November 28th

1095: On the last day of the Council of Clermont, Pope Urban II appoints Bishop Adhemar of Le Puy and Count Raymond IV of Toulouse to lead the First Crusade. Everyone else gets’ a year’s supply of Turtle Wax.

1975: As the World Turns and The Edge of Night, the final two American soap operas that had resisted going to pre-taped broadcasts, air their last live episodes… thus killing the hopes of millions of teenage boys who had been praying to see some accidental nudity.

1984: Over 250 years after their deaths, William Penn and his wife Hannah Callowhill Penn are made Honorary Citizens of the United States. They receive their 1040’s a week later.
