On This Date
In  1993 – Agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms raid the compound of the Branch Davidian church in Waco, Texas. They were attempting to serve an arrest warrant on leader David Koresh, who was suspected of stockpiling weapons. They didn’t succeed. A gun battle ensued and that was followed by a 51-day standoff. The siege would end on April 19th in a government raid that killed 76 Branch Davidians.

In 1967 – Wilt Chamberlain of the Philadelphia 76ers makes the last of an NBA record 35 consecutive field goals in a 127-107 win over the Cincinnati Royals – now the Sacramento Kings – in Syracuse, New York. Chamberlain had last missed a field goal in a February 17th game against Cincinnati. The record still stands.

In 1981 – Eddie Rabbitt is at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for the first of two consecutive weeks with I Love a Rainy Night. It was Rabbitt’s fourth of eight Top 40 hits and his only #1. Earlier, the song had spent a week at #1 on Billboard’s country chart, Rabbit’s eighth of 17 #1 hits on that chart. Rabbitt died of cancer in 1998, a death that was kept secret until his burial and that surprised even his agent, who had no idea Rabbitt was sick.

When the time comes for truth to speak, it may choose an unfamiliar tongue; the task is to heed what is said.
