A good restaurant, Corner Kitchen, sits one block from the WORLD offices in Asheville, N.C. Barack Obama ate dinner there in April 2010, and the eatery owner reported the event on a website page he headlined, “A Night to Remember” (with apologies to Walter Lord).
The Titanic went down 100 years ago, on April 15, 1912. It took just two hours and forty minutes for the sea to swallow the ship that “God Himself couldn’t sink.”
BELFAST, Northern Ireland -- Here, where Titanic, the massive White Star Line luxury liner, was built -- the joke for years has been, "It was fine when it left here." This year marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ship "Not even God himself could sink...." and the centenary is being observed in diverse ways.
