On this day




About 11:00 this morning.


Tonight's sunset.


And then a little later, this ghost shaped cloud formed.

* Forty years ago today, in a place called Gitchie Manitou, a girl survived a horrible experience. (Good wishes for Sandra, and I hope she does write a book about it.)

* Dozens injured as tornado rips through Washington, Pekin

* Photos of today's tornado damage in Pekin, Illinois.

* Washington, Illinois.

* Gifford, Illinois.

* Not sure where.

* You can't help but get a sense that the various media outlets that are trying to sell the story of President Kennedy this week are so desperate to tell us something that hasn't already been told. Unless they've got something rock solid that brings a measure of closure beyond what we already know, I don't care to hear any new theories.

* This week in 1963, the Kingsmen's version of Louie Louie debuted on the Top 40 -- the Top 20 in some places. It was a sound unlike anything else on the charts up to that time.
