33 Years Ago Today

John Lennon was killed by a disgusting little puke whose name is not fit to mention. John's legacy lives on with me, a Beatlemaniac to the end.

T-Town Sites 10

Mount Rainier is visible from anywhere in Tacoma, assuming a tree or building isn't blocking your view. But the best place to see it, in my opinion, is across the flightline of McChord Field. With two miles of flat ground before the nearest tree line, you can see not only the mountain but a large swath of the Cascade Mountain Range. Rainier is a volcano about 60 miles away as the crow flies, and I hope it doesn't have any plans to blow its top any time soon.
