Old Time R and R"

Answer: On this day in 1983, the comedy film Risky Business, starring Tom Cruise in a breakout performance, opened in U.S. theaters. In the film, Cruise played Joel Goodsen, a suburban Chicago teen who has a series of misadventures when his parents go out of town and leave him home alone. Risky Business featured the now-famous scene in which Cruise’s character lip-syncs and dances around his house in a dress shirt and underwear to the accompaniment of Bob Seeger’s hit song “Old Time Rock and Roll.”

Which U.S. President imposed the first federal income tax?

Abraham Lincoln

Answer: On this day in 1861, Abraham Lincoln imposes the first federal income tax by signing the Revenue Act. Strapped for cash with which to pursue the Civil War, Lincoln and Congress agreed to impose a 3 percent tax on annual incomes over $800. According to the U.S. Treasury Department, the comparable minimum taxable income in 2003, after adjustments for inflation, would have been approximately $16,000. Congress repealed Lincoln’s tax law in 1871, but in 1909 passed the 16th Amendment, which set in place the federal income-tax system used today. Congress ratified the 16th Amendment in 1913.

 LADY  GODIVA

Answer: Godiva Chocolatier was founded in 1926 in Brussels, Belgium, by the Draps family who opened their first shop under its present name, in honor of the legend of Lady Godiva. Godiva founder and master chocolatier Joseph Draps sought a name for his company that embodied timeless values balanced with modern boldness. His inspiration came from the well-known Saxon legend of Lady Godiva who rode unclothed through the streets of Coventry to entreat her husband, Leofric the Dane, to lower taxes. Little did Joseph Draps realize that over time his chocolate would become as legendary as the lady herself.
