Have a nice day!


What do the Great Fire of Rome, the publication of Mein Kampf, Ted Kennedy's plunge off a Chappaquiddick bridge, the McDonald's massacre, a tidal wave that killed 3,000 Papua New Guineans, and the Kobe Bryant rape charge have in common?

They all happened on July 18th, i.e., today.

If anyone needs me for the rest of the afternoon, I'll be huddled under the covers, waiting for the horsemen to show up.
