The Moron's Daily Briefing

Feb. 17 - Today is President's Day in the United States, presumably because no American president has ever been born on February 17. It is, however, the birthday of one of the worst minor-league baseball players in recorded history. Michael Jordan turns 40 today.

Others celebrating their birthdays today include Rene Russo (1954), Jim Brown (1936), Alan Bates (1934), Hal Holbrook (1925), and Red Barber (1908).

Today was the festival of Quirinalia in Ancient Rome.
