The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow


August One - the day this blog launches.

This is also the day that MTV launched. The channel that once played music videos and kept the acid-washed jean companies afloat.

Here are some other big events from the first day of August in years gone by:

1291: The cantons of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden form a protective confederation that will become the nation of Switzerland.

1498: Columbus lands in South America

1914: First World War erupts

1944: Warsaw Revolt begins

1954: The Yangtze River floods in China, killing 40,000 people and forcing 10 million others to leave their homes.
