2Day in History

Today is Wednesday, Aug. 11, the 223rd day of 2010. There are 142 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On Aug. 11, 1965, rioting and looting that claimed 34 lives broke out in the predominantly black Watts section of Los Angeles.

Ten years ago: The National Transportation Safety Board released evidence reports in the Oct. 31, 1999, crash of EgyptAir Flight 990 off the New England coast; a transcript of the cockpit voice recording showed the chilling details of the pilot’s futile struggle to save the Boeing 767 and its 217 occupants.

Five years ago: President George W. Bush expressed sympathy for war protesters like Cindy Sheehan, the mother camped outside his Texas ranch demanding more answers for her soldier-son’s death in Iraq, but said he believed it would be a mistake to bring U.S. troops home immediately.
