Don’t Pity This Guy… and Definitely Don’t Call Him a Fool

Mr. T, a.k.a. Lawrence Tero, turns 57 today.

It’s also important women’s history day: Clara Barton founded the Red Cross on this day in 1881, and Amelia Earhart became the first woman to fly solo non-stop over the Atlantic, landing in Culmore, Northern Ireland in 1932.

I missed yesterday’s interesting headlines:

It’s been fourteen years since the end of NBC’s hit show, Cheers… can you believe it? The final episode in the bar’s history aired on May 20, 1993.

Birthday wishes to singer Joe Cocker (63), entertainer Cher (61!), and actor Bronson Pinchot (48 – just in case you were wonder who he is, he played Balki on the show Perfect Strangers and was in Beverly Hills Cop and Beverly Hills Cop 3 as Serge).
