    What happened today in history 7-12-??

    1962 First performance of the Rolling Stones
    The British rock band performed for the first time as a group at the Marquee Club in London.
    I wasn't there, but I bet a buttload of females were.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disco_Demolition_Night

    Disco Demolition Night was an ill-fated baseball promotion on July 12, 1979, at Comiskey Park in Chicago, Illinois. At the climax of the event, a crate filled with disco records was blown up on the field between games of the twi-night doubleheader between the Chicago White Sox and the Detroit Tigers. Many of those in attendance had come to see the explosion rather than the games and rushed onto the field after the detonation. The playing field was so damaged by the explosion and by the fans that the White Sox were required to forfeit the second game to the Tigers.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    Before my semi-retirement, this was the kind of thing I did a lot of at RedState...
    You really have to ask why Conservatives have guns? Because Liberals block freeways, burn cities, throw Molotov cocktails, loot, turn over cop cars, and think this behavior is Socially Acceptable.

    Which was part of the "Battle of Kursk" which was the German "Operation Citadel", a German offensive that ended up being a disaster for them.
