What was totally obliterated on this day? Also, which baseball star lost his almost sure bet to make it into the Hall of Fame and what did he do to merit that fate? And what wound up in the pool???
Today is Flitting Appreciation Day, a time to recognize those who have perfected the art of flitting around.
79: Mount Vesuvius erupted, burying the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in volcanic ash.
1989: Pete Rose was banned from baseball for gambling.
1968: A hard partying rock and roller drove a Lincoln into the swimming pool at the Holiday Inn in Flint, Michigan. Who was it? It was a member of the Who – Keith Moon.
