Go to Wikipedia. Type in your birth date (but not year). List three events that happened on your birthday. List two important birthdays and one interesting death. Post this in your journal. (seen various blogs last week)

1940 - Walt Disney begins serving as an informer for the Los Angeles office of the FBI; his job is to report back information on Hollywood "subversives".

1483 - Martin Luther, German protestant reformer (d. 1546)

1697 - William Hogarth, English artist (d. 1764) (chosen because it's a family name - my paternal grandfather's stepfather was a Hogarth)
