It's April 19th again. Time to remember historic happenings on this day. The big one for Americans, of course, is the shot heard round the world, in Concord, Massachusetts on the morning of April 19, 1775. It was named and immortalized by Ralph Waldo Emerson in 1837 in his poem, The Concord Hymn. It was begun when the British attempted to seize weapons and ammunition from American colonists. If today's government wishes to foment a civil war, that's still a sure way to start it.

Today is also the twenty-seventh anniversary of the day when Slick Willy and his boys killed 82 people at Waco--22 of them innocent helpless little children. I am still waiting for Waco Justice.
