Welcome and happy “90th Anniversary of Amelia Earhart’s first solo flight across the Atlantic” week! She was already the first woman to fly across the Atlantic as a passenger, and then as a pilot with a co-pilot, so this was about securing the solo record. It took her 17 hours to fly from Newfoundland to Wales in a Lockheed Vega plane that was still mostly made from wood and glue.
It’s a strange day to do a twee writeup of upcoming video game releases. There is no anniversary of greater importance this week than the one so many are making right now. Solidarity to all the folks on the front line of the fight against racism and police brutality. No justice, no peace.
Welcome, and happy “55th Anniversary of the Ali-Liston fight” week! Muhammad Ali’s first fight as Muhammad Ali was a first-round knockout with a punch so fast, people doubted its very existence. You may all celebrate by playing an online boxing game with terrible lag.
