50 years ago, 1964: Gov. James Rhodes called upon Erie County to attract vacationers to the area. He thought there was space to build 5,000 boat docks - which would draw boat manufacturers here "because they would be close to the source."

25 years ago, 1989: His hopes for freedom crushed, James Earl Ray turned 61 at the Brushy Mountain State Prison on the 20th anniversary of the day he pleaded guilty to killing Martin Lither King Jr. Ray, serving 99 years for murdering King in 1968, was blocked from early parole by Tennessee Gov. Ned McWherter.

10 years ago, 2004: Americans were sitting around eating themselves to death, with obesity closing in on tobacco as the nation's No. 1 underlying preventable killer. Poor diet and physical inactivity caused 400,000 deaths in 2000, a 33 percent jump over 1990.

Now that is really funny, especially when you consider that BabyMomma claims to be a guy! I didn't know he was gay, but I guess I should have expected it from a guy that chose BabyMomma as a username.
