Last night I was up late watching TV and at midnight came across the retelling of the O.J. Simpson trial. Basically, it was a documentary on the events in the court room from almost 20 years ago. For some reason like the nine months of real time testimony back in 1995 this one hour look back captured me in the same way.

Who is the Girl in the Photo with Amelia Earhart? [photos]

This past Saturday (August 2) was an event to honor the 80th anniversary of Amelia Earhart’s visit to Maine.
