Today in history

On this date in the SCV: In 1988, suspicion that a Valencia home was the location of a dial-a-porn operation subsided once it was revealed that it was merely the home of the company’s bookkeeper. The number of the company was similar to a dial-a-Santa hotline, causing controversy and resulting in a lawsuit, that was ultimately dropped.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Jan. 15, 1943, work was completed on the Pentagon, headquarters of the U.S. Department of War (now Defense).

Mickey Mouse and The Walt Disney Co. scored a big victory as the Supreme Court upheld longer copyright protections for cartoon characters, songs, books and other creations worth billions of dollars.

Five years ago: Mitt Romney scored his first major primary victory in his native Michigan. During a visit to Saudi Arabia, President George W. Bush warned that surging oil prices threatened the U.S. economy and he urged OPEC nations to boost their output.

One year ago: Addressing a conference in Beirut on democracy in the Arab world, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon demanded that Syria’s president, Bashar Assad, stop killing his own people, and said the “old order” of one-man rule and family dynasties was over in the Middle East.
