My grandparents and me on a hot Oklahoma Sunday afternoon in 1950 (94 degrees, according to WeatherUnderground). What were they reading on August 27? I'm not sure how the Norman Transcript wrote about this, but here are the lead paragraphs from the NYTimes on that date.
"Washington, Aug. 26 - Officers under Frank Pace Jr., Secretary of the Army, completed preparations today to seize the nation's railroads at 4 PM, Eastern Standard Time, tomorrow."
"The North Korean Communists renewed attacks, striking at the northern sectors of the United Nations defense line and hitting hard at South Korean divisions."
I was oblivious to all of it.
