The Slice

This date in Watergate history

I was riding my bike home from work yesterday afternoon when I passed a house near Comstock Park from which recorded music could be heard.

I could have kissed her on the cheek, too

But I don't suppose that would have occurred to me.

Anyway, let's move on. I've told my Dinah Shore story before.

July 24, 1969

Apollo 11 crew back on their home world.
