Quirky quote of the day
“If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.” — Emma Goldman
Today in history
On this day in 1999, construction begins on a giant bonfire at Texas A&M University, the continuation of a tradition that began 90 years earlier.
Two days later, the bonfire collapsed, killing 12 students and injuring another 27.
Here’s the rest of the story:
Today — Sunny, with a high near 59. South wind between 10 and 20 mph.
Tonight — Mostly clear, with a low around 33. Southwest wind between 10 and 15 mph.
