Watched The Morning News On TV


Since I watched the morning news on TV, and since I am still digesting parts of it, I got a late start this morning so there will be no personal thoughts today... unless I decide to add some sometime soon.

Probably not, though.


Casey Kasem is the voice of Shaggy on Scooby-Doo.


On this day in 1953, Massachusetts Senator John F. Kennedy, the future 35th president of the United States, married Jacqueline Bouvier in Newport, Rhode Island. Seven years later, the couple would become the youngest president and first lady in American history.

"Jack," as Kennedy was called, and Jackie were married at St. Mary's Church in Newport, Rhode Island. The Catholic mass was attended by 750 guests and an additional 450 people joined the wedding reception at Hammersmith Farm.
