1892:  Theologian Reinhold Niebuhr born in Missouri.  We see his seminary of three decades, Union Theological, on Columbia tours, Harlem tours, and Uptown tours, as well as four-hour MSO (Manhattan Step On or Manhattan sights orientation) coach bus tours.


1912:  Author Mary McCarthy born in Seattle.  She lived in NYC and died here in 1989.

1953:  Two days after Julius and Ethel Rosenberg's executions for passing atomic secrets to the Soviets,
10,000 people packed the Brooklyn funeral home where the Rosenbergs' services were held.


1964:  The Philadelphia Phillies'
Jim Bunning pitched a perfect game 6-0 over the New York Mets.  Five seasons later the Mets had gone from basement to champions.


1993:  Mets pitcher Anthony Young
tied the major leagues' 1911 consecutive-loss record of 1911 with his 23rd.  The following week he went on to break the record.


1997: The Women's National Basketball Association debuted.


2010:  Faisal Shahzad (aka Fizzle Shizzle), a Pakistan-born U.S. citizen and loser, pleaded guilty to plotting a (failed) car bombing in New York's Times Square.  Later he was sentenced to life in prison. 

He was probably supposed to be a suicide bomber, but locked himself out of his SUV and fled.  He later read a statement that he meant to be a marty,r, which I suppose he said so so that he would not be killed by j,ihadists in jail for chickening out.
