July 3rd

1890: Idaho is admitted as the 43rd state… because America was getting tired of civilization.

1981: First mention in the New York Times of a disease that would later be called AIDS… it took a shocking 15 more minutes for the paper to blame President Reagan.

2006: Asteroid 2004 XP14 flies within 269,000 miles of Earth. The asteroid is pulled over by the cops, but is let go with a warning.
