It's Friday, Oct. 20, Information Overload Day. Happy birthday to singer/songwriter Tom Petty (1950-2017), who left us far too soon. Today in 1968, OSU track star Dick Fosbury won the gold medal using an unorthodox high-jump style to set an Olympic record of 7-foot-4¼ in the Mexico City summer games. A fall storm is whipping through, so expect lots of rain, possible thunderstorms and gusty winds, with a high in the mid 50s. Play your Tom Petty music loud today:
