2day in history

Today is Saturday, Sept. 11, the 254th day of 2010. There are 111 days left in the year. This is Patriot Day.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 people were killed on America’s worst day of terrorism. Hijackers seized four jetliners, two of which smashed into New York’s World Trade Center, causing the twin towers to fall; one jetliner plowed into the Pentagon; and the fourth was crashed into a field in western Pennsylvania.

Ten years ago: A report released by the Federal Trade Commission said the movie, video game and music industries aggressively marketed to underage youths violent products that carried adult ratings, a finding rejected by entertainment producers.

Five years ago: Anti-abortion activist James Pouillon was shot to death near a high school in Owosso, Mich.
