The LuLac Edition #1656, June 25th, 2011
We are going to try a little experiment today. Many of our readers are tiring of our regular Interview series. But in a poll taken by us, readers of LuLac wanted to keep the feature. To that end, since I spoke with no one interesting this week, we’ll introduce our “Last Saturday” feature which we will run on the last Saturday of the month.
On this day June 25th, here’s what happened in history.
Long-Haired Hare, starring Bugs Bunny, is released in theaters.
The final page of the comic Krazy Kat was published, exactly two months after its author George Herriman died.
The United States Congress passes the Mann Act, which prohibits interstate transport of females for “immoral purposes”; the ambiguous language would be used to selectively prosecute people for years to come.
Pope Cornelius is executed (beheaded) at Centumcellae.
The Diary of a Young Girl (better known as The Diary of Anne Frank) is published.
In 2009 Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett die on the same day.
Willis Reed, Carly Simon and Jimmie Walker the actor are born on this day.
