Never Interrupt Someone

Today in 1935, "Amelia Earhart became the first person to fly solo from Honolulu, Hawaii to Oakland, California. Although this transoceanic flight had been attempted by many others... her trailblazing flight had been mainly routine, with no mechanical breakdowns. In her final hours, she even relaxed and listened to a 'the broadcast of the Metropolitan Opera from New York.'" -- Wikipedia
