Today in 1977, NASA unveils a photo from the Viking probe, sent to Mars (and famously including a lander that photographed the surface landscape of Mars) to do intensive surveying.
 Obviously looking at this photo it’s easy to see why this attracted so many people’s attention, considering there’s a face right there!
The image is certainly compelling, and some people, such as Richard Hoagland  appear to have based most of their careers off of
promoting this image as evidence of life on Mars.  Who’s to say, really, although later and better photos seem to conclusively show
that this is a natural rock formation that only coincidentally appears to be a face.  

p.s if  Mr. Hoagland  would have only taken this shot 100 km to the west
 he would have "snapped" my Jr. High School! 
Better luck next time, I guess.

Federal employees work on flex time, which means they can start and finish their 8 hour day at the time they choose. My daughter works for the gov, and as far as I can tell, she works a full day, from 7:30-4(:30?)

Oct 6 1945 - A goat and its owner make an appearance at Wrigley Field for Game 4 of the World Series. The pair is told to leave before the game ends, angering the owner. The Chicago Cubs lose to the Detroit Tigers, 4 - 1. Detroit will go on to win the Series in seven games and the Cubs won't win another National League championship for the rest of the 20th century. A belief that the Cubs were cursed by the goat will eventually develop.

         This crap started on the road I live on less than 10 miles away. Geez, back then I even had a girlfriend who worried about me going to the store. {#Lol}

Doug Duncan recalls 'three weeks of daily terror'
Wednesday - 10/3/2012, 7:31am  ET
During the 2002 terror attacks, then-Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan briefed victims' families on developments in the investigation. (AP)

 WASHINGTON - The call came when he was attending a conference in Chicago. His police chief wanted to talk to him.

 Former Montgomery County Executive Doug Duncan said that raised a red flag.

 Chief Charles Moose didn't typically call Duncan when the county executive was out of town — unless it was important.

 It was Oct. 3, 2002 when Duncan received he call. He was told there had been one murder the night before and two more that morning.

Duncan immediately cut short his trip and raced back to a county in crisis.

 "On my way back to the hotel, I got another call saying someone else had been murdered, " he recalls.

 By the time Duncan got to the airport, there had been another shooting.

 "The whole flight home I sort of prayed that no one else had been killed, " he says.

 In less than 24 hours, five people had been killed in Montgomery County.
It would be the sniper shootings that would thrust Duncan, the man often referred to as the "Mayor of Montgomery County, " into the glare of the national media.
