Happy Birthday, Harper Lee

The author of the book that almost everyone (except for Kindra) agrees on as a Great. She was born in 1926 and won the Pulitzer Prize in 1961 for “To Kill a Mockingbird.” It was her first and only novel.

She is 81 today.

Happy birthday also to Jay Leno, who is 57.

Jessica Alba turns 26. I used to think she was just another pretty face, but she seems pretty down to earth in interviews. Of course, Kindra disagrees. Shocker.

I liked her in “Sin City,” “Fantastic Four” (the movie was ~eh~, but she was okay), and “Idle Hands.” You’ll have to look up that last one. DYK?, she was also a lead in the TV series’ “The New Adventures of Flipper,” appeared on “Beverly Hills, 90210,” and did a commercial in 1994 for Nintendo? Crazy what you can learn on IMDB.

And no, I didn’t forget the “Dark Angel” TV series, but it wasn’t that impressive. I think Kindra’s seen more episodes of that than I have.

Oskar Schindler would’ve been 99 today. He saved almost 1100 Jews during the Holocaust. Read more about him at Wikipedia. He passed away on October 9, 1974.
