Taser Incident On September 17, 2007, U.S. Senator John Kerry addressed a Constitution Day forum at the University of Florida in Gainesville, which was organized by the ACCENT Speakers Bureau, an agency of the university's student government. Initially allowed to ask questions after the close of the question period, Andrew Meyer, a 21-year-old fourth-year undergraduate mass communication student, entered into a planned line of questioning and was forcibly pulled away from the microphone. He immediately resisted the campus security and was subsequently arrested by university police. During arrest, the officers asked him repeatedly to stop resisting, but Meyer continued to struggle and scream for help. While six officers held Meyer down[1] one of the officers drive stunned him with a Taser following Meyer's shouted plea to the police, "Don't tase me, bro!" The video became a popular viral hit.

Actor with Gone With the Wind opening line dies Fred Crane (pictured on the left), the one-time actor whose Southern accent won him a slot as one of Scarlett O'Hara's beaux and the opening line in "Gone With the Wind," has died. Crane, who played one of the Tarleton twins in the 1939 classic, was 90. His wife, Terry Lynn Crane, told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he died on Thursday of complications from diabetes. She declined to give details. The couple lived in Barnesville south of Atlanta, where they owned a registered historic 1846 Confederate home and Civil War hospital which they operated as Tarleton Oaks, a bed and breakfast that they named for his character in the film, Brent Tarleton. The other Tarleton twin was played by George Reeves, who later gained TV immortality as Superman. Born in New Orleans, Crane stumbled into his role on "Gone With the Wind." He was not yet an actor when he accompanied a cousin who wanted to audition for the movie. The casting director liked the 20-year-old's Southern twang, and he wound up being cast.

Abdication of Edward VIII Speech In the tumultous years before WWII, England's stability was shaken by the resignation of its King Edward VIII. As Monarch and, therefore, head of the Church of England, his decision to marry a divorced American, Wallace Simpson, became constitutionally unacceptable, despite many political maneuvers. The last try was to form a Morganactic union, in which his wife would not be queen, but it proved unworkable. He found it impossible to discharge his duties as King, without his wife by his side. Despite what he says in his speech, his brother, George, was NOT prepared to take the throne. Unworldly, lacking confidence, and with a stutter, George became England's wartime King and performed his duties well. According to the late Queen Mother, his wife, his rise to the throne hastened his death.

First Female President - Edith Wilson There hasn't been a female president of the United States, you say? Technically that's correct. However, many historians consider the second Mrs. Woodrow Wilson to have been a de facto president. Woodrow Wilson was first elected president in 1912. His wife Ellen died of Bright's Disease in 1914. In March 1915, Wilson met a widow 15 years his junior, Edith Bolling Galt. A whirlwind romance occurred. The two were married in December 1915. In August 1919, while on a cross-country tour to garner support for his proposed League of Nations, president Wilson suffered a stroke. The seriousness of the president's affliction was not widely known. Throughout the remaining 19 months of Wilson's presidency, Edith greatly assisted her husband. According to her memoirs, she made numerous decisions regarding which tasks and paperwork would and would not occupy the president's time. Some historians claim she went beyond her wifely duties and actually made presidential decisions on her husband's behalf. Wilson died in 1924. After Edith's death in 1961, the stories of her excessive influence on the ailing president helped spur the passage of the 25th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which, under special circumstances, gives presidential powers to the vice-president when a president is alive but greatly incapacitated.

Was Chester Arthur a Canadian Questions surrounding the birthplace of an American president are not new. It first happened more than a century ago with Chester Alan Arthur. Elected as vice-president in 1880, Arthur ascended to the White House in 1881 after James Garfield was assassinated. Arthur served as president until 1885. His administration is generally underrated by historians. Arthur was the son of Irish-born preacher William Arthur and Vermont-born Malvina Stone. Most official references list him as having been born in Fairfield in Franklin County, Vermont on October 5, 1829, but Arthur sometimes claimed to have born in 1830. (That is the year inscribed on his crypt. It also appears in some reference works.) Arthur's father had initially migrated to Dunham, Québec, Canada, where he and his wife owned a farm about 80 miles north of the American border. There has long been speculation that the future president was actually born on that Canadian farm and that his family moved to Fairfield afterward. If this is true, Arthur would have been constitutionally ineligible to serve as vice-president or president. Given the lack of official documentation and the seeming confusion about the year of Arthur's birth, historians have been unable to rule this possibility out. Although some of Arthur's political opponents circulated the Canadian-birthplace rumor during the 1880 election campaign, they could not prove it. No ironclad proof has emerged since.

Richard Speck Murders 1966 On July 13, 1966, one of the most horrific crimes in American history occurred: Eight women aged between 21 and 23 were tortured and killed in a Chicago dormitory by Richard Speck. They were all student nurses who were a month away from graduation. The 24-year-old Speck (pictured here at his trial) was a lifelong felon whose lengthy criminal record included violent sexual assaults. On the night of the murders, Speck systematically killed his victims by strangulation or stabbing over a period of several hours. He also raped the eighth victim. Speck may have lost track of how many women were in the dorm room. A potential ninth victim, Cora Amurao, wriggled out of her bindings and hid under a bed while Speck's killing spree went on in another room. Amurao later identified Speck in court. Speck was found guilty and sentenced to die in the Illinois electric chair. The death sentence was later commuted on constitutional grounds. Instead Speck was given a 1,200-year sentence at Statesville Prison. For years Speck denied having any memories of the killings. However, in a 1978 interview he confessed to remembering everything. In a 1988 prison videotape, Speck was seen partying with fellow prisoners who were high on illegal drugs. The video recorded Speck mocking his victims. Portions of the video were broadcast nationally in 1996, increasing the support for capital punishment. By that time Speck was dead; he had died of a heart attack in prison on December 5, 1991, a day before his 50th birthday. No family member came forward to claim his body.
