1) Geburtstags Herr Mozart - Mr. Most-art's 253'd Birthday :party: 1-27-2009

Mozart circa 1780, by Johann Nepomuk della Croce

"Dad's a little nuts, from a family which included architects and bookbinders, and wrote a famous fiddle-playing manual which was published on my 0th birthday. My sister, Nannerl, and I froze our butts off riding all over Europe in a carriage to perform as child prodigies for daddy. It was a cottage industry."

2) The Vietnam War is 36 today, having finally ended 1-27-1973:

The Paris accord was signed ending America's then longest war, and providing for an exchange of prisoners and for the unilateral withdrawal of U.S. forces from South Vietnam.

The poet and philosopher George Santayana said: "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

-- Life of Reason, Reason in Common Sense, Scribner's, 1905, page 284"
