Today in history


Today is Saturday, Sept. 22, the 266th day of 2012. There are 100 days left in the year. Autumn arrives at 10:49 a.m. Eastern time.

On this date in the SCV: In 2000, Stevenson Ranch Town Council President Keith Pritsker and Town Councilmember Gary Schamber were served Tuesday with a lawsuit in which Dave Bossert accuses them of defamation of character.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 22, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln issued the preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, declaring all slaves in rebel states should be free as of Jan. 1, 1863.

Ten years ago:  Thousands of Palestinians marched to protest Israel’s siege of Yasser Arafat’s headquarters, and Israeli soldiers opened fire on Palestinians who defied curfews. Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder’s Social Democrats won one of Germany’s closest postwar elections. The White House drama “The West Wing” won its third consecutive Emmy as best drama series; “Friends” was honored as best comedy for the first time in its eight years on the air.

Five years ago: Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice spoke briefly with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki at the United Nations, but they did not discuss a Baghdad shootout involving guards from a U.S. company protecting American diplomats that claimed civilian lives. Marcel Marceau, the master of mime, died in Paris at age 84.

One year ago: A group of European researchers at the world’s biggest physics lab in Switzerland claimed to have measured a subatomic particle, a neutrino, traveling faster than the speed of light, a finding that challenged Einstein’s theory of relativity (however, the results have since been refuted by other scientists). American diplomats led a walkout at the U.N. General Assembly as Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad fiercely attacked the United States and major West European nations as “arrogant powers” ruled by greed and eager for military adventurism. Pope Benedict XVI arrived in Germany on his first state visit to his homeland.
