    Oct. 4. 1976,, A good day in History.

    Oct 4 1976 Earl Butz, President Ford's Secretary of Agriculture, is forced to resign after newspapers print a comment he made regarding race relations: "I'll tell you what the coloreds want. It's three things: first, a tight pussy; second, loose shoes; and third, a warm place to shit."

    Great,, here is some other things that happened on your 36 days anniversary.

    Oct 4 1969

    A despondent Diane Linkletter jumps out the kitchen window of her tenth-story apartment in West Hollywood, California. Even before an autopsy can be performed, television personality Art Linkletter blames his daughter's death on a bad LSD trip. Even though the toxicology report disputes Art's assertion, the LSD story persists.
    Oct 4 1970
    Janis Joplin accidentally overdoses on an unusually-pure dose of heroin at the Landmark Motor Hotel in Los Angeles.
    Oct 4 1978
    Tammy Wynette is kidnapped at gunpoint in a Nashville shopping center. The masked gunman drives the country music star 80 miles away, releasing her only after inflicting a savage beating. The assailant is never caught.
    Oct 4 1986

    Network news anchorman Dan Rather is mugged in New York City. The attacker, one William Tager, shouts the question "What's the frequency, Kenneth?" during the beating. While the "frequency" refers to the wavelength of the transmissions that CBS was beaming into Tager's head, history is still unclear on exactly who "Kenneth" is or why R.E.M. would record a song about it.
    Oct 4 1989 Secretariat, 1973 triple crown winner and one of the greatest athletes of all time, is euthanized in Paris, Kentucky. He was 19.

    Not a very inclusive celebration of the USA's 200th birthday.

    Frequency refers to frequency. Wavelength is the inverse of frequency.

    Will wonders never cease . . . here is BlackGang saying it is a good thing that someone's racist dribblings were punished.

    Good for you, BG, you are becoming sensible . . . now if you could only translate to today

    No, I was congratulating you . . . but if you can't see that then you are really a lost cause. Read the reply . . . it was praise.
