On this date in history:

In 1811, the first steam-powered ferry in the world started 
its run between New York City and Hoboken, N.J.

In 1868, Thomas Alva Edison filed papers for his first 
invention: an electrical vote recorder to rapidly tabulate 
floor votes in Congress. Members of Congress rejected it.

In 1950, the Federal Communications Commission issued to CBS 
the first license to broadcast color television.

In 1962, Pope John XXIII opened the Second Vatican Ecumenical 
Council in St. Peter's Basilica in Rome.

In 1984, financier Marc Rich agreed to pay the U.S. govern-
ment nearly $200 million, biggest tax fraud penalty in U.S. 
history.

In 1991, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution
barring Iraq from pursuing any atomic programs.

In 1993, armed demonstrators in Port-au-Prince, Haiti,
prevented U.S and Canadian troops from landing.

In 1994, the Pentagon reported that Iraqi troops were with-
drawing from the Iraq-Kuwait border. Their deployment had
brought the U.S. Navy and Marines to the Persian Gulf less 
than a week earlier.

Also in 1994, the Colorado Supreme Court struck down a law 
that barred local governments from enacting laws protecting 
homosexuals from discrimination in employment and housing.

In 1996, the Nobel Peace Prize went to Jose Ramos-Harta and 
Carlos Ximenes Belo, who worked for freedom for Timor Leste, 
where famine and repression had killed one-third of the 
entire population.

In 2002, Congress gave U.S. President George W. Bush its 
backing for using military force against Iraq.

In 2003, officials in India arrested more than 1,500 Hindu 
activists in an effort to ward off violence during a protest 
planned later this week.

In 2004, Christopher Reeve, who played Superman in the 
movies and strenuously pushed spinal cord research after he 
was paralyzed in an accident, died at the age of 52.

Also in 2004, six men were charged in the bombing of a 
Philippines ferry in which more than 100 people died.

In 2005, desperate Pakistani earthquake survivors ambushed 
army trucks carrying relief supplies as the reported death 
toll in Pakistan and India topped 42,000. An Islamic Relief 
spokesman predicted the number eventually would reach 80,000.

Also in 2005, nine insurgent attacks killed at least 55 
people in Iraq, including one suicide bomber who drove into 
a crowded market in Talafar.
