It was twenty years ago today....

Well, tomorrow, actually, but I probably won't be blogging, and I didn't want to miss commemorating the Challenger astronauts. I remember being at school, where some kids had actually gone outside to watch the launch, and how traumatized some of them were. From central Florida, you could usually see a huge, thick column of smoke, with a tiny shiny bit riding on top of it when the shuttles would launch from Cape Canaveral. By the time I got outside on that day, there was just a big, messy, angular cloud that seemed to hang there forever, horrifying.
