Last night Megan “Jane Galt” McArdle, Ken “Illuminated Donkey” Goldstein and I, crossing Broadway without looking after a Paul Frankenstein-sponsored poker game, were nearly mown down by oncoming traffic, and it got me thinking: suppose we had all bit it? What would the magnitude of the loss be to the blogging community?
A. February 3, 1959: The Day the Music Died (Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, J.P. “Big Bopper” Richardson)
B. October 20, 1977: This Bird It Will Not Change (Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines)
C. March 5, 1963: Sweet Dreams Baby (Patsy Cline, Cowboy Copas, Hawkshaw Hawkins)
Patsy Cline was and is internationally renowned. Copas and Hawkins are known for dying in a plane crash with Patsy Cline. Exactly. Other suggestions welcome.
