2Day in History
Today is Monday, May 17, the 137th day of 2010. There are 228 days left in the year.

Today's Highlight in History:
On May 17, 1510, Early Renaissance painter Sandro Botticelli died in obscurity in Florence, Italy; he was probably in his mid 60s (More than three centuries would pass before the art world rediscovered Botticelli and his works).

Ten years ago:
Two former Ku Klux Klansmen were arrested on murder charges in the 1963 church bombing in Birmingham, Ala. that killed four black girls.

Five years ago: Los Angeles Councilman Antonio Villaraigosa trounced Mayor James Hahn to be elected the city's first Hispanic mayor in more than a century.

One year ago: President Barack Obama strode head-on into the stormy abortion debate, telling graduates at the University of Notre Dame that both sides had to stop demonizing one another.

AP Odd News
Vet says dog needs Viagra
HUNTINGTON, New York (AP) - A New York animal shelter is seeking donations of Viagra to treat a pit bull with a heart condition. Staff members at the Little Shelter Animal Rescue and Adoption Center in Huntington, on Long Island, say 6-year-old Ingrid needs two of the little blue pills every day or she will risk heart failure. They said a vet suggested it.

The pills cost about $10 apiece, and the shelter has been asking Viagra users to pitch in and donate their unused pills.

Viagra was originally developed as a heart medication but is now used mainly by human males to give their sex lives a boost.

One woman donated her husband's stash to the dog because she suspected he was having an affair.

N.J. college valedictorian proposes to boyfriend
HACKETTSTOWN, New Jersey (AP) - A New Jersey college valedictorian had a special graduation gift for her boyfriend - a wedding proposal, which he accepted.

Moments after finishing her speech Sunday at the Centenary College commencement, Emily Hawley called fellow graduate Josh Walker to the stage. She then popped the question, drawing loud roars from fellow graduates.

Hawley didn't have a ring to give Walker and didn't get down on one knee. She tells the Daily Record newspaper of Parsippany her proposal was "nontraditional enough."

Walker admits being caught off guard but says he didn't mind.
