December 31, 1984; Bernhard Goetz, dubbed the "subway vigilante" after he shot four young black men on a New York City subway train, turns himself in at a police station in Concord, New Hampshire. Goetz claimed that the men, all of whom had criminal records, were trying to rob him and that he had acted in self-defense. At the time, New York was in the midst of a crime wave and Goetz was viewed by some people as a hero, an ordinary citizen fighting back against his attackers. Taking the law into your own hands is never a wise decision. I agree; and yet I don't remember what happened to our illustrious Mr. Goetz?  He spent a year in prison, before running for Mayor of NYC in 2001 and Public Advocate in 2005. He is involved in squirrel rescue, installs squirrel houses, feeds squirrels, and performs first aid. He also runs a company Vigilante Electronics.squirrels?...here we go with the squirrels again...say, have I already replied to this post again or maybe I dreamt it? I think I am dreaming now.

1514 - Andreas Vesalius, Brussels Belgium, anatomist (Fabrica) – first anatomist I think so...vesalius...hmm?...isn't that the muscle that enables you to wiggle your ears...or maybe it's the one you curl your tongue with?...I get confused it's OK, eat your pudding and go lie down for a while I tink you might be tryig to hurt my feelings why, don't you like pudding? hahaha, could you please read me another story before you tuck me in?
1937 - Anthony Hopkins, Port Talbot, Glamorgan, actor (Elephant Man, QB VII, Magic, Bounty) – great actor he is a "Sir"...and yes he is very great...is partial to fava beans and chianti and unique mystery meats  ewwww yes, I know, try not to think about it or you'll have very bad dreams
1942 - Andy Summers, Blackpool England, rock guitarist (Police-Roxanne) – excellent guitarist excellent group...should never have split up...maybe they will do a reunion tour I'll make some calls thanks, kep us posted  still haven't heard back from them s' okay...no problemo...we've got all day or all year...which ever comes last
1951 - Tom Hamilton, Colorado Springs Co, rock bassist (Aerosmith-Dream On) knew a Methodist minister by this name...probably no relation? probably at age 82 he wander off in Allegany State Park...found bits and pieces of him almost six months later...had to help identify him...don't ask  ewww again surprisingly, did not have bad dreams after this incident
1962 - Heather McCartney, British activist – Sir Paul’s girl was a Mills...with an odd leg; or am I confused again?
