Brooklyn Daily Eagle
Good morning. Today is the 256th day of the year. The Brooklyn Daily Eagle of Sept. 13, 1901, carried a report on the condition of President William McKinley, who had been shot by anarchist Leon Czogolsz. The Eagle said there was an improvement in his condition, that he was conscious, and he was responding well to a saline injection. As we know, however, McKinley eventually died of his injuries, and New Yorker Theodore Roosevelt became president.
Well-known people who were born today include singer Fiona Apple, actress Jacqueline Bisset, singer Peter Cetera (former lead singer of Chicago), fashion designer Stella McCartney, television producer Fred Silverman and former baseball player Bernie Williams.
