Friday’s child

I note in passing that Rebecca Black is sweet sixteen today, and is, as of the last time I looked, the youngest person listed by Wikipedia as having been born on the 21st of June, which, in 1997, was not at all a Wednesday. (Obligatory fanboy reference: They list her as “singer, dancer, actress.”)

And there’s this:

Other noteworthy summer debuts: Jane Russell (1921), Mariette Hartley (1940), Berke Breathed (1957), and Edward Snowden (1983).

    I’m sure you’d send Snowden a card – IF you could find him.

    It would be most amusing if he were to receive it.

    Oh, and congrats on your Undue Influence on Brian Ibbott. :)

    I double checked, and June 21 of 1997 was a Saturday. My oldest turns 16 on July 5, so I remember the day of the weeks that year. So if she was born early enough in the day, it might have been Friday somewhere on the globe.

    Well, that’ll teach me to believe some perpetual-calendar Java app.
