SUNDAY, DECEMBER 30: 2012 ANNIVERSARIES

Profile America — Sunday, December 30th.  Before closing the book on this eventful year, it's worth noting some of the anniversaries of 2012.  Two-hundred years ago, tensions between the U.S. and Britain boiled over into the War of 1812, which basically ended in a stalemate.  One-hundred years ago, the National Biscuit Company introduced the long-running favorite, Oreos.  Fifty years ago, the U.S. faced down the Soviet Union as the Cuban Missile Crisis brought the world close to nuclear war.  A century ago, the average life expectancy was 56 years for a baby girl and 52 years for a boy.  Now, those figures are 81 years for girls and 76 for boys.  You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau, online at www.census.gov.
