Things you can do with Wikipedia: look up people who share your birthday! Today's mine - I'm 44; and I share the day (though not the year) with Milton Avery, Piet Mondriaan, Maurice Ravel, Tammy Faye Bakker, Daniel J. Travanti, Peter Wolf, Townes van Zandt, Bryan "Walter White" Cranston, Bret Easton Ellis, Rachel Weisz, John "Alex Cutter" Heard, and Peter Sarsgaard. Happy birthday, folks! Also on this day, the song "We Are the World" had its international release, and Stanley Kubrick, Paul Winfield, Divine, and Alice B. Toklas died. Finally, thems what are still into the Christianity trip celebrate the feast of St. Thomas Aquinas today. How 'bout that...!
Let's listen to a great Townes van Zandt song in his honour, shall we?
