It’s been a few days, but here are a few quick hits for the day that just was – January 6th:

On this day in 1838 Samuel Morse successfully demonstrated his telegraph.

On this day in 1994, Olympic-hopeful figure skater Nancy Kerrigan was clubbed on her right leg by the ex-husband of one of her competitors, Tonya Harding.

On this day in 2001, Presidential hopeful Vice President Al Gore presided over the certification in Congress that George W. Bush was the winner of the 2000 Presidential election.
