Can you recall news stories that captured your imagination when you were a kid?
For me, the underwater implosion of the USS Thresher 50 years ago was such a story. Just seeing the name of that ill-fated sub transports me back to a time when I was a grade-school boy transfixed by the terrifying details of its deep-water demise.
The Aberfan disaster in Britain was another such story.
How about you?
