Re: January 29th


Today is Wednesday, Jan. 29, the 29th day of 2014. There are 336 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:
On Jan. 29, 1964, Stanley Kubrick's nuclear war satire "Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb," starring Peter Sellers (in three roles) and George C. Scott, premiered in New York, Toronto and London.

Ten years ago: An accidental explosion at a weapons cache near the Afghan village of Dehe Hendu killed eight U.S. soldiers. A suicide bomber struck a bus in Jerusalem, killing ten Israelis. In a prisoner exchange, Israel freed 400 Palestinians and about 30 other Arabs while Hezbollah released a kidnapped Israeli businessman and the bodies of three Israeli soldiers. British author M.M. Kaye died in Lavenham, England, at age 95.

Five years ago: Declaring that ending pay disparity is not just a women's issue, President Barack Obama signed The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, giving workers more time to take their pay discrimination cases to court. The Illinois Senate voted, 59-0, to convict Gov. Rod Blagojevich (blah-GOY'-uh-vich) of abuse of power and throw him out of office nearly two months after the second-term Democrat's arrest on charges of trying to sell Barack Obama's vacant Senate seat.

One year ago: BP PLC closed the book on the Justice Department's criminal probe of its role in the Deepwater Horizon disaster and Gulf of Mexico oil spill, with a U.S. judge agreeing to let the London-based oil giant plead guilty to manslaughter charges for the deaths of 11 rig workers and pay a record $4 billion in penalties. The Senate overwhelmingly confirmed President Barack Obama's choice of five-term Sen. John Kerry to be secretary of state, 94-3. (Kerry voted present.) A hostage crisis began in Midland City, Ala., as retired truck driver Jimmy Lee Dykes kidnapped 5-year-old Ethan Gilman off a school bus after killing the driver, Charles Poland; Dykes held the boy inside an underground bunker for six days until authorities moved in, killing Dykes and rescuing the child.

Today's Birthdays: Feminist author Germaine Greer is 75. Actress Katharine Ross is 74. Feminist author Robin Morgan is 73. Actor Tom Selleck is 69. Rhythm-and-blues singer Bettye LaVette is 68. Actor Marc Singer is 66. Actress Ann Jillian is 64. Rock musician Tommy Ramone (Ramones) is 62. Rock musician Louie Perez (Los Lobos) is 61. Rhythm-and-blues/funk singer Charlie Wilson is 61.

Irina Slutskaya won a sixth title at the European Figure Skating Championships.

Five years ago: In a remarkably sharp face-to-face confrontation, President Barack Obama chastised Republican lawmakers during a GOP event in Baltimore for opposing him on taxes, health care and the economic stimulus, while they accused him in turn of brushing off their ideas and driving up the national debt.
