In addition to the heroism, defiance, and tragedy at Tiananmen Square, today is significant as the anniversary of another illustration of humanity at its most raw. Thirty-five years ago, on June 4, 1974, the Cleveland Indians hosted "Ten Cent Beer Night" at Municipal County Stadium.
Think of a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese, on the hottest night of the summer, with seating for 25,000. Only worse.
