Tomorrow is MOTHER'S DAY.

Amongst the events that have occurred around the world this past week are:
*Terrorist leader Osama Bin Laden was shot and killed while resisting arrest when American military forces raided his (apparently unknown to that country) Pakistan compound.

*Civil unrest, riots, and rebellion continues in the Middle East, including Syria and Libya.

*This year marks the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, home to the Boston (Massachusetts) Red Sox of Major League Baseball, the 60th anniversary of the Topps Card company producing baseball cards, and the 50th anniversary of the California Angels as a Major League Baseball team.
*The 137th running of the Kentucky Derby horse race was won by Magic Kingdom. (updated item)
