50 years ago, 1964: The Beatles, Britain's rock 'n' rollers with the haystack hairdos, blew up a teen-age storm upon their arrival at Kennedy International Airport. About 3,000 shrieking, hooky-playing fans strained against police barricades to welcome the singing quartet.
25 years ago, 1989: Congress refused to give itself a 51 percent pay raise under threat of voter retaliation, but members held out hope President Bush would suggest a less generous but more politically acceptable salary increase.
