2Day in History

Today is Friday, May 27, the 147th day of 2011. There are 218 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On May 27, 1941, amid rising world tensions, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed an “unlimited national emergency” during a radio address from the White House. The British Royal Navy sank the German battleship Bismarck off France, with a loss of some 2,000 lives, three days after the Bismarck sank the HMS Hood.

Ten years ago: Indy rookie Helio Castroneves led teammate and fellow Brazilian Gil de Ferran in a 1-2 Roger Penske finish, giving the renowned owner a triumphant return to the Indianapolis 500.

Five years ago: A 6.3-magnitude earthquake in central Indonesia killed some 5,800 people.

One year ago: On the defensive more than five weeks into the nation’s worst-ever oil spill, President Barack Obama insisted his administration, not oil giant BP, was calling the shots in the still-unsuccessful response.
