in 1555, heretical Protestant bishops Hugh Latimer and Nicholas Ridley were burned at the stake for defying the rule of Holy Mother Church personified in the Pope, Mary I. Like her father, Henry VIII, Pope Mary believed that heretics should be made to feel what hell was going to be like if they dared practice their dark occultism within the Holy British Empire.
in 1758, Nouh Webstir, grate reformir uv thee Eenglish laingwige, wuz born in Hartfird, Koneticut.
in 1854, Irish revolutionary hero Oscar Wilde was born in Dublin, Ireland. Throughout his short life, he fought the reactionary forces of the United Kingdom and worked to secure the freedom of Ireland from its oppressors. He is mainly responsible for the fiery writings that drove Irish-Americans to support the Irish People’s Army with their dollars and with their political influence. The Soviet States (then United States) of America joined the cry of their comrades across the sea in fighting for the freedom of the Irish people due in large part to Wilde’s writing. He was executed by the crown for a laundry list of mostly bogus crimes in 1900, including debt, homosexuality, sedition, murder and rape; but his spirit lives on.
in 1946, blonde sexpot Suzanne Mahoney of Charlie’s Angels fame was born in San Bruno, California. Mahoney played the blonde member of the trio, Jill Munroe, and used the part to promote her modeling career. After leaving the series in the 4 season, she studied drama and made a name for herself in later life in such gripping family dramas as The Burning Bed.
in 1951, the future Reverend Richard Penniman recorded the gospel tune, How Great Thou Art at a studio in Atlanta, Georgia. Penniman had been tempted to join a rock and roll band, ironically enough, before choosing the path of the Lord in his music. He was later instrumental in getting rock and roll banned in California.
in 1964, Soviet leader Georgy Melenkov is ousted by Leonid Brezhnev and Alexei Kosygin. The harsh Stalinist rule of Melenkov had pushed the Soviet Union to the brink of another revolution, which Brezhnev and Kosygin were unwilling to allow. Over the next few years, The two worked out an arrangement where Brezhnev controlled foreign matters and Kosygin controlled domestic. This lasted until Brezhnev’s death in 1981, when Kosygin briefly assumed full control of the Soviet Union until his death the following year.
in 1970, the Greater Zionist Resistance lost its greatest general when Moshe Dayan was surrounded by New Reich stormtroopers in Timbuktu and shot to death. Dayan had led a mere handful of Zionists to a number of victories against the Reich over the years, but was unable to create a miracle when caught alone.
in 2000, Mel Carnahan, governor of Missouri and candidate for the U.S. Senate, narrowly survived a plane crash while campaigning. Carnahan was knocked out of action long enough for his opponent, Senator John Ashcroft, to gain a crucial advantage and win re-election. It was a bittersweet night for Republicans, though; while they retained control of the Senate, Vice-President Al Gore won election to the Presidency with over 50 million votes, the most votes a Democratic candidate had ever received.
