This Day in History:  1994 – Rwandan armed forces began a genocide in the country that would see nearly 1 million people massacred in the worst episode of ethnic genocide since World War II.

Quote of the Day:

Did You Know?   Hall of Fame baseball player Ted Williams is the last man to hit .400 in a season.  He is also one of the most decorated players of all time.  What is astonishing about Ted Williams is that he interrupted his career twice to fight in American wars.  He was a Navy pilot in World War II and a Marine pilot in the Korean War.  At age 39, after returning from the Korean War, Ted Williams hit .388, becoming the oldest player to win a batting title.
