  On this day in history

Trick or Treat, it's Halloween! Today, Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to the church door at Wittenberg starting the Protestant Reformation. Scottish inventor John Boyd Dunlop patented his pneumatic bicycle tyre (or tire if you're a Yank). Shaw's "Mrs. Warren's Profession" opened to 'vicious' and 'indecent' reviews in New York, but Rudolph Valentino's "The Sheik" was a sensation down the street. The Battle of Britain ended today in 1940 with the loss of 915 RAF planes and 1,733 Luftwaffe. The first pacemaker was implanted in Sweden. While walking in her Delhi garden, Indira Gandhi was shot dead by two of her own Sikh security guards. Also dead, Harry Houdini, Augustus John, John Houseman, Joe Papp, and Federico Fellini.
