Where were you went you heard that Ronald Reagan died?
I think I hear it on the radio while I was driving. Or maybe getting up. Or I could have read it in a journal. I don't remember.

Where were you on September 11, 2001?
I was sitting at the computer since I wasn't working at the time. I read in a journal that there had been a terrorist attack. I remember running to turn on the TV after I realized that Dad was in Washington, D.C. at the time. I spent all day watching that footage.

Where were you when you heard that Princess Diana died?
I think I heard about it from the news, but I don't really remember. I do remember seeing a picture of the car after the accident. Why does no one ever refer to the other people involved in that crash?

Do you remember where you were when you heard Kurt Cobain had died?
Nope. I think there was a big thing about it, since I was so close to the site, but really I never liked Nirvana.

Take one for The Gipper: What's your favorite flavor of jelly bean?
Licorice. Unless it's a Jelly Belly and then I can never decide. One of the fruit ones.

Where were you when the Berlin Wall came down?
Sadly, I can't really remember this one either. I remember talking about it in German class in high school and visiting the remains when I was there. I remember the footage, but it didn't occur to me that it was important since I didn't understand the politics. I remember the Challenger exploding much better.
