What do the Texas Rangers, Lee Harvey Oswald & D.B. Cooper share in common? All three share an anniversary on November 24th.

Curious to learn more about the Texas Rangers, Lee Harvey Oswald and D.B. Cooper? Read on to find out about these and other interesting tales from November 24th.

The Texas Ranger Story | Texas State History Museum

         1835 – The Texas Provincial Government authorizes the creation of a horse-mounted police force called the Texas Rangers (now known as the Texas Ranger Division of the Texas Department of Public Safety).

         1859 – Charles Darwin publishes On the Origin of Species.

         1932 – In Washington, D.C., the FBI Scientific Crime Detection Laboratory (better known as the FBI Crime Lab) officially opens.

         1963 – In the first live, televised murder, Lee Harvey Oswald, the alleged assassin of President John F. Kennedy, is murdered two days after the assassination, by Jack Ruby in the basement of Dallas police department headquarters.

         1969 – Apollo program: The Apollo 12 command module splashes down safely in the Pacific Ocean, ending the second manned mission to land on the Moon.

         1971 – During a severe thunderstorm over Washington state, a hijacker calling himself Dan Cooper (aka D. B. Cooper) parachutes from a Northwest Orient Airlines plane with $200,000 in ransom money. He has never been found.

While these interesting facts about the Texas Rangers, Lee Harvey Oswald and D.B. Cooper on November 24th have nothing to do with my real estate business selling Silicon Valley homes to families in San Jose, Cupertino and Saratoga in Santa Clara County, Calif., they add fun and entertainment to life.

Ed, 

I know what you mean. Some local men even named a bar DB Coopers, hoping to "strike it rich" as well.
