Birthday Meme...

The Rules:
1) Go to Wikipedia
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays and one death
5) One holiday or observance (if any)

Three events that happened on my birthday:
1803 - The United States Senate ratifies the Louisiana Purchase
1955 - Publication of The Return of the King, being the last part of The Lord of the Rings
1977 - A plane carrying Lynyrd Skynyrd crashes in Mississippi, killing lead singer Ronnie Van Zant and guitarist Steve Gaines

Two births and one death that happened on my birthday:
b. 1958 - Viggo Mortensen, American actor (yummy!)
b. 1970 - Michelle Malkin, American political commentator and author
d. 1926 - Eugene Debs, American labor leader and Socialist presidential candidate (b. 1855)

And one holiday observance:
Bahá'í Faith - Holy Day - Birth of the Báb

By the way, I stole this from Courtney (as usual)
