Beware the Ides of March!

Thus begins today's installment of Today in History for March 15th from the Associated Press.

Highlights of Today in History: Julius Caesar assassinated in Rome; Johnson urges passage of Voting Rights Act; Worldcom CEO Bernard Ebbers convicted of fraud; Elizabeth Taylor marries Richard Burton; "My Fair Lady" debuts on Broadway. (March 15)
Looks like Bernard Ebbers should have been wary of the Ides of March, too.  This year, the most endangered item on the list is the Voting Rights Act.  Here's to hoping that Sections 4 and 5 of the VRA survive the current Supreme Court challenge.
