On This Day In History

In 1860, the first Pony Express rider reaches Sacramento, CA.
Abraham Lincoln was shot on this day in 1865 (he dies tomorrow).
1904, John Gielgud graced us with his presence.
In 1910 President William Howard Taft threw the first ever first baseball of the baseball game.
1925, Rod Steiger graced us with his presence.
Barbara Streisand and Katherine Hepburn tie for Best Actress in 1969. Both win, giving Hepburn the current record of three Academy Awards.
1977, Sarah Michelle Gellar graced us with her presence.

It is also Black Day in South Korea. A day for singles to get together eat noodles and black bean sauce (to0t!) and commiserate their singledom.

Barbara Steisand is very close to the top of my annoying people list.

Gilbert Gottfried. I know he does his act just to annoy the hell out of people, but if I ever see him in person and he does 'that' voice, he gonna get a boot to the head.

I like the black bean get together. The world needs more strange and interesting ways of getting people together.
