The Beatles hit No. 1 for the first time in America, tragedy strikes space shuttle Columbia, and Janet Jackson suffers a Super Bowl "wardrobe malfunction," all on this day.
2013: Ed Koch, the outspoken former New York City mayor who typically greeted constituents with a "How'm I doin'?," dies of congestive heart failure at age 88 in Manhattan, New York. After serving three terms as mayor and helping turn the city's finances around from 1978 to 1989, Koch practiced law, hosted a radio show, was a newspaper columnist and made countless appearances on TV series as himself. Koch's ebullient personality made him a particular notable and popular public figure nationwide.
