Good evening, News Viewers, and welcome to the weekend.
I thought I would share a bit of history with you on what happened in the world on March 4:
- On March 4, 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt took office as America’s 32nd president.
- In 1789, the Constitution of the United States went into effect as the first Federal Congress met in New York. (The lawmakers then adjourned for lack of a quorum.)
- In 1865, President Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated for a second term of office; with the end of the Civil War in sight, Lincoln declared: “With malice toward none, with charity for all.”
- And because March is Women’s History Month:
- In 1917, Republican (when the party was sane) Jeannette Rankin of Montana took her seat as the first woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives.
- In 1966, John Lennon of The Beatles was quoted in the London Evening Standard as saying, “We’re more popular than Jesus now.”
Now it’s your turn; I posted just a handful. But, no worries if you don’t want to share any kind of history. Feel free to chit and chat about whatever you want…well, within reason, of course.
Pour your favorite beverage and enjoy one another’s company-Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the weekend.
