The Day The Music Died

Sixty years ago today, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper (J. P. Richardson) were killed in a plane crash at Mason City, Iowa.  They chartered the plane because Buddy Holly was tired of sitting on a freezing cold bus. Waylon Jennings was supposed to be on the flight, but got bumped off by The Big Bopper. The last conversation between Buddy Holly and Waylon Jennings was :

Buddy : I hope you freeze your ass off on the bus
Waylon : Well, I hope your ol’ plane crashes

Sixty years ago today was the first day Virginia allowed black children to attend school with white children. And sixty years later they still have a racist Democratic governor.

A few hours after Buddy Holly’s crash, an airliner crashed in the East River, killing 65 people.
