History Lesson

DayBird - March 11th

537 - Goths lay siege to Rome. Quickly gave up, wrote a poem instead:

It is Boredom! an eye brimming with an involuntary tear,
he dreams of the gallows while smoking his water-pipe.
You know him, reader, this fragile monster,
hypocrite reader,my twin,my brother!

1302 - Romeo and Juliet's wedding day, according to Shakespeare. I can neither confirm nor deny.

1810 - Emperor Napoleon married by proxy to Archduchess Marie Louise.

1818 Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus is published. It has a creature in it.

1847 Johnny Appleseed, American pioneer agronomist (b. 1774)

1936 - Antonin Scalia, American Supreme Court Justice. Reagan appointed. I don’t find him particularly funny.

1992 Lawrence Welk (b.1903) American bandleader and show peep.

1997 - Ashes of Star Trek creator, Gene Roddenberry are launched into space.
