Only a few will be able to answer this, do you recall where you were on this date 59 years ago?

I was in college and washing lazy folks' windows on Staten Island for extra money in order to take the train home to Maine for the holiday. A lovely, sunny Fall day. A woman from a neighboring house came running across the lawn of the home where I was working and continued on across other lawns, she was yelling something. She became in my memory the town crier, the bearer of very bad news.

The memory is far from inconsequential. I learned of it in Latin class. We all went to chapel for a brief announcement and prayer and were dismissed. I was in the DC area, and the world became very still and somber. We were having unusually warm weather, and that added to the strange and unsettled feeling. In those days we were not glued to 24/7 news. When tragedy or other major news struck everyone was left to process it for themselves.

Now, Peaks, I return to my regular programming, a taco.
