More on the end of the world

So apparently there's an email going around saying someone heard from their friend who bumped into someone from CNN who was recently at the Pentagon ... (you get the drill) ... that there's going to be a terrorist attack tomorrow, June 11. I didn't receive it myself, but I read about it on snopes, along with the usual, perfectly rational debunking.

And yet ... there's one detail in there that gave me pause to wonder. I was surprised when they announced that the NYSE would close tomorrow in honour of Reagan's death. Has the NYSE ever been closed for such a reason before? If not, this gives some small amount of credence to the rumour.

Apparently so; my girlfriend says that it has been closed for every other president's death as well. Not sure of her source on that though...
