Google Logos - This Day in History

I've always enjoyed Google logos for commemorating important dates. Today they're commemorating Diego Velazquez's birthday with a cute takeoff on Velazquez's famous painting, Las Meninas.

While I wouldn't want to detract anything form Velazquez, but, of all the events in world history that have occurred on June 6th, isn't there one that perhaps stands out?

Meanwhile, check out very humorous, albeit sadly accurate, production of how today's media would have covered D-Day from Combat Report.
