2Day in History

Today is Friday, Oct. 15, the 288th day of 2010. There are 77 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 15, 1860, 11-year-old Grace Bedell of Westfield, N.Y., wrote a letter to presidential candidate Abraham Lincoln, suggesting he could improve his appearance by growing a beard. (The rest, as they say, is history.)

Ten years ago: President Bill Clinton left Washington for emergency talks in Egypt with Israeli and Arab leaders.

Five years ago: Iraqis voted to approve a constitution.

One year ago:
A report of a 6-year-old Colorado boy trapped inside a runaway helium balloon captivated the nation before the boy, Falcon Heene, was found safe at home in what turned out to be a hoax. (Falcon’s parents served up to a month in jail.)
