Ten years ago: Comedian, television host, author and composer Steve Allen died in Encino at age 78.

Five years ago: The body of Rosa Parks arrived at the U.S. Capitol, where the civil rights pioneer became the first woman to lie in honor in the Rotunda; President George W. Bush and congressional leaders paused to lay wreaths by her casket.
