, turned out to be instrumental in furthering the growing environmental movement in the US.

On June 15, 1215 (boy that was a long time ago!), King John conceded absolute power and put it in writing. His absolute monarchical power ended when the beleaguered king formally agreed to respect the feudal privileges of England's nobility. Belief that this Magna Carta strengthened individual liberty greatly influenced the American Constitution and the development of modern democracies.

Today's Fact

On June 8, 1949, everyone learned that Big Brother is watching you when '1984' by George Orwell was published. He introduced newspeak, thought-crimes, and Big Brother in his vision of a dystopian future. The book 1984 became a great literary work and an accurate warning of the "double plus ungood" rise of totalitarianism and surveillance.
