Today in history

March 4 was Inauguration Day up until FDR's administration. When he was first inaugurated in 1933, he appointed the first female Cabinet member, Labor Secretary Frances Perkins.

Take a look at today's birthdays from Yahoo! Daily News and see if you see anything odd:

Folk singer Miriam Makeba is 70. Actress-singer Barbara McNair is 68. Actress Paula Prentiss is 63. Movie director Adrian Lyne is 61. Singer Bobby Womack is 58. Rock musician Chris Squire (Yes) is 54. Singer Shakin' Stevens is 54. Singer Chris Rea is 51. Actor Ronn Moss (``The Bold and the Beautiful'') is 50. Actress Kay Lenz is 49. Musician Emilio Estefan is 49. Movie director Scott Hicks is 49. Actress Catherine O'Hara is 48. Actress Patricia Heaton is 43. Actor Mykelti Williamson is 42. Actor Steven Weber is 41. Rock musician Jason Newsted (Metallica (news - web sites)) is 39. Actress Stacy Edwards is 37. Rapper Grand Puba is 36. Rock musician Patrick Hannan (The Sundays) is 36. Rock singer Evan Dando (Lemonheads) is 35. Actress Patsy Kensit is 34. Chastity Bono is 33. Actor Nick Stabile is 32. Rock musician Fergal Lawler (The Cranberries) is 31. Country singer Jason Sellers is 31.

Guess we're all supposed to know who Chastity Bono is, since she's the only one listed without an accompanying occupation. If she were a character in the book Good Omens, she'd be called a "professional descendent". Nice work if you can get it.
