50 years ago, 1963: Millions of television viewers watched in stunned horror as a murder was committed. It was undoubtedly the first time so many people witnessed a real life homicide as Dallas night club proprietor Jack Ruby shot down Lee Harvey Oswald, the man accused, but not convicted, of assassinating President Kennedy.

25 years ago, 1988: After sitting unused for a year and a half, the former Sandusky Post Office was purchased by Ed Feick for $60,000. The $60,000 bid was far below the $245,000 appraisal.

10 years ago, 2003: Someone was holding a little piece of paper worth $13 million. They bought it at Dave's Food Mart in Norwalk. The Ohio Lottery Commission notified the store that a customer purchased a $1 winning Super Lotto Plus ticket from that location. The winner still had not claimed the money.

Geez! And the SR 'finally' finds the delete key when they're caught. lol

Oh yeah, I said something about it being the day that reality TV was born, something like that...

there was nothing off topic about my comments. I commented on your photo of a black man shooting Oswald that you posted and removed.

Jason Werling

The photo that was posted was a mistake, plain and simple. When the photo was removed and replaced with the correct one, the comments associated with it were off topic and would not have made sense since the photo was removed.

Mistake? You're lucky Al Sharpton didn't see it.....

Where's your sense of humor? You got "punk'd."

IMO, the POLITE thing to do would be for you to THANK your commenters for alerting you.

Since you at that SR have rediscovered the "delete key" will you be enforcing your "Guidelines" once again?
