Lee Harvey Oswald was born in 1939 today. I only knew that because the goo game has that "Today in the Game" box on the main menu. Both my parents were born in 1939, August and December. That means that when Kennedy was assassinated, my mom was 23 and my dad was 24, the same age that I am now. I wonder how I would handle a presidential assassination... probably by not caring, which I think is how my parents handled it.
