Thought for Today:

We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe.

Today's Highlight in History:

1843:The third victim of Jack the Ripper Elizabeth Stride was born on November 27. Stride's body was discovered close to 01:00 in the early morning of Sunday, September 30, 1888, lying on the ground in Dutfield's Yard, off Berner Street in Whitechapel. The yard was so dark that the steward of an adjoining club, who discovered her body on driving into the yard with a pony and cart, was hardly able to see it without lighting a match. With blood still gushing from her wound, it appeared that she was killed just moments before he arrived; the steward told officials that he believed that the killer was still in the yard. The notorious unidentified serial killer Jack the Ripper was believed to kill and mutilate prostitutes in the Whitechapel area of London during the late summer and autumn of 1888.

2005: The world's first partial face transplant on a living human was carried out on November 27. It was operated by a team of surgeons led by Professor Jean-Michel Dubernard and Professor Bernard Devauchelle in Amiens, France. Isabelle Dinoire underwent surgery to replace her original face that had been ravaged by her dog.A triangle of face tissue from a brain-dead human's nose and mouth was grafted onto the patient.
