2Day in History

Today is Tuesday, Sept. 14, the 257th day of 2010. There are 108 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:
On Sept. 14, 1814, Francis Scott Key wrote a poem after witnessing how Fort McHenry in Maryland had endured a night of British bombardment during the War of 1812; that poem, “Defence of Fort McHenry,” later became the lyrics to “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the American national anthem.

Ten years ago: President Bill Clinton said he was “quite troubled” by the way the Energy and Justice departments had handled the Wen Ho Lee case, and expressed his regrets.

One year ago:  Lecturing Wall Street on its own turf, President Barack Obama warned financial leaders not to use the recovering economy to race back into “reckless behavior” that could cause a new meltdown.
