July 3rd

987: Hugh Capet is crowned King of France, helping him to achieve his life-long dream of living like Charlie Sheen

1886: The New York Tribune becomes the first newspaper to use a linotype machine... but it still can't beat the New York Post where the reporters just go out in the street and shout headlines at people.
