On This Day in History: March 3, 2008

Tony Romo announced that he is not engaged to Jessica Simpson.

Simon Cowell admitted to using Botox.

Hillary Clinton forced reporters of all genders to file their stories out of a men’s bathroom after weeks of complaining about media bias.

It was immediately interpreted as something of a metaphor for the Clinton campaign’s attitude to the press: With Sen. Hillary Clinton at Austin’s convention center for "a Texas-sized townhall," her media entourage was taken to its work space — in a men’s room of a separate community center.

The tables set up for reporters nearly abutted the urinals. That made for a more spirited rush than usual for the best working space, with female reporters quickly staking out chairs on the small room’s opposite side.

One was too late: That left the unlikely scene of Tina Brown — former editor of Vanity Fair and the New Yorker, friend and biographer of Princess Diana — gamely typing away close to a toilet.

She also bragged about how old she was.

"I think that I have a lifetime of experience that I will bring to the White House. Sen. John McCain has a lifetime of experience that he'd bring to the White House. And Sen. Obama has a speech he gave in 2002."

7th Heaven star Jessica Biel turned 26, Oscar-robbery victim George Miller turned 63, terrible Geico commercial star Thomas Barbusca turned 5, and legendary Olympian Jackie Joyner Kersee turned 46.
