2Day in History

Today is Thursday, April 21, the 111th day of 2011. There are 254 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On April 21, 1910, author Samuel Langhorne Clemens, better known as Mark Twain, died in Redding, Conn., at age 74.

Ten years ago: The Los Angeles Xtreme beat the San Francisco Demons 38-6 in the first — and last — XFL championship game.

One year ago: Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was suspended for six games for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy. (Commissioner Roger Goodell handed down the punishment after prosecutors decided not to bring charges in a case involving a 20-year-old college student who’d accused Roethlisberger of sexually assaulting her.)

Goldfish-racing forced to end

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — The weekly goldfish races at a Tacoma bar are canceled after it received complaints from animal rights activists.

Every Tuesday night the Harmon Tap Room would feature races in which cheap feeder fish from a pet store were “raced” down two 8-foot troughs. Racers guided the fish with squirt bottles.

Bartender Joel Cummings told KIRO-FM the fish were cared for when they weren’t racing, but occasionally they would pass away.

After complaints by phone and email, the Harmon Tap Room replaced goldfish-racing with beer pong.
