Re: July 7th - Happy Birthday Ringo Starr, Amy Carlson and Jorja Fox


Today is Saturday, July 7, the 188th day of 2018. There are 177 days left in the year.

Today's Highlights in History:
On July 7, 1940, Richard Starkey aka Ringo Starr, drummer for The Beatles and the Ringo Starr All-Starr Band, was born in Liverpool, England. He has twice been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Beatles and as a solo artist. Starr constantly flashes the peace sign. Today at noon, everyone is supposed to flash the peace sign and say, yell, scream, shout the words “pace and love, peace and love” because God knows we need more of it even if it’s just a simple gesture.

On July 7, 1865, four people were hanged in Washington, D.C. for conspiring with John Wilkes Booth to assassinate President Abraham Lincoln: Lewis Powell (aka Lewis Payne), David Herold, George Atzerodt and Mary Surratt, the first woman to be executed by the federal government.

10 years ago in 2008: A suicide bomber struck the Indian Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, killing at least 60 people. President George W. Bush met Russian President Dmitry Medvedev for the first time at the Group of Eight summit in Hokkaido, Japan. Actress Nicole Kidman gave birth to a girl; she and her husband, country star Keith Urban, named their daughter Sunday Rose Kidman Urban.

5 years ago in 2013: A de Havilland DHC-3 Otter air taxi crashed after taking off from Soldotna, Alaska, killing all 10 people on board. Andy Murray became the first British man in 77 years to win the Wimbledon title, beating Novak Djokovic 6-4, 7-5, 6-4 in the final.

1 year ago in 2017: Islamic militants attacked a remote Egyptian army outpost in the Sinai Peninsula with a suicide car bomb and heavy machine gun fire, killing at least 23 soldiers in the deadliest attack in the turbulent region in two years. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed Hawaii's attempt to challenge Trump administration rules for a travel ban on citizens from six majority-Muslim countries, saying it didn't have jurisdiction to address the issue.
