Top 10 Myths of Veritas Press
Top 10 lists can be funny things. David Letterman has made a reputation, maybe a career off of them. We even found a list of the Top 10 Top 10 Lists from Letterman’s show. And, while they are quite funny, we’re not going to provide you a link to them because some of them may be offensive. So, you’ll have to google it if you want to see it.
We also found and interesting site called TopTenz. We picked a fun list from the site that is more appropriate for us, you, and others you might share this with.
Here’s the link to the “Top 10 Historical Events We’ll Never See Again.” It’s a pretty interesting list:
10. Eugene Cernan – Last Apollo Astronaut to Walk on the Moon
9. Janet Parker – Last Person to Die From Smallpox
8. Charles Carroll – Last Surviving Signer of the Declaration of Independence
7. Rainey Bethea – Last Person to be Executed in Public in the United States

5. Adrian II – Last Married Pope
4. Last Prisoner to Leave Alcatraz
3. Last Day of the USSR
2. Last Death in WWI
1. Elizabeth Dean – Last Titanic Survivor

If you were looking for a serious blog post today, sorry. This time of year is busy for us. A little levity can go a long way help us through the busy season. No doubt you can appreciate that too.
