Today in history

Today is Tuesday, Nov. 13, the 318th day of 2012. There are 48 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 2008, Saugus High School student Todd Davis arrived to his gym locker to find it covered with anti-Semitic taggings and gay slurs. The incident was the source of much controversy, and was directly addressed by Saugus principal Bill Bolde.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 13, 1982, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, designed by Maya Lin, was dedicated on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Ten years ago: Claiming Iraq was seeking the “path of peace,” Saddam Hussein’s government agreed to the return of international weapons inspectors. U.S. Roman Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved a compromise sex abuse policy after the Vatican demanded they make changes to balance fairness to priests with compassion for victims. Jewish Defense League leader Irv Rubin died nine days after what authorities said was a suicide attempt in a Los Angeles jail; he was 57.

Five years ago: CC Sabathia won the AL Cy Young Award to become the first Cleveland pitcher in 35 years to earn the honor.

One year ago: A day after Silvio Berlusconi reluctantly resigned as Italy’s premier, economist Mario Monti accepted the monumental task of trying to form a new government that could rescue Italy from financial ruin.
