TAKIN' IT BACK TUESDAY

Today is Tuesday, March 2, the 61st day of 2010. There are 304 days left in the year.

10 YEARS AGO TODAY : Former Chilean dictator General Augusto Pinochet (pee-noh-CHET') left Britain for his homeland, hours after he was ruled mentally unfit to stand trial on charges of human rights abuses. A federal jury in Washington convicted Maria Hsia (shah), a friend and political supporter of Vice President Al Gore, of arranging more than $100,000 in illegal donations during the 1996 presidential campaign. (Hsia was later sentenced to three months of home confinement.)

5 YEARS AGO TODAY: The number of U.S. military deaths in Iraq reached 1,500. The woman who'd accused NBA star Kobe Bryant of rape settled her lawsuit against him, ending the case.

1 YEAR AGO TODAY: President Barack Obama appointed Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius to be secretary of health and human services. Soldiers assassinated the president of Guinea-Bissau, Joao Bernardo "Nino" Vieira.
