Today in history

Today is Thursday, Sept. 27, the 271st day of 2012. There are 95 days left in the year..

On this date in the SCV: In 1992, 41-year-old Noel Tumaliuan drowned while kayaking in Castaic Lake. After losing control of the boat, Tumaliuan failed to take control of the situation, his family watching from the shore as he eventually drowned to death.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 27, 1962, “Silent Spring,” Rachel Carson’s groundbreaking as well as controversial study on the effects of pesticides on the environment, was published in book form by Houghton Mifflin.

Ten years ago: President George W. Bush said the United Nations should have a chance to force Saddam Hussein to give up his weapons of mass destruction before the United States acted on its own against Iraq, but told a Republican fundraising event in Denver that action had to come quickly.

Five years ago: Soldiers fired into crowds of anti-government demonstrators in Yangon, Myanmar; Kenji Nagai, 50, a video journalist for Japan’s APF News, was shot and killed. President George W. Bush promised to take steps to reduce air traffic congestion and long delays that were leaving travelers grounded.

One years ago: Opening statements in the Los Angeles trial of Michael Jackson’s personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, took place as prosecutors accused Murray of killing the superstar through irresponsible use of the anesthetic propofol, and the defense maintaining Jackson had caused his own death. (Murray was later convicted of felony involuntary manslaughter.) Israel gave the go-ahead for construction of 1,100 new Jewish housing units in east Jerusalem; the announcement met with swift criticism from the United States and the European Union.
