The BagOfNothing.com guy finds some good stuff. Including this. A newly surfaced 24 year old home video of the Challenger disaster. I was in law school at the time and was able to pick up KRLD -- which I normally had on in the background of my apartment. Back then, a space shuttle launch was a big deal but for some reason the station was about a minute late in cutting to the coverage. When they did, I'll never forget (the now deceased) correspondent Christopher Glenn saying, "There's something definitely wrong here." From there, I raced to the TV but there were no "all news stations" following the story. I simply turned the dial (yep, turned) to either ABC, CBS or NBC and waited for the network to break in and change the screen to read "Breaking News." Which it did in about three minutes. That, in itself, was a weird experience.
