2day in history
Today is Wednesday, Sept. 15, the 258th day of 2010. There are 107 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 15, 1940, during the World War II Battle of Britain, the tide turned as the Royal Air Force inflicted heavy losses against the Luftwaffe, forcing Adolf Hitler to indefinitely postpone his plans to invade Britain.

Ten years ago: The 2000 Summer Olympics opened in Sydney, Australia, with a seemingly endless parade of athletes and coaches and a spectacular display.

One year ago: Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the worst recession since the 1930s was “very likely over,” although he cautioned that pain would persist. An unrepentant Muntadhar al-Zeidi, the Iraqi reporter who’d thrown his shoes at President George W. Bush in Dec. 2008, was freed from prison.

A great reason to just say no
SHIRLEY, New York (AP) — Police on Long Island said a mother left her 1-year-old child alone in a car for more than 40 minutes while she was inside her home smoking marijuana. Police said they got a call at around noon Monday of a toddler that had been left alone in a car parked in front of a home in Shirley.
When they arrived, they found the boy in the backseat and the child’s mother, 43-year-old Karen Edelmann, inside her home smoking pot.
Police said Edelmann was arrested on charges of endangering the welfare of a child, marijuana possession and resisting arrest. She was being held overnight and is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday. Police did not know if she had a lawyer.
