I'm sorta surprised no one has mentioned it, but today is the 100th anniversary of what is likely to be one of the all-time most important dates in human history: 100 years ago today, at Kill Devil Hills near Kitty Hawk, NC, Wilbur, then Orville Wright became the first human beings to achieve powered flight. This was the first step toward so much of the wonderful things that have happened since, up to and including the lunar landings. On this day 100 years ago, we as a race slipped the surly bonds of this earth and rose into the wind. It is a truly wonderful day. Excuse me, I'm going to go sit in front of the tube and soak up all the cool shows on the History Channel.
