On January 29, 2002, in his first State of the Union address since the September 11 attacks, President George W. Bush describes Iraq, Iran and North Korea as an "axis of evil." White House speechwriter David Frum actually gets credit for the phrase. In the SOTU, Bush also outlined his plans for the "War on Terror", which was already underway; US troops invaded Afghanistan to depose the Taliban regime in October. On January 29, 1964, Stanley Kubrick’s black comic masterpiece, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb opens in theaters. Its the story of a rogue U.S. officer who orders atomic bomb strikes on the Soviet Union. Hot line exchanges between the President and Soviet premier ensue, with the Russian leader warning the attack will automatically unleash a "doomsday machine" that will obliterate all life on earth. The movie’s popularity was evidence of changing attitudes toward atomic weapons and the concept of nuclear deterrence, and in 1989, was one of the first films selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress. The scene of Slim Pickens riding the bomb as Major Kong is as iconic as any in film history. On January 29, 1936, Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Honus Wagner, Christy Matthewson and Walter Johnson are elected as the first class of the U.S. Baseball Hall of Fame.
