Re: April 5th - Happy Birthday Mitch Pileggi


Today is Thursday, April 5, the 95th day of 2018. There are 270 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:
On April 5, 1764, Britain's Parliament passed The American Revenue Act of 1764, also known as the Sugar Act, which was repealed in 1766.

Ten years ago: President George W. Bush and Russian President Vladimir Putin opened farewell talks at Putin's heavily wooded retreat on the Black Sea. Actor Charlton Heston, big-screen hero and later leader of the National Rifle Association, died in Beverly Hills, Calif., at age 84.

Five years ago: Kansas legislators gave final passage to a sweeping anti-abortion measure declaring that life began "at fertilization." (Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback, a Republican, signed the measure two weeks later.) A federal judge in New York ordered the Food and Drug Administration to lift age restrictions on the sale of emergency contraception, ending a requirement that buyers show proof they were 17 or older if they wanted to buy it without a prescription. (After months of back-and-forth legal battles, the Obama administration agreed to lift the age limits.)

One year ago: President Donald Trump declared that a deadly chemical attack in Syria the day before had crossed "many, many lines" and abruptly changed his views of Syrian President Bashar Assad. But he refused to say what the U.S. might do in response. A senior [sign in to see URL]. defense official said a North Korean missile test ended in failure when the rocket spun out of control and plunged into the ocean in a fiery crash.. YouTube TV, Google's new streaming package of about 40 television channels, made its debut.
