The LuLac Edition #1772, September 24th, 2011



Since some of my readers were bitching and moaning about the Interview segment every week, our last Saturday in the month is just that, a last Saturday. There is no rhyme or reason to it, so take it or "x" out of it if you wish. Or enjoy.


622 Prophet Muhammad completes his hijra from Mecca to Medina.
1780 – Benedict Arnold flees to British Army lines when the arrest of British Major John André exposes Arnold's plot to surrender West Point.
1789 – The United States Congress passes the Judiciary Act which creates the office of the United States Attorney General and the federal judiciary system, and orders the composition of the Supreme Court of the United States.
1890 – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints officially renounces polygamy.
1906 – U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt proclaims Devils Tower in Wyoming as the nation's first National Monument.
1946 – Clark Clifford and George Elsey, military advisers to U.S. President Harry S. Truman, present him with a top-secret report on the Soviet Union that first recommends the containment policy.
1948 – The Honda Motor Company is founded.
1960 – USS Enterprise (CVN-65), the world's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, is launched.
1962 – United States court of appeals orders the University of Mississippi to admit James Meredith.
1968 – 60 Minutes debuts on CBS.


1900 – Ham Fisher, American cartoonist (d. 1955)
1941 – Linda McCartney, American singer and photographer (d. 1998)
1942 – Gerry Marsden, English singer (Gerry & The Pacemakers)


366 – Pope Liberius Pope Liberius, a Roman, became pope on April 17, 352, amid the Arian crisis of the 4th century.
Arians believed that Jesus was not identical in substance to the Father. Church doctrine ascribes to the homoousion formula which identifies the Divinity of Christ and states that Jesus is of the same substance as the Father, a dogma affirmed at the First Vatican Council at Nicaea in 325.
The Arian Emperor of the day, Constantius, claimed "My will is the canon." The emperor claimed to rule the Church.
Emperor Constantius knew he had no hope of uniting Christians by a semi-Arian formula if Pope Liberius continued to defend orthodoxy. Saint Athanasius, Patriarch of Alexandria (328–73), Doctor of the Church, champion of orthodoxy, professed the infallible doctrine taught by the Council of Nicaea.
Emperor Constantius, at a council held in Milan in 353, demanded that Saint Athanasius be condemned and warned the bishops to obey the emperor or face exile. Some bishops refused, and they were promptly banished.
Pope Liberius refused to sign the condemnation of Saint Athanasius, so Emperor Constantius tried, unsuccessfully, to bribe Pope Liberius. Emperior Constantius then exiled Pope Liberius and named the antipope, Felix II.
1143 – Pope Innocent II Pope Innocent II's election was marred by the fact that he was chosen by only a minority of cardinals - most had opted for Pietro Pierleoni, who took the name Anacletus II. Innocent, however, had friends more powerful than the attending cardinals. He fled to France where he enlisted the aid of King Lothair who, two years later, invaded Italy and reinstated Innocent on the papal throne. In return, Innocent crowned Lothair Holy Roman Emperor.
2008 – Mickey Vernon, American baseball player (b. 1918)

Please go back to 4 interviews a month. This "Last Saturday" thing is really scary. If this is your stream of conciousness, God bless Mrs. LuLac and every other woman you've encountered. There's a padded cell waiting for you, next to Robin Williams. He used drugs early in his career, what is your excuse?
