Happy Birthday Abe, Chuck, and Ed

Today, is my brother’s birthday. He shares a birthday with Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin. They were both born on 12th February 1809, two hundred years ago. There is a publishing and TV bonanza of material about the sixteenth US president. I imagine interest in Darwin may be a little less wide-spread.

My brother was born in 1970, so next year is his significant birthday. He gets to share his birthday with two great men. I share mine with Rush Limbaugh, PW Botha, and Herman Goring; I seem to be somewhat more liberal in my politics than is typical for those born on my birthday.
