There were some birthdays today, but nobody extremely interesting… Oh, okay, fine… playmate Kelly Monaco is 31, singer-songwriter Jewel (Kilcher) is 33 (what?! She’s older than me? Weird.), actor Drew Carey is 46, world chess champion Anatoli Karpov is 56, and actress Joan Collins is 74. There! Are you happy now?
And the only other thing interesting historically is that seventy-three years ago today, police killed the notorious couple of Bonnie and Clyde. I should mention however, that the people over at the History Channel think that President George W. Bush recovering from a bicycle accident on this day in 2004 is noteworthy.
