On Monday, December 13, 1999, the issue of Time with the basement tapes on the cover hit newsstands.

(Yes, the issue was dated Monday the 20th ... the cover date was always a week ahead of the publication date.)

On that date, I taped this from TV:


At the time, I got Time in the mail ... it always came on Tuesday.

I don't know if you know where you were on the evening of Tuesday, December 14, 1999, but I do ... I was devouring every letter of that article.

I remember it. I was only 10 at the time, but I remember hearing my parents talk about it, and seeing it on the news.

Do you still have the Time magazine? We used to get Time delivered in the mail too back then. I wish I would have saved it. Unfortunately, I didn't become interested in Columbine until years later.

You can pick up that issue of Time on eBay for about £30 (think that's about $40 maybe?).

Watch how it works: Pekka's videos were demonized as Nazis and even retreat requests were made, but columbine's went to TIME. Columbine is Overrated, a media product.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] (or anyone else), do you think it would be accurate to say that the reporter here (Rick Sallinger) was part of the group of media/press people who viewed the tapes? As in, he wasn't just reporting from outside on what they were telling him about the tapes? I'm working on a list of people who have seen the tapes and am wondering if I can safely add Rick Sallinger to my list.

I think so too. I just wanted to see if other people interpreted it the same way I did.

If one thing is evident, it is not necessary for others to accept it.
