May 25th
On this day in…

585 BC: The first known prediction of a solar eclipse was made in Greece. When it didn’t happen, the date was moved to October 21.

1803: It was a dark and stormy night… when English novelist Edward George Bulwer-Lytton was born. The scalpel was mightier than the umbilical cord.

1895: Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde was sentenced to two years hard labor for being a sodomite. The bottomline is… it was that day’s top story.

1927: Robert Ludlum was bourne.

2001: American Erik Weihenmayer, 32, became the first blind climber to reach the summit of Mount Everest. The view from the top didn’t impress him.
