On this day in history: October 30, 1938 - CBS radio announces that glistening, black-eyed Martians have landed at Grover's Mill, New Jersey. Luckily for the extraterrestrials, the news is announced during a Mercury Theatre program and later discounted as a work of fiction. Needless to say, the event causes widespread panic before the government manages to clamp a lid on it.

Born on this day in history: October 30, 1896 - Ruth Gordon (1896 - 1985) actress. She wrote, with her husband, "Adam's Rib," 1952; won Oscar for "Rosemary's Baby," 1968.

We watched The Island. [Michael Bay's stylish sci-fi thriller stars Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson as members of a strictly regulated indoor futuristic colony who hope to win the lottery, a contest in which the grand prize is a trip to an Utopian island, reportedly the last uncontaminated place on Earth. But a startling discovery about the true nature of "the Island"—and their very existence—leads the two to stage a desperate escape to the outside world.] This movie is exciting, the acting is excellent, the photography and special effects are stellar, and the story is a brilliant condemnation of human cloning. I highly recommend this movie.
