March 23 2007 Current Events Newsletter


Have you gone through that week’s worth of newspapers stacked by the couch yet? No? That’s OK, I’ve recapped a short list of current events for you here. This recap covers March 16 through March 22, 2007.

March 16: Catalino Lucas Diaz caused a security scare at the White House when he jumped the surrounding fence with a package while making threats. Diaz, 66, has a previous conviction for attempted murder in Florida and was released in 2001.

March 16: Three divers died while exploring an artificial reef in Key Largo, Fla. Jonathan Walsweer, Scott Stanley and Kevin Coughlin, all from New Jersey, were exploring a sunken Navy ship and became trapped. Another diver, Howard Spialter, also from New Jersey, survived.

March 17: A plane crash-landed in Russia, killing seven and injuring at least 20. The plane was flying from the Siberian city of Surgut to Samara on the Volga river. Officials have cited heavy fog as the cause for the accident.

March 17: Ontario-based Menu Foods announced a recall of millions of containers of dog and cat food sold at major retailers. Forty-six brands of dog food and 37 brands of cat food were affected by the recall.

March 17: An attack on an Islamic school in Thailand left three Muslim schoolchildren dead and seven injured. Insurgents hurled explosives onto the school grounds and opened fire with assault rifles.

March 19: North Carolina’s Davidson College announced that it will eliminate loans from its financial aid packages and replace them with grants and work study. The college hopes the move will help students graduate debt-free.

March 19: Three New York Police Department officers surrendered to face charges of firing approximately 50 shots at three men in a car outside of a nightclub. The shots fired by Michael Oliver, Gescard Isnora and Marc Cooper killed Sean Bell on Nov. 25 and severely injured two of his friends.

March 19: Actress and singer Vanessa Williams received the 2,331st star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Williams stepped down as the first black Miss America in 1984 after nude photos of her were published in Penthouse magazine.

March 21: The mystery creator of the politically-charged YouTube ad was identified as Philip de Vellis, a strategist with Blue State Digital. The ad (based loosely on a 1984 ad for Apple’s Macintosh computer) portrayed Hillary Clinton as a Big Brother figure and it urged support for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Vellis has resigned from his job over the ad.

March 22: A murder investigation has been launched into the March 18 death of Pakistan cricket coach Bob Woolmer. The 58-year-old coach died due to asphyxia as a result of manual strangulation, Jamaican officials said.

March 22: Presidential candidate John Edwards announced that he will continue to campaign, despite the fact that his wife’s cancer has returned. Elizabeth Edwards was diagnosed with cancer in 2004 during the final weeks of that year’s campaign.
