October 5th is the 278th day in the Gregorian calendar. On this day the Ladbroke Grove train crash in west London killed 31 people; the U.S. Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) was founded, and a workers' strike in Hollywood turned into a bloody riot at the entrance of Warner Brothers Studios. Famous October 5th birthdays include actress Kate Winslet and the late comedian Bernie Mac. Today is World Teachers Day, National Be Nice Day, and World Teachers Day.
