Ten random things: June 29

Ten notable events of 1932:

  1. The Sydney Harbour Bridge opened
  2. Charles Lindbergh Jr. was kidnapped and murdered
  3. The Buck Rogers in the 25th Century radio series premiered
  4. The first federal gas tax was enacted
  5. Carl D. Anderson discovered the positron
  6. Adolph Hitler obtained German citizenship
  7. The Cipher Bureau broke the German Enigma cipher
  8. Franklin Delano Roosevelt elected President of the United States
  9. Herbert Hoover ordered the U.S. Army to disperse the Bonus Army
  10. Radio City Music Hall opened in New York City

My friend Jehan doesn't think it's esoteric to know that the Lindbergh baby was kidnapped in 1932. I would tend to agree, but I'm not the best judge of such things. What do you think?
