Cyrano de Bergerac was born. And Midsummer and Why watched the movie Cyrano de Bergerac last night. Weird.
Also: Davy Crockett died this day in history. That's kind of sad.
Awwh, so did Louisa May Alcott. This day just keeps getting sadder and sadder.
On the bright side, the great comedian, Lou Costello was born today and so was Will Eisner — whoever he is. His name makes me think of Walt Disney for some reason, but I didn't find any connection between the two in his Wikipedia entry except that his signiture looks like Disney's.
Today I also found out that "longitudinal" is a word while I was doing research on a paper that I'm not doing right now.
Mozart's wife died today too.
Ooh! Rob Reiner was born today too! Can anyone tell me who he is? (I almost put "Can any of you meatheads tell me who he is?", but I didn't think you'd get it, and I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
