Notably: The great and underrated American composer Louis Moreau Gottschalk was born on this day in 1829. He was a one-man USO during the Civil War. It is also Sonny Liston’s birthday (1932). Liston was the heavyweight champion when he lost to Muhammad Ali when Ali was still Cassius Clay. There would be a rematch that Liston would lose from an invisible knockout punch but, unlike Diego Maradona’s cheating and obscene “hand of god,” as the vulgar little man called it, a legitimate one. Today is Mother’s Day, celebrated since 1907, when it was more of a commemoration: Anna Jarvis started it back then when she requested a church service in memory of all mothers, marking the anniversary of her mother’s death. Dostoevsky ight have done the same had he thought of it as a schtick. He stuck to art. See the quote below.

At ten o’clock we went to bed; I turned away with my head under the quilt and took the blue handkerchief from under my pillow: I had for some reason fetched it from the box an hour before, and as soon as our beds were made I put it under the pillow. I put it to my face and suddenly began kissing it: “Mother, mother,” I whispered, and my whole chest contracted as though in a vice. I closed my eyes, and saw her face with the quivering lips when she crossed herself facing the church, and afterwards made the sign of the cross over me, and I said to her, “I’m ashamed, they are looking at us.” “Mother darling, mother, were you really with me once?. Mother darling, where are you now, my far-away visitor? Do you remember your poor boy, whom you came to see?…Show yourself to me just this once, come to me if only in a dream, just that I may tell you how I love you, may hug you and kiss your blue eyes, and tell you that I’m not ashamed of you now, and tell you that I loved you even then, and that my heart was aching then, though I simply sat like a lackey. You will never know, mother, how I loved you then! Mother, where are you now? Do you hear me? Mother, mother, do you remember the dove in the country?…”
–From Dostoevsky’s A Raw Youth, or The Adolescent (1875).
