Comment: Just read an interesting story that football legend Rosie Greer
was one of the bodyguards/people with Robert Kennedy the night Kennedy got
shot. And had at least a minor part in disarming Sirhan Sirhan. Since I
remember the incident, I'm rather sure the news media would have had a
field day with this, but then again?

D'oh!

Comment: I has to simple question: "Was Bill Clinton impeached?" Is that somewhere archived in your items or is it simply not there?

All I can say this question of whether Bill Clinton was impeached or not is a hot topic in Hollywood and you don't have it in you selection. Your site sounds bias not to have this answer.

I am aware that email is seven years old, but the answer is no. Kool-Aid was never used at the Jonestown Massacre, it was Flavor-Aid (a soft drink mix similar to Kool-Aid, though cheaper and not as 'flavorful'), cyanide and a sedative.

Another related UL, very few drank it willingly. In fact, it's hard to do anything 'willingly' when men are pointing guns at you and threatening to simply inject you with the mixture (which several had to be as they utterly refused to drink it).
