Two Roads Diverged In A Yellow Wood

I took the one less traveled by
-Robert Frost, American Poet  (1874 - 1963)

I learned of the death of two men this morning-both infamous in their own way. First, David Greenglass (1922-2014), whose false testimony sent his sister, Ethel Rosenberg, to the electric chair in the early 1950s.

Second, Tommy Lewis (1931- 2014), who came off the bench during the 1954 Cotton Bowl to tackle an opposing player and stopping what would have been a 95 yard touchdown run. Although, doing so did not stop the referee from awarding the opposing player credit for the touchdown.

Rest In Peace, Tommy Lewis. Burn in Hell, David Greenglass.
