William Golding, "Lord of the Spire and Pincher Martin", born today in 1911.

Simon and Garfunkel reunited in Central Park, New York, today in 1981

William Joyce (a.k.a. Lord Haw-Haw), Nazi propagandist, sentenced to death, today in 1945 (see January 3)

Juan Peron, dictator of Argentina, ousted today in
