As I mentioned earlier in this blog, I'm a copycat with no imagination. So, when my friend told me to play the Wikipedia Game, I did.
To play: Go to Wikipedia.org, and do a search for your birth date, without the year. Then, on your blog, list at least:
--3 neat facts
--and 1 death
that all happened on your birthday. A-like so:
1790 - In New York City, the Supreme Court of the United States convenes for the first time.
1920 - The Royal Canadian Mounted Police begin operations.
1978 - Director Roman Polanski skips bail and flees to France after pleading guilty to charges of engaging in sex with a 13-year-old girl.
1999 - North Dakota Public Radio is launched.
