Headlines Du Jour ► Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Happy Birthday to the youngest and least known Marx Brother, if you don't count Gummo. Zeppo Marx was born Herbert Manfred in 1901. As straight man and romantic lead, he acted in the first 5 Marx Brothers' movies. Zeppo retired from Show Biz to become a theatrical agent and inventor and would have loved these Headlines Du Jour of yesteryear:
1836Samuel Colt is granted a United States patent for the Colt revolver.
1870Hiram Rhodes Revels, a Republican from Mississippi, is sworn into the United States Senate, becoming the first African American ever to sit in the U.S. Congress.
1928Charles Jenkins Laboratories of Washington, D.C. becomes the first holder of a television license from the Federal Radio Commission.
1932Adolf Hitler obtains German citizenship by naturalization, which allows him to run in the 1932 election for Reichspräsident.
1968Vietnam War: 135 unarmed citizens of Hà My village in South Vietnam's Quảng Nam Province are killed and buried en masse by South Korean troops in what would come to be known as the Hà My massacre.
1986People Power Revolution: President of the Philippines Ferdinand Marcos flees the nation after 20 years of rule; Corazon Aquino becomes the Philippines' first woman president.
