White Rabbit Day

Today is Dr. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson's birthday. Lewis Carrol to most of you. In honor of his Alice books, this is traditionally White Rabbit day. Find a hole, dive in, and come out the other end with a surreal experience.

Shoulda been named Mad Hatter day.

Also born this day:

Judge Learned Hand
Admiral Hyman Rickover
Donna Reed
Bridget Fonda

Born yesterday [lol]:

Gen. Douglas MacArthur
Philip Jose Farmer
Paul Newman
Jules Feiffer
Bob Ueker
Angela Davis
Gene Siskel
Wayne Gretzky
Ellen DeGeneris

And get set to celebrate tomorrow:
Arthur Rubenstein
Alan Alda
Jackson Pollock
Susan Sontag
Mikhail Baryshnikov
