First, a new story kicks off today, Prophecies and Penalties. Meet data analyst Emily Fisher. She’s going home. Great? She doesn’t think so. She’s even less happy about the reason why. You can start with chapter one, “The Iron Lady.” And a new chapter will go up every Friday before noon, Boston time (GMT – 5).
Second, it’s the birthday of that cheerful fellow who predicted that we’d inevitably starve due to population growth, Robert Malthus (1766); the man with the wheel, George Washington Gale Ferris, Jr. (1859); union leader and landfill participant, Jimmy Hoffa (1913); sometime fake Amish woman Florence Henderson (1934), and your truly (19%*). Despite these legendary names, today is not an official holiday in Massachusetts, Tuvalu, or Svalbard, though in New Jersey the police celebrate the day by digging through yet another landfill without success.
Well Happy Birthday BB, may you live another &? years. 🙂
Happy Birthday Brian!! May your digging be through a decadent birthday cake!!
Well, will beer available only at the brewery and chocolate hazelnut cookies suffice?
Whatever you want will suffice!! Chocolate hazelnut sounds scrumptious!!
Guess what!! Seems you have a new future luminary to share your birthday with!! Simon Cowell’s little boy was born today!! You might need that beer now!!
