Good morning. Today is the 318th day of the year. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle of Nov. 14, 1902, reported on a police bust of an illegal betting operation within the Columbia Billiard Parlor in Bedford. A well-known church deacon was just about to put a $5 bet on a horse when the cops came in. The article ends by saying that according to rumors, the betting operation merely moved to another poolroom on DeKalb Avenue near Nostrand Avenue.

Well-known people who were born today include former U.N. Secretary Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Prince Charles of England, former U.S. Secretary of State Condaleezza Rice, baseball player Curt Schilling, New Age composer Yanni and rapper Joseph “Run” Simmons.
