Notably: Happy Birthday, Katharine Graham (1917): you transformed the Washington Post into a newspaper just about as worthy as its namesake, for the nation’s sake–on the very anniversary day of Lincoln’s house divided speech no less (1858), a speech about a sesquicentennial and then some ahead of its time. Psycho premiered on this day in 1960. Boy George has nothing to do with this day other than I happen to be hearing him sing at World of Beer in Orlando–where we are exiled for two days–as I type this (his birthday was actually on June 14), and my beloved is smiling it up.
