FDR Memorial Controversy 1996 In 1996, when plans were announced to erect a memorial to the late Franklin Delano Roosevelt in Washington, D.C., an emotionally charged controversy erupted: Should America's only four-term president be shown in a wheelchair? FDR had been crippled by polio as a 39-year-old in 1921--and he went to great lengths to conceal his condition for the rest of his life. Because of the stigma attached to disabilities at the time, the accommodating media of the day kept FDR's secret from the public. Most photos and newsreels of FDR show him seated behind a desk or in an automobile; FDR was seldom photgraphed in a wheelchair or standing with the help of leg braces. Thus, a passionate dispute arose about how to memorialize FDR. Should he be shown as he truly was or as the public remembered him? This photograph shows the result: In his statue, FDR is draped in a cloak, which presumably hides the wheelchair. This compromise did not suit many advocates for the disabled. A smaller statue of FDR, clearly in a wheelchair, was erected near the main memorial in 2001.

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.

Our Gang - Mary Ann Jackson Mary Ann Jackson was the main female character in the Our Gang series during its transition period from silent movies to talkies. Jackson joined the troupe in 1928 at age six. She came from a family with plenty of acting experience. Jackson's mother was a stage actress while her older sister had roles in some D.W. Griffith films. Jackson herself had movie experience dating back to 1925. Our Gang Director Robert McGowan preferred casting children with no acting experience in order to project natural child-like behavior, but he made an exception in Jackson's case. Jackson was a tomboyish 'plain Jane' character who was vastly different from all the female Our Gang leads that came before and after her. She had the ability to both deliver a wisecrack and elicit pathos. Jackson's last Our Gang appearance came in 1931. She then abruptly quit the business at age eight, seldom acting again. Jackson died of a heart attack at age 80 in 2003.

George Foreman Regains Title at 45 George Foreman was an intimidating bruiser when he won the world heavyweight title by demolishing Joe Frazier in 1973. He surprisingly lost the crown to Muhammad Ali in Zaire in 1974. By 1977 Foreman was out of boxing and was making a living preaching in Texas. With funds getting a little low, Foreman made what many fans thought was a crazy comeback in 1987 at age 38. Much slower than he had been in his prime, Foreman could still hit with great power, though. Now a fan favorite because of his new likable persona, Foreman had a series of comeback wins. He lost a title try to Evander Holyfield in 1991 at age 42. Three years later he was given another shot against new champion Michael Moorer. Trailing badly on the scorecards entering the tenth round, the 45-year-old Foreman shocked the world with an historic knockout blow, as this clip shows. Listen to Jim Lampley's succinct call: "It happened! It happened!" Also listen to the excited, joyous cheering of the pro-Foreman crowd when Moorer hits the deck. It ranks as one of the magical moments in sports history.
