This Day in History

From HistoryChannel.com:
1901 MARCONI SENDS FIRST ATLANTIC WIRELESS TRANSMISSION:

Italian physicist and radio pioneer Guglielmo Marconi succeeds in sending the first radio transmission across the Atlantic Ocean, disproving detractors who told him that the curvature of the earth would limit transmission to 200 miles or less. The message--simply the Morse-code signal for the letter "s"--traveled more than 2,000 miles from Poldhu in Cornwall, England, to Newfoundland, Canada.
Al Gore? No, it was really Marconi who invented the internet. He just don't get the credit.
1917 Father Flanagan establishes Boys Town

In Omaha, Nebraska, Father Edward J. Flanagan, a 31-year-old Irish priest, opens the doors to a home for troubled and neglected children, and six boys enter to seek a better life.
Can't help but think he had an alterior motive....
