For years, the only other October 25 birthday I knew about was Picasso…not terribly exciting. But today I checked out the Yahoo Birthday page, and found that I share my birthday with Nancy Cartwright (Bart Simpson‘s voice) and Ed Robertson (of Barenaked Ladies).
Though, according to the Yahoo birthday page, October 25 might not be the best day for happy history…
- In 1400 Geoffrey Chaucer died
- In 1918, the Canadian steamship Princess Sophia sunk, killing nearly 400 people
- In 2002 Senator Paul Wellstone (MN, my home-state) died in a plane crash
- In 1999 Golfer Payne Stewart and five others were killed in a plane crash
Let’s have some happy news!
