Brooklyn Today for Sept. 4, 2012

Good morning. Today is the 248th day of the year. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle for Sept. 4, 1902, was headlined, “Montauk Attacked by Naval Enemy.” Lest modern-day readers fret, however, U.S. Naval forces were merely engaging in “war games.”

Well-known people who were born today include singer-dancer Mitzi Gaynor  (“South Pacific”), singer-actress Beyonce Knowles (“Dreamgirls”), former New York Met Mike Piazza, golfer Tom Watson and actor-comedian Damon Wayans (“In Living Color”).
