    Born on this Day in History: February 22, 1975 - Actress Drew Barrymore, born in Los Angeles, captured audiences' hearts at age seven for her role in E. T.: The Extraterrestrial. Her troubled childhood soon led to substance abuse and a wild reputation, however, which negatively impacted her career for many years. In 1995, she founded Flower Films and has since regained success as a talented actress, model, and producer.

    On this Day in History: February 22, 1994 - CIA agent Aldrich Ames charged with conspiracy to commit espionage. His betrayal, starting in 1985, resulted in the executions of a good number of important undercover agents within the Soviet Union. The CIA knew without doubt there was a mole in its ranks. And though by 1989 Ames had acquired unexplainable wealth from his spying and did very little to conceal the spying, he somehow managed to evade being caught for five more years.
