For Christmas I got a History Channel desktop calendar. I thought I'd try to post what happened that particular day in history according to the History Channel.

January 5, 1957: Eisenhower proposes new Middle East policy

As tensions in the Middle East increased, President Dwight D. Eisenhower called for a new U.S. policy in the region. Known as the “Eisenhower Doctrine,” the new policy established the Middle East as a new front in the Cold War. Believing that the situation in the Middle East was deteriorating rapidly due to the actions of Egyptian nationalist leader Gamal Nasser—who had ties to the Soviet Union—Eisenhower called for economic and military aid to U.S. allies in the region to meet the “increased danger of international communism.”

That's cool! I got the Urban Myth page a day calendar last year. This year my nephew got me a pin-up girl calendar which isn't NSFW, so I am calendarless right now.

January 7, 1946: A case of split personality in puzzling Chicago Murders

Police responded to an affluent Chicago neighborhood to investigate the kidnapping of six-year-old Suzanne Degnan on January 7, 1946. Police later found Suzanne’s dismembered body. Eventually police arrested a seventeen-year-old student named William Heirens during a burglary, and when questioned under truth serum, Heirens admitted to police that his partner, George Murman, killed Suzanne Degnan. However, George wasn’t a real person, but William’s alter ego. Heirens pleaded guilty to three counts of murder and was sentenced to life in prison. It’s possible that Heirens is the longest continuously held prisoner in the world.

January 8, 1324: Marco Polo Dies

Famed explorer Marco Polo died on this date in 1324. When he was seventeen, Marco left Venice, a city-state in Italy, and traveled throughout Asia with his father and uncle. While in China, Marco became the favorite of Kublai Khan, China’s ruler. Khan gave Marco a job as an envoy, allowing Marco to travel to other parts of the empire. He named each kingdom he visited and described the people who lived there and the wonders he saw. After returning home, the Genoese captured the famed traveler during Genoa’s war with Venice. While in prison, Marco Polo told his astonishing story of travel to a fellow prisoner, who wrote the stories down.

Many of the wonders Marco described were considered lies. After his release in 1299, Marco Polo returned to Venice, where many people thought of him as Europe’s greatest liar.
