Big Red Letter Days
Via a tip from Althouse, I've discovered Wikipedia's calendar features. Folks, this could be dangerous. In just a few seconds, I've learned that today is not only the one year anniversary of Saddam Hussein's capture, it's also the date that Drake set out on his around the world voyage. And, not only that, 23 years ago, General Wojciech Jaruzelski declared martial law in Poland.
Unfortunately, the hard liners picked the wrong time to try to tighten the noose around the Poles. With men like Lech Walesa, Pope John Paul II and Ronald Reagan on the watch, Poland was destined to be free again.
I had a college boyfriend for a time who was a nice guy, but not particularly intelligent. Is it wrong that one of the reasons I lost interest in him was that he had no idea what martial law was?
