Highly Recommended

I watched the movie "Lions for Lambs" tonight. One of the best films I've seen in a very long time. Never mind that Tom Cruise is in it, put aside any preconceived notions about a Robert Redford film if you are of a conservative bent. Quite separate from the politics (which I admittedly agree with, but are secondary IMHO to the underlying message) -- it should be required viewing for every college student...and professor. Take the time to watch it, pretty powerful stuff.
1536 -- Anna Boleyn accused of adultery/incest
1567 -- Mary (of Guise), Queen of Scots marries James Hepburn
1886 -- Emily Dickinson US poet, dies at 55
1960 -- Sputnik 4 launched
1972 -- Governor George Wallace was shot and paralyzed while running for president
