luscious_purple: Boston STRONG! (Boston Strong)

And now, everyone who was born in a year beginning with 18 is dead. Since today is the day after what would have been my grandmother's 127th birthday, it seems appropriate somehow.

Today is also the fourth anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, right around the corner, practically, from the building where I rented a room in an apartment during the summer of 1979. I have the Netflix DVD of the Mark Wahlberg movie at home, but I don't think it's going to get watched this weekend, not with the new Doctor Who episode tonight.

Wow. RIP, 19th century babies. I knew many people born in the 1800's growing up. I was born in 1978...when will THAT be a thing that raises eyebrows?

When I was a kid - granted, this was a very long time ago - I would read the paper (yes, I did) and paid particular attention to the obituaries, and was always interested in which of the recently deceased was born the longest time ago. At that time there were still plenty of people around who were born before the Civil War.
