Historical events: Hollywood came under scrutiny as the House Un-American Activities Committee opened hearings into alleged Communist influence within the motion picture industry (1947), Three members of 2 Live Crew were acquitted on obscenity charges in Hollywood (1990); The University of British Columbia announces a bad breath testing service, including both scientific analysis for halitosis and assessment by a human nose (1997).
Saint of the day: Saint Mary Bertilla Boscardin - the daughter of poor peasants in Vicenza, Italy - was nicknamed "the goose" for her complete lack of ability as a child. But she always volunteered for the hardest and heaviest work and her worth was eventually recognised. Sainthood's very own Ross Jenkins, then.
