Nickelodeon Worldwide Day of Play Outside Unbelievable. Worldwide Day of Play is an annual event designed to encourage kids and parents to turn off the television and play, especially outdoors. I never had to be chased outside to play no matter what was on TV.

Lolita Controversy Vladimir Nabokov's novel Lolita deals with a middle-aged writer's sexual infatuation with a 12-year-old girl. Due to its shocking and risque subject matter, Nabokov was unable to find an American publisher for Lolita after finishing his manuscript in 1953. After four refusals, he finally resorted to Olympia Press in Paris in September 1955. (The photo below shows a copy of a first edition.) Although the first printing of 5,000 copies sold out quickly, there were no substantial reviews. However, at the end of 1955, Graham Greene, in an interview with the Times of London, called Lolita one of the best novels of 1955. This statement provoked a response from London's Sunday Express, whose editor called it 'the filthiest book I have ever read' and 'sheer unrestrained pornography.' British Customs officers were then instructed by a panicked Home Office to seize all copies entering the United Kingdom. In December 1956, the French followed suit and the Minister of the Interior banned Lolita. (The ban lasted for two years.) Its eventual British publication by Weidenfeld and Nicolson caused a scandal that contributed to the end of the political career of one of the publishers, Nigel Nicolson. In contrast, American officials were initially nervous, but the first American edition was issued without problems by G.P. Putnam's Sons in 1958, and was a bestseller--the first book since Gone with the Wind to sell 100,000 copies in the first three weeks of publication. Today Lolita is widely considered to be one of the finest novels of the 20th century. In 1998, it was named the fourth greatest English language novel of the 20th century by the Modern Library.

Home Run Baker John Franklin Baker was the Philadelphia Athletics' third baseman during their glory years of the early 1910s. Baker first led the American League in home runs in 1911 and earned the nickname 'Home Run' during the 1911 World Series versus the New York Giants. In that series he hit a go-ahead homer off Rube Marquard in game two, and a ninth-inning game-tying homer off Christy Mathewson in game three. His 1911 home run crown would be the first of four consecutive seasons leading the American League. His home run totals during the dead-ball era were modest: He hit 11 in 1911, 10 in 1912, 12 in 1913, and nine home runs in 1914. His career home run total is just 48--a clear indication that home runs were a rarity in the 'dead ball era.'

Brooklyn Dodgers Win 1955 World Series For 65 years the Brooklyn Dodgers lived in the shadow of their more successful neighbors, the New York Yankees. Fans of the Bums, a nickname lovingly bestowed on Brooklyn's ballplayers, suffered World Series losses to the Yanks in 1941, 1947, 1949, 1952, and 1953. 'Wait till next year!' became an annual lament for Dodgers fans. Finally, on October 4, 1955, the seemingly impossible happened: The Dodgers beat the Yankees 2-0 in the seventh game of the World Series. This is the cartoon that adorned the front page of the next day's New York Daily News. It was an extension of the jubilation that pervaded Brooklyn that autumn day. Former Daily News writer Pete Hamill described that day for Brooklyn fans as being 'a combination of the Liberation of Paris, V-J Day, and New Year's Eve as car horns blared, trolley cars ding-dinged their bells, church bells rang, pots were beaten outside fire escape windows, kids and grown-ups leaped with joy and exultation. Next Year! It was true. This was Next Year! The Dodgers beat the script. No: they wrote a new one.'

JFK - Ich Bin Ein Berliner On June 26, 1963, in the shadow of the Berlin Wall, John F. Kennedy delivered the most famous speech of his presidency. To show solidarity with the free citizens of West Berlin, JFK said the German phrase, 'Ich bin ein Berliner.' This sentence has three translations: 'I am a Berliner,' 'I am a citizen of Berlin,' or rather comically, 'I am a jelly doughnut.' An urban myth claims the Germans in the audience snickered at the comment because of the possible jelly doughnut translation. However, the truth is that most Germans were intelligent enough to realize which meaning was intended. An English equivalent would be if someone said, 'I am a New Yorker.' What would a reasonable person conclude? Does the speaker mean he is a resident of New York or a renowned magazine?
