Reaching out and touching someone since 1996

It's my birthday, too, yeah!

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

I don't usually like to toot my own horn when it comes to things like my birthday, but I figured what the hell. So for no other reason than I can, here are people with whom I share this day.

  • John Hancock
  • The Amazing Kreskin
  • Joe Frazier
  • Rush Limbaugh
  • Kirstie Alley
  • Walter Mosley
  • Melanie Chisholm (Mel C)
  • Ricky Van Shelton
  • Howard Stern
  • John Lasseter
  • Christiane Amanpour
  • Oliver Platt
  • Dominique Wilkins
  • Heather Mills
  • Rob Zombie
  • Jeff Bezos
  • Glenn Yarborough

In addition, I was born on Super Bowl Sunday (IX to be exact). The Steelers beat the Vikings 16-6. Unfortunately, it was also a year ago today the devastating earthquake hit Haiti, killings hundreds of thousands of people. In 1991, the U.S. Congress authorized the use of military force to drive Iraq out of Kuwait, thus launching the first Gulf War. In 1932, Hattie W. Caraway became the first woman elected to the United States Senate. I'm sure more stuff has happened, but I doubt you've read this far anyway.
