Happy Washington's birthday! Only it isn't; his birthday is February 11 or 22 (depending on whether you use the Julian or Gregorian calendar). Today is actually an excuse for stores to have sales, and a long weekend for some (the US post office is closed today). Ansel Adams, Anthony Head, Poison Ivy (of the Cramps), Charles Barkley, Patty Hearst, Kurt Cobain, Lili Taylor--all born on this day.
