Denzel Washington is 53 today...

...and so am I.

But wait, there's more. On this day in 1065, Westminster Abbey was consecrated. John Calhoun became the first Vice President of the USA to resign, on this day in 1832. There's a lot of focus on Iowa for the presidential race, but today in 1846 it became our 29th state. William Semple of Mount Vernon, Ohio, obtained a patent for chewing gum on this day in 1869. Also on this day in 1945, Congress officially recognized the Pledge of Allegience. (Seems to take them a while to do a lot of things, eh?) Finally, on this day in 1954... well, you know.

Happy Birthday, David. Ad multos annos! (always enjoy reading those who are older than I am). May God bless you richly.
