36 years ago on this vary day Ronald Reagan was shot by John Hinckley Jr. his reason for this was because he was trying to impress actress Jodie Foster after seeing the movie Taxi Driver (a good movie by the way). Something even weirder was 9 days before he was shot Reagan and his wife visited Ford's theater (the place where Lincoln was killed) kinda nuts isn't it anyways that was my trivial fact of the day.
