Today is November 4th. Happy Monday, he muttered. On November 4th, 1922 the entrance to King Tut’s tomb was uncovered by Howard Carter. Geraldo Rivera could not be reached for comment. Among the many priceless treasures and artifacts in the tomb were the famous sarcophagus and mask, the mummy of Tutankhamen himself, and a fawning fan letter from a young and precocious Nancy Pelosi. Yeesh, talk about a curse.
And speaking of great discoveries, please find this morning’s WWGO links below. As always, please consider this an Open Thread. Remember, we welcome any and all glowingly positive feedback.
