There are events in your lifetime that leave such an impression that you even remember the exact moment and activity you were engaged in when you heard the news. The moon landing. PeeWee Herman getting busted. The OJ slow speed car chase. And now the ’08 democratically controlled congress actually passing meaningful legislation. I am talking real concrete, non-resolution stuff here. I think I was watching football. No wait I think I was playing a video game with my son. No, hold on, I think I was watching WKRP in Cincinnati reruns. Crap, a fleeting, monumental occasion and I can’t even remember what I was doing. In my defence, I think the phone cops were after Johnny Fever.
Where Were You When?
