2Day in History

Today is Saturday, Nov. 13, the 317th day of 2010. There are 48 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 13, 1974, Karen Silkwood, a technician and union activist at the Kerr-McGee Cimarron plutonium plant near Crescent, Okla., died in a car crash while on her way to meet a reporter.

Ten years ago: Lawyers for George W. Bush failed to win a court order barring manual recounts of ballots in Florida. Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris announced she would end the recounting at 5 p.m. the next day — prompting an immediate appeal by lawyers for Al Gore.

Five years ago: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice strongly rebuked Iran’s leadership, saying “no civilized nation” can call for the annihilation of another — a reference to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s remark that Israel should be “wiped off the map.”
