For me it's the Nixon impeachment. I don't think I really understood that one until Gerald Ford took over.

The death of Terry Fox in 1981. I was five years old. Big news in Canada, made even more poignant in my home because my mom was a cancer survivor and she was really rooting for Terry.

Reagan getting shot. I was waiting for a Bugs Bunny Easter special to air and it never did because of the news coverage. It was the first time a politician screwed me over.

I really don't remember the Kennedy assassination but I clearly remember watching the Beatles on Ed Sullivan only 3 months later. I remember the nightly news reports with that days casualty reports from Vietnam. The 1968 Presidential election stands out to me because we ran mock elections in our 5th grade class to learn about it. I vividly remember the moon landing. Not a truly major news story but I remember the Jets beating the Colts in Superbowl III and I remember every little thing about the 1969 Miracle Mets season.

Maris hits 61. If a sports story doesn't count as "major",  then the Cuban missile crisis.

Fall of the Berlin wall. Saw many happy people so I was happy as well. Yay
