Dec 3 in History
I honor of Greg's joining the dark side and moving to HDS on Dec 3, 2012, I took a look at that day in history.
2011 USA - Herman Cain Announces Suspension of Presidential Campaign
1965 USA - Ku Klux Klansmen Convicted of Murder
1967 South Africa - First Heart Transplant
But I think this one is the most apropos:
1989 Malta - George Bush and Mikhail Gorbachev declare an end to the Cold War
