A Dwarf Star Is Born


These columns are all about the 1995 Oklahoma City Bombing and the how it relates to the inception of this website – TOCC TV. The full original name in 1997 was “The O’Casey Chronicles” a play on the abbreviation for Oklahoma City, “OKC” – by adding the “O” to my Irish surname. When the time came to get my own domain, I simply abbreviated my version to “TOCC” added the “TV” domain, and developed my new logo(s) to including the fabled “lightening bolt.”

On April 19th of this year, already over 75,000 pilgrims had visited the OKC bombing memorial. That was just since its completion a few weeks earlier. It's only been two months since then, but it isn't hard to imagine that there must have been well over a half a million pilgrims by now. Although there surely must have been a large number of folks from the OKC area visiting, it has been reported that people have traveled from all parts of these great United States to pay homage.

The photos of Elton John were taken at the Myriad in Oklahoma City on October 30, 1999. Elton's temper tantrums are legendary amoung insiders, but it rarely ever shows in public. Click thru to see the star in rare form, the crowd rapturous with applause, he approached the front of the stage - without microphone - and bellowed out: "Here I am, come and get me you Son of a BITCH!"
