Today in history

Today is Friday, Nov. 2, the 307th day of 2012. There are 59 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1984, a local man was slashed by a knife-wielding man as he sat at a red light on Soledad Canyon Road. The man, who was with his girlfriend, claimed that a trio of men in a Ford Pinto had been gesturing with their hands, acting unruly and harassing the couple. The couple decided to continue on as if nothing was wrong, but the men persisted, and eventually assaulted the two once they stopped at the light.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 2, 1962, President John F. Kennedy delivered a brief statement to the nation in which he said that aerial photographs had confirmed that Soviet missile bases in Cuba were being dismantled, and that “progress is now being made toward the restoration of peace in the Caribbean.”

Ten years ago: President George W. Bush called Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein a “dangerous man” with links to terrorist networks, and said that U.N. inspections for weapons of mass destruction were critical.

Five years ago: Speaking at a graduation ceremony at Fort Jackson, S.C., President George W. Bush said U.S. military deaths had fallen to their lowest levels in 19 months and the Iraqi people were slowly “taking back their country” in the wake of the American troop buildup there. Michael Mukasey drew closer to becoming attorney general after two key Senate Democrats, Charles Schumer and Dianne Feinstein, said they would vote for him despite his refusal to say whether waterboarding was torture. Choreographer Igor Moiseyev, who transformed folk dance into a legitimate art, died in Moscow at age 101.

One year ago: The Congressional Gold Medal was awarded to some 19,000 Japanese-Americans who’d served in the 100th Infantry Battalion, the 442nd Regimental Combat Team and the Military Intelligence Service.
