happy birthday Jerry Springer

Its funny, Jerry and I don't often get together for our birthdays anymore, but I thought I'd surprise him with a phonecall and gift basket today. It really seemed to touch him so I think perhaps he was feeling a little lonely today. Anyway it was good to touch base and have a few laughs and if anyone has a bit of time today, I think he'd really appreciate a call. For your edification, some interesting events and other notable birthdays from this day in history:

1542 - Catherine Howard, the fifth wife of Henry VIII of England, is executed for adultery.
1633 - Galileo Galilei arrives in Rome for his trial before the Inquisition.
1935 - A jury in Flemington, New Jersey finds Bruno Hauptmann guilty of the 1932 kidnapping and murder of the Lindbergh baby, the son of Charles Lindbergh.
1955 - Israel obtains 4 of the 7 Dead Sea scrolls.
1960 - Nuclear testing: France tests its first atomic bomb.

1944 - Jerry Springer, American television host
1950 - Peter Gabriel, English musician
1961 - Henry Rollins, American musician
1974 - Gus Hansen, Danish professional poker player
