Today in the SCV
Today is Saturday, July 23, the 204th day of 2011. There are 161 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On July 23, 1886, a legend was born as Steve Brodie claimed to have made a daredevil plunge from the Brooklyn Bridge into New York’s East River. (However, the exact circumstances of the jump are in dispute, with skeptics saying it never actually occurred.)

Ten years ago: Pope John Paul II urged President George W. Bush in their first meeting, held at Castel Gandolfo, Italy, to bar creation of human embryos for medical research.

Five years ago: Former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was hospitalized on the 17th day of a hunger strike; he appeared thinner but healthy at his trial a few days later.

One year ago: The city manager, assistant manager and police chief of Bell, Calif., agreed to resign after outraged residents found out through a Los Angeles Times investigation that they were making a total of more than $1.6 million a year.
