2Day in History

Today is Tuesday, July 6, the 187th day of 2010. There are 178 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On July 6, 1885, French scientist Louis Pasteur tested an anti-rabies vaccine on nine-year-old Joseph Meister, who had been bitten by an infected dog; the boy did not develop rabies.

Ten years ago: The German parliament offered a formal apology to Nazi-era slave and forced laborers as it passed a bill setting up a $5 billion compensation fund.

Five years ago: New York Times reporter Judith Miller was jailed after refusing to testify before a grand jury investigating the leak of undercover CIA operative Valerie Plame’s identity (Miller was jailed for 85 days before agreeing to testify). London was selected to host the 2012 Olympics.

NEW CASTLE, Delaware (AP) — A couple of fishing buddies from Delaware have been catching more than just bass. They’ve been helping police reel in cars.
Larry Newirth and Dan Cathell spotted a white BMW 750 sedan on June 17. Then on Friday, they found a late-model Honda Accord.
Police say the cars were stolen and abandoned. No arrests have been made.
Newirth, a 63-year-old retired carpenter, jokes that he and Cathell better stop finding cars or the police will think they’re the ones stealing them.
Cathell, a 44-year-old millwright, says he hopes the thieves stop dumping the cars from the boat ramp so police don’t close the dock to the public.

AP Odd News
San Diego homeowner finds naked man asleep on sofa
SAN DIEGO (AP) — A San Diego resident awoke to a shocking discovery: a naked stranger passed out on his downstairs sofa.

San Diego police Lt. Jim Filley says the Pacific Beach homeowner called police after wandering downstairs Sunday morning and finding the snoring man.

Filley says the naked man was drunk and thought he was in his own home in Mission Valley, some 20 miles away.

The man, whose name wasn’t released, had taken off his clothes outside the house and walked in through the unlocked front door.

The homeowner declined to press charges. And since the intruder had sobered up, he was released to find his own way home.

Egyptian farmer calls two-headed calf ‘a miracle’ 
CAIRO (AP) — A farmer in northern Egypt says his cow has given birth to a two-headed calf that he calls a “divine miracle.”

Sobhy el-Ganzoury said Saturday it took two hours and much pulling to deliver the rare calf. He said the difficult birth has weakened the calf’s legs.

El-Ganzoury said the veterinarian informed him that the calf, which was born this week, is now in stable condition and is expected to survive. He said he intends to keep the animal as a reminder that “God is able to do anything.”

The calf still can’t stand up because of its heavy heads and weak legs, and is being fed her mother’s milk with a baby bottle.

Nevada officials investigating prison fundraiser
CARSON CITY, Nevada (AP) — State prison officials are investigating reports that a fundraiser at the Nevada State Prison featured scantily clad female band members and a motorcycle that was brought into the yard for inmate pictures.

Nevada Department of Corrections spokeswoman Suzanne Pardee says the agency’s inspector general’s office is interviewing staff to find out what happened during the June 26 barbecue and fundraiser hosted by the Vietnam Veterans of America. It was unclear what the event was raising money for, and a message left Sunday at the Vietnam Veterans of
America state headquarters wasn’t immediately returned.
