2Day in History
Today is Tuesday, June 8, the 159th day of 2010. There are 206 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On June 8, 1967, during the Six-Day War, 34 U.S. servicemen were killed when Israeli fighter jets and torpedo boats attacked the USS Liberty, a Navy intelligence-gathering ship stationed in the Mediterranean. (Israel later said the Liberty had been mistaken for an Egyptian vessel.)

Ten years ago:
Two gunmen shot to death Brig. Stephen Saunders, a British defense attache, in Athens, Greece; the elusive terrorist group November 17 claimed responsibility, saying it killed Saunders because of his role in NATO airstrikes against Yugoslavia.

One year ago: North Korea’s highest court sentenced American journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee to 12 years’ hard labor for trespassing and “hostile acts.”

AP Odd News
Lunch in the lavatory

BOSTON (AP) — Boston parks officials are hoping the public can overcome the gross-out factor and get used to the thought of having a bite to eat in a former public restroom. The Boston Herald reported that the city’s Parks and Recreation Commission was scheduled to go before state lawmakers on Tuesday to ask permission to lease two former public bathrooms on city land for possible use as eateries.

The “Pink Palace,” a 660-square-foot mausoleum-like structure on the Common, and the granite, 670-square-foot “Duck House” in the Back Bay Fens have not been used as bathrooms in decades.

They both need extensive renovations, but some city officials think they are prime spots for privately run, limited-service restaurants.

Speed camera foe buys Tenn. city’s police website

BLUFF CITY, Tenn. (AP) — After a Tennessee police department let its website expire, the site was snatched up by a new owner — a man who uses it to gripe about traffic cameras that issue speeding tickets.

Computer network designer Brian McCrary says he discovered the Bluff City Police Department site was up for grabs, so he paid domain provider Go Daddy for the rights to www.bluffcitypd.com.

McCrary, who says he received a $90 speeding citation earlier this year, took over the site May 22.

His site now shows a smiling cartoon police badge clutching green currency. It also posts gripes from others who’ve been cited.

Police Chief David Nelson said the officer who managed the site had been on medical leave and the expiration slipped up on the department.

NY couple weds in shark tank
RIVERHEAD, N.Y. (AP)  — A New York couple has taken the plunge inside a shark tank.

April Pignataro and Michael Curry were lowered in a steel cage into the tank to exchange their wedding vows at Atlantis Marine World in Riverhead, N.Y, on Sunday.
