Today’s highlight in history:

September 12, 2001Stunned rescuers continued to search for bodies in the World Trade Centers smoking rubble a day after a terrorist attack that shut down the financial capital, severely damaged the Pentagon and left thousands dead.

In 1966, The Monkees debuted on NBC-TV; Family Affair premiered on CBS.

In 1977, black South African student leader and anti-apartheid activist Steve Biko, 30, has died while in custody, sparking international outcry.

In 1987, reports surfaced that Democratic presidential candidate Joseph Biden had borrowed, without attribution, passages from a speech by UK Labor Party leader Neil Kinnock for one of his own campaign speeches. (The Kinnock report, along with other damaging revelations, prompted Biden to drop his White House offer.)

In 2009, Serena Williams’ US Open title defense ended in a bizarre loss to Kim Clijsters after Williams launched into a tirade against a linesman who called her for a foot foul; after his explosion, Williams was penalized one point for unsportsmanlike conduct, ending the game, 6-4, 7-5.

In 2012, the United States sent an elite group of Marines to Tripoli, Libya, after the mob attack in Benghazi that killed the American ambassador and three other Americans.

(Lochte and his swimming teammates have been criticized for being involved in an early morning drunken encounter at a gas station in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.)

One year ago: Two Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies sustained serious gunshot wounds as they sat in a police car outside a train station in a seemingly unprovoked ambush. (The suspect, Deonte Lee Murray, pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and other charges.) President Donald Trump defied local officials by holding a rally in Little Minden, Nevada, after his initial plan organizing one in Reno was stopped out of concern it would have violated coronavirus health guidelines. A car driven by South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg struck and killed a man along a highway; Ravnsborg later told authorities he had never seen the man and believed he had hit a deer. (Ravnsborg would not argue against a pair of traffic offenses; he was fined $ 500 each.)
