    "Well, I guess I won't be the first journalist in space."
    My boss' reaction that day when he walked in and saw everybody gathered around the TV in numb silence. (He actually applied.)

    Before 9/11, Challenger and the death of Len Bias were my "Where were you....? moments.

    We were out of school that day, and I was at the local rec center playing hoops. Came out for a drink of water, and there were dozens of folks surrounding the TV.

    Sad, sad day. Then I believe it was Doug Marlette's cartoon the next day, depicting the eagle with a tear coming out of one its eyes, that it truly sank in how tragic it was.
