Jesse Jackson Paternity Scandal 2001 There's nothing more satisfying than seeing a prominent man of the cloth get caught with his pants down. In 2001, the Reverend Jesse Jackson was the latest in a long line of notable preachers to be caught doing some unholy business with thy rod and thy staff. Jackson, a father of five who had been married since 1962, admitted to fathering a daughter with Karin Stanford in 1999. He was 58 years old at the time. Stanford was the head of Jackson's Rainbow/PUSH office in Washington, D.C. The Rainbow/PUSH Coalition had paid several thousand dollars in hush money disguised as 'moving and contracting expenses' to Stanford. When the story broke, another $40,000 in hush money intended for Stanford was stopped. The scandal drove the omnipresent Jackson out of the public eye for several months, but, as this doctored photo shows, it didn't stop people from cackling.

Johnny Mostil Suicide Attempt 1927 The 1927 Chicago White Sox were baseball's version of a soap opera. During spring training in Shreveport, LA, popular center fielder Johnny Mostil attempted suicide with a razor. He was discovered in a booster's hotel room lying in a pool of his own blood. Several teammates administered first aid, got him medical treatment and saved his life. (Two Shreveport doctors later sued Mostil and the White Sox for non-payment of $6,000 in medical bills.) What prompted Mostil's out-of-the-blue suicide attempt? The official team statement said Mostil was feeling the negative effects of a painful bout of neuritis. However, the whispers were much more interesting. Mostil was rumored to be having an affair with Irene Faber, the wife of White Sox pitcher Red Faber. Shortly after the suicide attempt, Mostil's girlfriend, Margaret Caroll, began dating Bill Barrett, another White Sox player. The two eventually married. Mostil did not play until September. By 1929 his career was over. He died in 1970.

Barney Miller Actor Steve Landesberg dies Steve Landesberg may have been best known for his role as the intellectual and sometimes annoying Detective Sgt. Arthur Dietrich on the long-running 1970s cop comedy "Barney Miller." But younger audiences knew him too — for a slew of recent parts such as the doctor on the 2008 hit movie "Forgetting Sarah Marshall." The veteran actor died Monday at age 65, his agent, Jeffrey Leavitt, told The Associated Press apparently from cancer.

Harmon Killebrew passes at age 74 Harmon Killebrew, the big-swinging Hall of Famer whose tape-measure home runs made him the cornerstone of the Minnesota Twins, died Tuesday at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz., after battling esophageal cancer. He was 74. The Twins said Killebrew passed away peacefully with his wife, Nita, and their family at his side. He announced his diagnosis just six months ago and last week Killebrew said doctors had deemed the "awful disease" incurable. Killebrew is 11th on baseball's all-time home run list after a 22-year career. His eight seasons with 40 or more homers still is tied for second in league history to Babe Ruth, and his upper-cut swing formed the silhouette that inspired Major League Baseball's official logo.

Bill Cosby Rails Against Bad English In 2004 entertainer Bill Cosby found himself in hot water for speaking his mind. During an NAACP celebration marking the 50th anniversary of the Brown v. Board of Education school-desegregation decision by the U.S. Supreme Court, Cosby upbraided poor black parents for buying their children expensive sneakers but not teaching them proper English. "These people marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an education--and now we've got these knuckleheads walking around," Cosby said at the event. "I can't even talk the way these people talk: 'Why you ain't,' 'Where you is' ... and I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk," Cosby continued. "And then I heard the father talk. ... Everybody knows it's important to speak [proper] English except these knuckleheads. You can't be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth." After his comments sparked a nationwide debate, Cosby was surprised at some of the negative reactions. He said in a statement that he meant for his remarks to be a call to action to improve the overall English skills of black students.

The Fugitive Finale - 1967 The Fugitive was a highly successful adventure/drama series that aired from on ABC from 1963 to 1967 and starred David Janssen. Here was the premise: A doctor, Richard Kimble, is falsely convicted of his wife's murder and sentenced to death, but then he escapes custody in a train wreck while being transported to prison. With this unexpected turn of events, Kimble roams the country as a wanted man, searching for his wife's true killer. The series concluded with two-part finale that aired on August 22 and 29, 1967. At the time, the second part was the the most watched episode of an American TV drama in history. (It was later surpassed by Dallas' "Who Shot J.R.?" episode in 1980.) In the eagerly awaited climax, Kimble eventually tracks down his wife's murderer (the infamous "one-armed man") but is then caught by the police detective, Lieutenant Gerrard, who has been chasing Kimble throughout the entire series. Kimble convinces the police to let him prove his innocence, which he does via the killer's last-minute confession during a shootout at an abandoned amusement park. Some 25.7 million American households watched Dr. Kimble go free.

Spittoons They'd be considered very unhygienic today, but in their day spittoons were actually a step up in public health. Used as a receptacle for spit generated by chewing tobacco, in the late 19th century spittoons became a common sight in pubs, brothels, saloons, hotels, stores, banks, railway carriages, and other places where people--especially adult men--gathered. Although brass was the most common material for spitoons, other materials ranged from basic functional iron to crafted cut glass and fine porcelain. At higher-class hotels, spittoons were often elaborately decorated. Spittoons were flat-bottomed, often weighted to minimize tipping over, and commonly had an interior lip to make spilling less likely even if they did tip over. Occasionally they'd have lids. Some had holes with an accompanying plug, to aid in draining and cleaning. Use of spittoons was considered an advance of public manners and health, intended to replace previously common habit of spitting on floors, streets, and sidewalks. Many jurisdictions passed laws against spitting in public--other than into a spittoon. Boy Scout troops organized campaigns to paint "Do not Spit on the Sidewalk" notices on city sidewalks. In 1909, Cincinnati scout troops allied with members of the Anti-Tuberculosis League painted thousands of such messages in a single night. A punny mass-produced sign common in saloons read: 'If you expect to rate as a gentleman, do not expectorate on the floor.' Spittoons were also useful for people suffering from tuberculosis who would cough up phlegm. Public spittoons would sometimes contain a solution of an antiseptic such as carbolic acid with the aim of limiting transmission of disease. With the start of the 20th century, medical doctors urged tuberculosis sufferers to use personal pocket spittoons instead of public ones; these were jars with tight lids which people could carry. After the deadly 1918 flu epidemic, both hygiene and etiquette advocates began to disparage public use of the spittoon, and use began to decline. Chewing gum replaced tobacco as the favorite chew of the younger generation. Cigarettes were considered more hygienic than spit-inducing chewing tobacco. While it was still not unusual to see spittoons in some public places as late as the 1930s, vast numbers of old brass spittoons met their ends when they were melted down during the scrap metal drives of the Second World War.

What Would You Do and Double Dare 90s host  Marc Summers says half his face was wiped out in a car accident. Week of August 5, 2012 in Philadelphia, Marc Summers: Car Accident 'Wiped Out' Half My Face Marc Summers is grateful to be alive after sustaining serious facial injuries during a car accident last week. The 60-year-old star, who currently hosts The Food Network's "Unwrapped," was a passenger in a taxi cab in Philadelphia when the vehicle hydroplaned during a "torrential downpour," Summers told People. PLAY IT NOW: Billy Bush Reveals Details Of His Bicycling Accident & Complicated Recovery "I knew when [the driver] lost control that I was in trouble. I was on the phone with my supervising producer and I said, 'Oh my God, we're going to crash!'" he told the mag, recalling the harrowing moments right before the wreck. "Next thing I knew, I woke up and had blood all over me." Summers' head slammed against the plastic partition between the cab's front and backseats upon impact, badly damaging his face. VIEW THE PHOTOS: We Like What They’re Cooking: Stars Of The Food Network! "Everything on the left side from my eye socket down was just wiped out," he told the mag. "My eye socket got all swollen. I'm having trouble seeing completely out of the left eye... There's lots of titanium and screws in my face." Adding, "I was pretty lucky that I didn't have brain damage." Summers, a longtime TV producer and former host of Nickelodeon's "Double Dare," underwent a four-hour operation at the hand of a plastic surgeon following the accident. VIEW THE PHOTOS: Celebrity Chefs & Foodies While the star is still in tremendous pain, he said his doctor is confident the lengthy operation was successful. "Everything went back into place," he told the mag. "In a few weeks, the swelling will go down and no one will ever know ... I'll be a new guy." VIEW THE PHOTOS: Slime Time! 2012 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards Though he faces an arduous recuperation and is still having difficulty chewing solid foods, Summers is already on a mission to prevent this type of accident from happening to anyone else. "Appreciate all the good wishes from everyone. Pain a little less each day. Will you help me in a campaign to rid cabs of plastic partitions?" he Tweeted on Saturday, later adding that the blockades "serve no purpose other than hurting people" and are "way [too] close to backseat despite seat belts." -- Erin O'Sullivan Copyright 2012 by NBC Universal, Inc.
