Hope From History:
Sic Semper Tyrannis!

On this date:

Romanov family executed

Late on the night of July 16, Nicholas, Alexandra, their five children and four servants were ordered to dress quickly and go down to the cellar of the house in which they were being held. There, the family and servants were arranged in two rows for a photograph they were told was being taken to quell rumors that they had escaped. Suddenly, a dozen armed men burst into the room and gunned down the imperial family in a hail of gunfire. Those who were still breathing when the smoked cleared were stabbed to death.
Also on this date: First atomic bomb blowed up, 1945; Pedophilia gains foothold in California: First Catholic mission in California dedicated, 1769; Catcher in the Rye is published, 1951 (Fuck every one of you goddamn phonies!!); & in 1999 John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. died in his plane, along w/ his wife & sister-in-law. 18 yrs. already?
