"Tomorrow Is a Special Day (?)"

2007
Mar
15

Wednesday is Pi Day, Thursday is the Ides of March, Saturday is St. Patrick’s Day. So what should we celebrate on Friday?

The birthdays of John Butler Yeats, Marlin (Wild Kingdom) Perkins, Henny Youngman, Josef Mengele, Pat Nixon, Leo (Rumpole) McKern, Jerry Lewis, Chuck (Love Connection) Woolery, Nancy (Heart) Wilson, Flavor Flav or Todd (Spawn) McFarlane?

The anniversaries of the first V-2 Rocket in WWII, the My Lai Massacre or the abductions (in different years) of Italy’s Aldo Moro, the CIA’s William Buckley and AP’s Terry Anderson (Anderson the only one who came back alive)?

Or St. Urho’s Day – for the legendary/fictional patron saint of Finnish immigrants to the US, who was claimed to have driven the grasshoppers out of Finland.

I’m leaning toward either St. Urho, Kidnapping Day or Old Comedians Day (for Henny Youngman & Jerry Lewis)…
