Fri. Filler

Kirk Douglas 100 today, if he hasn't given up & shuffled off between the time we're typing this & its scheduled publication. Other important people born on this day, in no particular order: Redd Foxx, Margaret Hamilton, Judi Dench, Felicity Huffman, John Milton, Broderick Crawford, Peter Kropotkin, Donny Osmond, Dick Butkus, Neil Innes,John Malkovich, Hermione Gingold, John Cassavetes, Buck Henry, Donald Byrd, Junior Wells, Deacon Jones, & Rikk Agnew. Jesus H., there really is one born every minute, isn't there?

Last but far from least, two born this day who contributed to what passes for culture on this miserable ball of rock & gas, Clancy Eccles & Junior Wells.
