2Day in History
Today is Friday, April 23, the 113th day of 2010. There are 252 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History: On April 23, 1910, former President Theodore Roosevelt delivered his famous "Man in the Arena" speech at the Sorbonne in Paris. In it, Roosevelt declared, "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena."

Ten years ago: Twenty-one tourists and workers were kidnapped from a Malaysian diving resort by Abu Sayyaf rebels.

Five years ago: Recently created website YouTube uploaded its first video, consisting of 19 seconds of co-founder Jawed Karim in front of an elephant pen at the San Diego Zoo.

Police find suspect neck-deep in manure
ALBION, Ind. (AP) - Police said that officers searching for a man wanted on methamphetamine charges found him hiding neck-deep in a liquid manure pit at a northeastern Indiana farm. Noble County sheriff's deputies thought they'd lost the man until an officer spotted him in the tank beneath an outbuilding floor on the farm near Albion.

Chief Deputy Doug Harp said the man, 52, had been neck-deep in the combination of hog and dog feces for at least an hour Tuesday evening. He later became combative and had to be shocked twice with a stun gun.

The suspect was treated at a hospital for hypothermia before he being taken to jail.

A Steuben County magistrate on Wednesday ordered the suspect held without bail because he missed court hearings in February and March.

Wrong number leads Zambian diplomat to NJ school
WEST ORANGE, N.J. (AP) - Talk about diplomacy.

The Zambian ambassador to the United Nations made a speech Wednesday at New Jersey's West Orange High School to make amends for dialing the wrong phone number.

In the fall, Ambassador Lazarous Kapambwe was trying to reach a diplomat from Sierra Leone. But the number he dialed was one digit off. He ended up calling Logan Svitzer, a student who was sitting in his U.S. history class at the school.

His teacher, Robbin Sweeney, was so annoyed that she called the number and got the ambassador. She thought it was a prank - and spent 10 minutes on the phone with him to verify who he was.

Kapambwe spoke at the school to make up for the inconvenience. He told students about Zambia, and urged them to consider diplomatic service as a career.
