Old Best Dreams

"In the late spring of 1927, something bright and alien flashed across the sky. A young Minnesotan who seemed to have nothing to do with his generation did a heroic thing, and for a moment people set down their glasses in country clubs and speakeasies and thought of their old best dreams."

--F. Scott Fitzgerald on Charles Lindberg's solo-crossing which happened on this day
