Mostly useless information: On this day in 516 BC the Second Temple of Jerusalem is completed. Donald Trump as yet has not taken credit for completing the job. “These violent delights have violent ends,” “thus with a kiss I die,” “For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo,” which debuted on this day in 1595 in London. Richard Lawrence attempts to shoot and kill President Andrew Jackson, who helps foil the assassination. And Adolf Hitler is sworn in as Chancellor of Germany in 1933. Also, today is the birth of Francois Bigot (1703), the French politician who was merely corrupt, not bigoted, Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882), Roy Eldridge (1911), see below, historian Barbara Tuchman (1912), who would have seen a hall of mirrors to the 14th century these days, Boris Spassky, the great Russian chess champion Bobby Fischer crushed in 1972. Not a single celebrity worth mentioning was born on this date.
