2Day in History

Today is Wednesday, Jan. 5, the fifth day of 2011. There are 360 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 5, 1896, an Austrian newspaper, Wiener Presse, reported the discovery by German physicist Wilhelm Roentgen of a type of radiation that came to be known as “X-rays.”

Ten years ago: In a blizzard of last-minute executive orders, President Bill Clinton curtailed road building and logging on federal forest land and reorganized the nation’s counterintelligence efforts.

One year ago: President Barack Obama scolded 20 of his highest-level officials over the botched Christmas Day terror attack on an airliner bound for Detroit, taking them jointly to task for “a screw-up that could have been disastrous” and should have been avoided.
