Wiki - Meme

Found this one at http://ballsandwalnuts.com/ - I love Doug's blog!
Go to Wikipedia (http://www.wikipedia.org/). 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.

Three events:
1703 - Daniel Defoe is placed in a pillory for the crime of seditious libel after publishing a politically satirical pamphlet, but is pelted with flowers.
1973 - A Delta Air Lines jetliner crashes while landing in fog at Logan Airport, Boston, Massachusetts killing 89
1999 - NASA intentionally crashes the Lunar Prospector spacecraft into the Moon, thus ending its mission to detect frozen water on the moon's surface.
Two important birthdays:
1965 - J. K. Rowling, English novelist, also 1980 - Harry Potter, fictional protagonist of J.K. Rowling's series
1901 - Jean Dubuffet, French painter and sculptor (d. 1985)
And one interesting death:
1944 - Antoine de Saint-Exupery, French pilot and writer (b. 1900)
and I couldn't resist adding:
Holidays and observances:
La Hae Hawai‘i - Hawaiian Flag Day
