Where were you?

When you heard Anna Nicole Smith died?

I was taking a bit of a nap, listening to WXRT when the dj broke the news. The events of 2/8 made me think of some other notable "where were you when you heard" moments in the last couple of decades that has shaped our generation. Here's a brief list:

Yanni and Linda Evans announce their love to the world on the Oprah Winfrey show

Baby Jessica McClure resurfaces after being stuck in a well for 58 hours

Michael Jackson is burned while filming a commercial for Pepsi

Nancy Kerrigan takes a pipe to the shin just weeks before the Olympics

The girl from "My Sister Sam" killed by a stalker

William Kennedy Smith arrested on rape charges

Prince and Appollonia split, Apollonia gets role on Falcon Crest

US Forces invade Grenada

Transfats determined to be bad for America's health

Coke abandons "New Coke" and brings back the old school formula, calling it Coke Classic

A phone conversation is intercepted between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles in which the Prince says he wishes he was a tampon so he could be completely encased in Camilla's whoo-ha
