2Day in History
Today is Friday, Oct. 1, the 274th day of 2010. There are 91 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: In the early hours of Oct. 1, 1910, the offices of the Los Angeles Times were destroyed when a bomb exploded, igniting a natural gas fire; 21 Times employees were killed. (The paper had been targeted because of its fiercely anti-union publisher, Harrison Gray Otis; iron worker James B. McNamara later pleaded guilty to planting the bomb and was sentenced to life in prison.)

Ten years ago: Pope John Paul II declared sainthood for 120 Chinese and foreign missionaries killed in the church’s five-century struggle in China. John Paul named three other new saints as well, including former American socialite Katharine Drexel.

Five years ago: Three suicide bombers struck three restaurants in Bali, Indonesia, killing 20 victims.
