Jenny Jones Talk Show Guest Driven to Murder On March 6, 1995, Jenny Jones, the hostess of a TV talk show that bore her name, attempted to shock one her guests. The talk show had debuted in 1991 but had failed to deliver significant ratings until its subject matter became more sleazy starting in 1993. Jones' plan that day was to have a homosexual Michigan man named Scott Amedure admit to having a crush on his neighbor Jonathan Schmitz. Schmitz, a heterosexual, agreed to appear on the program because he had been led to believe that his secret admirer was a female. Unbeknownst to the show's staff, Schmitz had a history of mental illness, so Amedure's revelation weighed negatively on his mind. The media at the time gave a woefully incomplete account of what happened. It portrayed Schmitz as someone who became violent almost immediately. However this clip from the show--which never aired--shows that Schmitz accepted the news as gracefully as could be expected given the circumstances. Only after he received a sexually charged letter from Amedure after taping the show did Schmitz snap. He took some money from his savings account, purchased a shotgun, and fatally wounded Amedure in the latter's mobile home. Schmitz called police shortly thereafter to report what he had done. Schmitz was found guilty of second degree murder and sentenced to between 25 and 50 years in prison. A successful appeal resulted in a retrial--where Schmitz was again found guilty and the prison term was reinstated. Amedure's family won a $25 million lawsuit against The Jenny Jones Show. That decision was later overturned on appeal. The Jenny Jones Show ended in 2003.

Rene Higuita Scorpion Kick In the early 1990s Colombia's national soccer team featured a flamboyant goalkeeper named Rene Higuita. He was rightly nicknamed El Loco (The Madman) for his daring, foolhardy style of play. This short clip is a great example: During a friendly match versus England at Wembley Stadium in 1995, the 29-year-old Higuita displayed his 'scorpion kick' save to the world--and to a disbelieving British TV announcer.

Richie Cunningham - NFL Placekicker It can be an unfortunate or amusing coincidence when someone, quite by chance, has the same name of a celebrity or a fictitious character. Such was the case of of Richie Cunningham, an NFL placekicker who shared the name of Ron Howard's character from the TV sitcom Happy Days. The football-playing Cunningham was born in Houma, LA in 1970--four years before Happy Days hit the airwaves. He attended the University of Louisiana at Lafayette and did most of the kicking for the school's football team. Undrafted, he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys in 1994, but released. He was back with the Cowboys by 1997 where he enjoyed an outstanding rookie campaign. In 1998 he kicked 34 field goals to set a Dallas team record. On occasion, a snippet of the Happy Days theme would be played over the public-address system after Cunningham successfully booted a three-pointer. ESPN's Chris Berman, in doing the NFL highlight package, liked to say "Cunningham Potsied the ball through the uprights!" However, being an NFL kicker is a tenuous existence. Partway through the 1999 NFL season, Cowboys released Cunningham when his accuracy on field goals was just over 50 percent. By 2002 he was out of football altogether after stops in Carolina, Cincinnati, Jacksonville and Green Bay.

Exhumation of President Taylor - 1991 President Zachary Taylor became the second American chief executive to die in office when he succumbed to gastro-intestinal problems on July 9, 1850 at age 65. Known for generally having robust health, Taylor had been ill for five days with severe stomach cramps and diarrhea. The cause may have been Taylor's overindulging in cherries covered in iced milk following a Fourth of July ceremony on the site where the Washington Monument was going to be erected. Doctors tried to cure the president with blood-letting and laxatives, but to no avail. The cause of Taylor's death was officially listed as "cholera morbus"--which apparently was an all-purpose answer whenever someone died suddenly from digestive problems in the middle of the 19th century. There was no autopsy. The dead president's body was preserved in ice for five days but never embalmed. More than 140 years later a historian named Clara Rising claimed Taylor had actually been poisoned by arsenic, perhaps by political enemies. (Taylor, despite being a slaveholder, was an outspoken pro-Union man. He had threatened to use the army to quash any secessionist movements.) Rising's compelling arguments--plus her willingness to pay $1200 in fees--persuaded officials in Kentucky to exhume Taylor's body from his crypt and perform modern scientific tests on it. The exhumation was carried out on June 18, 1991 with about 200 curious onlookers watching silently from a respectful distance. Modern forensic examination of Taylor's fingernails, sideburns, and even pubic hair showed no signs of arsenic poison whatsoever. Taylor was re-interred alongside his wife at Zachary Taylor National Cemetery in Louisville, KY. Today the medical community believes that the purgatives that Taylor was given by his physician to cleanse his system may have contained mercury which may have hastened the president's demise.
