1. Poem for Beau
On July 28, 1981, Jimmy Stewart, while on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, showed off one his lesser known talents by reading a poem that he had written about his dog, entitled “Beau”. By the end of his reading, both Johnny Carson and Ed McMahon’s eyes were welling with tears:
- Thirty-one people are dead after two passenger trains derailed within minutes of each other on a flooded bridge in central India.
- Fox News has announced the 10 Republican candidates who will participate in the first debate of the 2016 U.S. presidential race on Thursday.
- Record-breaking freediver, Natalia Molchanova, is feared dead. She disappeared while diving off the coast of Spain on Sunday.
