LIC at night.

A humble narrator is taking a short break this week, and single images will be greeting you through the July 4th Holiday week while I’m out shvitzing and photographing things.

Today is July 2nd, and just like the rest of the calendar, there’s always a series of events that occurred over the centuries which seems to suggest that history might not be all that random. Alternatively, it probably is, and it’s the nature of human beings to attempt to form ordered patterns out of chaos.

  • 1776 – American Revolution: The Continental Congress adopted a resolution severing ties with the Kingdom of Great Britain. The formal Declaration of Independence is not published until July 4.
  • 1881 – Charles J. Guiteau shoots and fatally wounds U.S. President James Garfield.
  • 1890 – The U.S. Congress passes the Sherman Antitrust Act.
  • 1962 – The first Wal-Mart store opens for business in Rogers, Arkansas.

It’s also World UFO Day.
