On that day…

Today I found out that Martin Gardner, who is something like sixth in line to take over if God resigns, has the same birthday as me.

I already knew about Carrie Fisher (1 year younger) and Dizzy Gillespie, but there’s also: Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Alfred Nobel, Sir Georg Solti, Malcolm Arnold, Whitey Ford, Ursula K. Le Guin, Manfred Mann, Judge Judy Sheindlin, and Benjamin Netanyahu.

Also Rhoda Cook, my great great grandmother, born 150 years to the day before I was.
