Princeton WannaBe Blog

I'm not a real historian.   I didn't grow up in Princeton.    I don't have an Ivy League education.   

I'm a total Princeton WannaBe. 

Still, I gush about loving the heart of Princeton as much as I can!


 

 


Today Only FOREVER AGO,

 

 

Today in history was the first train robbery in America!  Yes, in 1866 the Reno gang were the first to stop a moving train in Indiana and grab the goods ....

Ever wonder when the LAST train robbery happened? 

It occured on our very own DINKY!  I KNOW!

 

 

 

Princeton University prankster, George Bunn (from the great class of 1963), along with three buds, dressed up like cowboys and rode horses down to the Dinky train tracks.  The boys  "stole" dates for their lawn parties and rode back through campus to listen to Bo Didley!!  (You can't make this up.  Go ahead and Google it .... last train robbery in America ..... you'll see George Bunn did ALOT more than rob trains ..... something about a pet ocelet and a bull dozer ..... ANYHOO!)

Photo'd here is Stosh's uber cool Princeton Regional School Riverside elementary principal!  He's dressed as a cowboy during last year's Halloween parade.
