According to a.net time, today is June 23, 2006.

From http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20060623/ap_on_to_in_hi/history_23 :

Today's Highlight in History:

Fifty years ago, on June 23, 1956, Gamal Abdel Nasser was elected president of Egypt.

On this date:

In 1836, Congress approved the Deposit Act, which contained a provision for turning over surplus federal revenue to the states.

In 1868, Christopher Latham Sholes received a patent for his "Type-Writer."

In 1892, the Democratic national convention in Chicago nominated former President Cleveland on the first ballot.

In 1931, aviators Wiley Post and Harold Gatty took off from New York on the first round-the-world flight in a single-engine plane.

In 1938, the Civil Aeronautics Authority was established.

In 1947, the Senate joined the House in overriding President Truman's veto of the Taft-Hartley Act.

In 1967, President Johnson and Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin held the first of two meetings in Glassboro, N.J.

In 1969, Warren E. Burger was sworn in as chief U.S. justice by the man he was succeeding, Earl Warren.

In 1972, President Nixon and White House chief of staff H.R. Haldeman discussed a plan to use the CIA to obstruct the FBI's Watergate investigation. (Revelation of the tape recording of this conversation led to Nixon's resignation in 1974.)

In 1985, all 329 people aboard an Air-India Boeing 747 were killed when the plane crashed into the Atlantic Ocean near Ireland, apparently because of a bomb.

Ten years ago: Congressional Democrats unveiled a "families first" legislative package aimed at winning middle class voters and retaking Capitol Hill. Former Greek Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou died at age 77.

Five years ago:
Pope John Paul II arrived in Ukraine, seeking to reconcile divisions between Catholics and the Orthodox Church. Peru's fugitive ex-spy chief Vladimiro Lenin Montesinos, wanted on human rights and corruption charges, was captured in Venezuela. A powerful offshore earthquake shook southern Peru, killing at least 100 people. Yvonne Dionne, one of three remaining Dionne quintuplets, died at age 67.

One year ago: The White House defended presidential adviser Karl Rove against Democratic demands he apologize or quit for saying "liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers" while conservatives "saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war." Former Ku Klux Klansman Edgar Ray Killen was sentenced to 60 years in prison for the 1964 Mississippi slayings of three civil rights workers. The San Antonio Spurs won a thrilling Game 7 over Detroit Pistons, 81-74, to claim the NBA championship. Veteran journalist Shana Alexander died in Hermosa Beach, Calif., at age 79.

Actually, that's not true anymore. Damn IT dept at work, they weren't too happy that I found a way around the firewall, so they blocked the whole internet at my workstation.  mad

Carmen, you get better and better!

Where's the cat in the plane's engine or something? U T A, wake up.

By the way, happy attention whore day.

One more stunt like this, and you'll be welcome to our fag hag club.

Dismissed.  Wink
