The carpet sweeper was patented. President Garfield, who was shot on July 2 in 1881, expired today and Chester A. Arthur became a president of sorts. 20,000 died in a Mexico City 7.8 earthquake in 1985. Orville Redenbacher popped his last kernel today. Also dead Condé Nast, Hermes Pan, Will Cuppy (suicide) and Gram Parsons.
