Does anyone remember the Tylenol scare on this date back in 1982? In the Chicago area the first of seven people died after taking poison laced Tylenol capsules which frightened people all over the country. Remembering this incident after all these years made me wonder if the person responsible was ever caught and the answer is, no. This crime and the motive for it, is still unsolved.
Other major events for September 29 include: The US established a regular army, the cornerstone for the National Cathedral was laid, Pope John Paul 1 and Casey Stengel died, John Roberts sworn in as Chief Justice, Scotland Yard established.
All of these in different years and centuries but all on September 29.
