- which is why I didn't notice that the year listed by Boris Yeltsin's name was 2007. I noted his name was at the end of the list and presumed 2006, thinking it was something I'd forgotten or somehow missed the news in the first place. It wasn't until C. came home and I told him about all the things which happened on this day in the past that we figured it out. He was surprised that Yeltsin had died last year - that was news to him. And then we looked at the BBC News page - and Yeltsin's death was the headline.
As soon as news happens, it becomes history.
