Belated birthday wishes go out to Bob Mullin who celebrated his birthday this past weekend.

What happened on this day : In 1620, the Mayflower with its 109 Pilgrims, set sail from Southampton and tragically on this same day in 1635, their colony of Plymouth was hit with the first U.S. recorded hurricane. In 1858, regular mail delivery to the East Coast begins and in 1914, the Panama Canal opened. In 1918, the first full-length cartoon was shown and in 1945 U.S. wartime rations of gasoline and fuel oil ended. In 1961, the building of the Berlin Wall began and in 1969 three days of drugs, sex and rock and roll took off as Woodstock opened in New York. In 1991, more than 750,000 people attended Paul Simon’s free concert in Central Park and finally, in 1939, the “Wizard of Oz” starring an then-unknown Judy Garland premiered at the Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

Quote for the day : “I’ve always taken the ‘Wizard of Oz’ very seriously. I believe in the idea of the rainbow and I have spent my entire life trying to get over it.” — Judy Garland

Have a great week!

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
