The C.A. six tips of the day for Oct. 9
By Bonnie Adams, Government Editor
Region – Today is Tuesday, Oct. 9, the 283rd day of 2012.
On this day in 1635 the religious dissident Roger Williams, was banished from the Massachusetts Bay Colony by the General Court of Massachusetts. Williams then settled in what is now Providence, RI, establishing a community that was open to all, who like Williams, were seeking the removal of church from civil matters.
On this day in 1967, socialist revolutionary and guerrilla leader Che Guevara, age 39, was killed by the U.S. military-backed Bolivian army.
And on this day in 1986, the hit musical “The Phantom of the Opera” opened in London. The musical, written by Andrew Lloyd Webber, holds the distinction of being the longest running show on Broadway.
Born on this day, a man who could arguably be considered one of the most gifted and profound musicians of the 20th century, the late John Lennon (1940).
