TODAY’S ‘FIVE’ HISTORY MOMENTS
Five years ago: All but 10 members of the Houston Texans took a knee during the national anthem, reacting to a remark from team owner Bob McNair to other NFL owners that "we can't have the inmates running the prison."
On Oct. 29, 1929, "Black Tuesday" descended upon the New York Stock Exchange. Prices collapsed amid panic selling and thousands of investors were wiped out as America's "Great Depression" began.
In 1987, following the confirmation defeat of Robert H. Bork to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court, President Ronald Reagan announced his choice of Douglas H. Ginsburg, a nomination that fell apart over revelations of Ginsburg's previous marijuana use.
In 1998, Sen. John Glenn, at age 77, roared back into space aboard the shuttle Discovery, retracing the trail he'd blazed for America's astronauts 36 years earlier.
In 2004, four days before Election Day in the U.S., Osama bin Laden, in a videotaped statement, directly admitted for the first time that he'd ordered the September 11 attacks and told Americans "the best way to avoid another Manhattan" was to stop threatening Muslims' security.
TODAY’S ‘FIVE’ ENTERTAINMENT MOMENTS
In 1983, Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" became the longest-running album on the Billboard music charts, with a total of 491 weeks. That record has since been broken.
In 1964, the "T.A.M.I. Show" was filmed in Santa Monica, California. It featured performances by the Beach Boys, Chuck Berry, James Brown, Lesley Gore, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, The Rolling Stones and The Supremes.
In 1970, Neil Diamond received a gold record for "Cracklin' Rosie."
In 1971, Allman Brothers guitarist Duane Allman was killed in a motorcycle crash in Macon, Georgia. A similar accident took the life of the band's bassist, Berry Oakley, the next year.
In 1981, the TV comedy "Gimme A Break," starring Nell Carter, made its debut on NBC.
