Ready to get some history laid one you? In 1981 on this day President Reagan was shot. While he was in the hospital then Secretary of State Alexander Haig uttered the words "I am in control here." The media took off with it and Haig was forced to step despite the fact that his words were not shocking at all in the context of what he was saying. Thus I Am In Control Day was born.
Haig is mostly forgotten, but supposedly this day has evolved to be about taking control of life and getting organized. I on the other hand have decided it actually means it's time to launch my mind control device. World domination here I come. Step one: have everyone read these posts.
