Today in history
Today is Tuesday, Aug. 9, the 221st day of 2011. There are 144 days left in the year.
Today’s Highlight in History: On Aug. 9, 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt received British Prime Minister Winston Churchill aboard the USS Augusta off Newfoundland; although the two had once met briefly years earlier, this was their first encounter as the leaders of their respective countries. (The next day, Roosevelt visited Churchill aboard his ship, the HMS Prince of Wales.) The talks resulted in the Atlantic Charter defining goals for a post-war world.
Ten years ago: A suicide bomber detonated his explosives in a central Jerusalem pizzeria, killing himself and 15 other people. President George W. Bush approved federal funding only for existing lines of embryonic stem cells.
Five years ago: The White House said neither Israel nor Hezbollah should escalate their month-old war, as Israel decided to widen its ground invasion in southern Lebanon. Physicist James A. Van Allen, discoverer of the radiation belts surrounding the Earth that now bear his name, died in Iowa City, Iowa, at age 91.
One year ago: Former Alaska Sen. Ted Stevens, 86, the longest serving Republican in the U.S. Senate, was killed in a plane crash in the southwestern part of his state while on his way to a fishing trip (four others also died in the crash outside Dillingham). A fed-up JetBlue flight attendant, Steven Slater, cursed out a passenger he said had treated him rudely, grabbed a beer and slid down the emergency chute of an Embraer 190 at New York’s Kennedy Airport.
