"See how the hands grip the steering wheel, like he still thinks he could drive his way out of it?"

Today is the 99th anniversary of the birth of Jackson Pollock. Pollock, an artist known for his "dripping" technique, died in a car accident in 1956. Jane Lane was apparently a fan, or was at least interested enough to make his art and death the theme of the school dance in the episode "Daria Dance Party."

Quinn: What's this about?

Jane: Being young, carefree, having your whole life ahead of you, and dancing the night away to celebrate. Oh, and the untimely death of Jackson Pollock.

Quinn: Great! Some friend of yours bites it in a car crash and you take it out on me. My life is over, okay?

Today is also the 25th anniversary of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, in which seven crew members lost their lives after the shuttle broke apart after lift-off. May they rest in peace.
