Glenn Miller Disappearance Renowned band leader Glenn Miller's disappearance in 1944 has led to some interesting speculation. On December 15, 1944, Miller, a major in the U.S. Army, and two other military personnel departed from an RAF base in England in a small aircraft bound for Paris. Miller was scheduled to meet with his band and begin a concert tour for U.S troops in recently liberated areas of France. Miller's airplane never arrived. No wreckage nor any bodies were ever found. The prevailing wisdom is that bad weather over the English Channel caused the plane to crash into the sea killing all aboard. Two other possibilities have emerged: That same day a squadron of bombers destined for Germany had their mission aborted because of the inclement weather. Unable to return with their payload of explosives, the squadron was ordered to jettison their bombs into the English Channel. Years later one aviator claimed some of the discarded bombs accidentally caused a small aircraft flying below the squadron--which could have been Miller's--to crash into the sea. A more lurid tale claims Miller landed safely in France but died of a heart attack in a Parisian brothel. According to this yarn, Miller's seedy death was covered up by the military for propaganda reasons. This latter rumor circulated during the war and was given new life when the German tabloid Bild reprinted the brothel tale in 1997. Miller biographers consider that story to be sheer nonsense. They rightly ask, 'What became of Flight Officer John Morgan and Lt. Col. Norman F. Baessell (the other two men aboard Miller's plane) who also vanished?'

Featured Member- SpruceMoose My name is Wayne. I was born in 1952 in a town about 40 miles east of Los Angeles, California. For the last 57 years, I have lived within shouting distance of Route 66. I have always been a big fan of trivia, especially history. A brief dabbling in genealogy revealed that I'm a direct descendant of Edward III, but my friend Dolores Cullen, a scholar of Geoffry Chaucer, was more impressed that the bard's first patron, John of Gaunt is something like my 19th great-grandfather. I was a member of the Loyal Order of Moose for quite some time, where my wife, Linda and I both served as officers. When she passed away I consoled myself with the internet, where I discovered YRT, and I'm also an habitue of Yahoo Answers, where I endure bad spelling and nonexistent punctuation in order to offer guidance to young people. My profile picture [avatar] is of me, taken in about 1963, judging from the roller skates and my godparents' 1962 Chevy that was originally in the background. Just to make myself a little more interesting, I am currently homeless, living in one motel room or another, or occasionally staying with a friend. I'm so old, I can remember when Knott's Berry Farm, Southern California's oldest theme park, had free admission, and you bought individual tickets for each attraction.

Magic Bullet Theory Debunked In its investigation of John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination, the Warren Commission concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone gunman. However, if you believe the Commission's findings, you have to believe Oswald, by himself, fired three shots from the Texas Schoolbook Depository in less than six seconds. The first shot missed, hitting a curbstone. The final shot was the fatal shot to Kennedy's head. The second shot must be a 'magic bullet' that caused multiple wounds to both JFK and Texas Governor John Connally. This report, from the A and E series Time Machine, debunks the ridiculous 'magic bullet' theory.

Zapruder Film of JFK Assassination--Very Graphic With Steve's permission, I am posting the most historically significant home movie ever taken: Abraham Zapruder's film of John F. Kennedy's 1963 assassination in Dallas. Be aware that the fatal shot is very, very graphic. (Zapruder's film is silent; the sound effects were added later.)

1905 Dawson City Nuggets One of the great sports stories of the twentieth century was the improbable challenge for the Stanley Cup made by the Dawson City Nuggets back in 1905. The Cup was still a challenge trophy at the time, and somehow a group of recreational hockey players from the distant Yukon Territory was granted permission by the Cup's trustees to play the powerful Ottawa Silver Seven for Lord Stanley's hardware in 1905. Now all they had to do was travel 4,400 miles to Ottawa for the best-of three series. The Nuggets made their way to the Canadian capital by bicycle, dog sled, boat, railroad, and on foot. They arrived in Ottawa exhausted just one day before the first game was scheduled. They promptly lost 9-2. The next game was even worse. The defending champs from Ottawa won 23-2. Frank McGee notched 14 goals for the winners.
