THE CURSE OF 420: Five Horrific Events Tied to Today’s Date

I always grow a bit weary in the early spring, specifically around the week of April 20th.  Having lived through three and half decades of world events, you could see why.

So, as you find yourself looking over your shoulder this afternoon, here are the five most disturbing things that have occurred on or around April 20th.
