Milestones

Ten years ago: The Minnesota Twins won their first World Series championship, beating the St. Louis Cardinals 4-2 in game seven.

Five years ago: Independent presidential candidate Ross Perot, explaining why he had abandoned his White House bid in July, publicly accused the Republican Party of plotting to disrupt his business operations and his daughter’s wedding. (White House spokesman Marlin Fitzwater called the charges “loony” and “crazy.”)

One year ago: Federal Judge Richard Matsch granted Oklahoma City bombing defendants Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols separate trials rather than let one man drag the other down in the same trial.
