1963

The U.S. postmaster introduced the five-digit ZIP (Zoning Improvement Plan) code!

1972

Alabama gave its first public performance as WILDCOUNTRY at the Canyon Land theme park in their hometown of Fort Payne, Alabama!

They’re absolutely the best country band of all-time!

2011

Maria Shriver filed divorce papers to end her marriage to Arnold Schwarzenegger! The divorce happened after it was revealed Arnold fathered a child with the family’s nanny. Yikes!

I bet he wished it was:
