On This Day

Much has been made of today being the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen's death. But did you known that today is also the 1,953rd anniversary of the burning of Rome? Also on this day in 1945 Hitler published Mein Kampf and in 1940 FDR was nominated for an unprecedented third term. Also on this day in 1936 the Spanish Civil War broke out and Brenda Lee earned a #1 hit with "I'm Sorry" in 1960. She was only 15 years old. And let's not forget that in 2008 "The Dark Night" opened with a highest-grossing weekend.

This has been a very busy day.
