I must confess that I had another one of those birthdays yesterday. Man o man, I really appreciate that old Yiddish saying: "Ve grow too soon old and too late schmart." When I first encountered this adage as a youth, it meant little.
October 23, when you get to looking for famous people birthdays and dates of famous event, comes up really short. I took some comfort in the fact that Johnny Carson and I shared the same birth date. Otherwise, it seems that history took a holiday on that date.
Then came THE discovery, one shared by a very exclusive and elite minority of humans.
OK, out there, eat my dust! Anything that happened on your birthday simply pales by comparison.
