Via Fence, who caught it from Banzai.

Go to Wikipedia and look up your birth day (excluding the year).

List three neat facts, two births and one death in your journal, including the year.

May 3rd

Three facts

1997 - In Dublin, Ireland, Katrina and the Waves win the forty-second Eurovision Song Contest for the United Kingdom singing "Love Shine a Light". (For Fence and NM)

1937 - Gone with the Wind, a novel by Margaret Mitchell, wins the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

2004 - In an open letter to George W. Bush more than 50 former high-ranking United States diplomats (including former ambassadors to Saudi Arabia and Qatar) complain about the Bush administration's policy towards the Middle East claiming that the President's approach, and specifically his endorsement of Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's disengagement plan, is losing the U.S. "credibility, prestige and friends". The letter follows a similar one written by 52 former British diplomats sent to Tony Blair a few days ago. (BBC)

Two births

1469 - Niccolò Machiavelli, Italian historian and political author

1959 - Ben Elton, British comedian and author

One death

1704 - Heinrich Ignaz Biber, Bohemian composer

Manipulation, comedy and music. A trinity of sorts?

    Hehe I know what you mean about being lazy...

    And Machiavelli rocks.

    Oh, Macchiavelli. My favourite political writer. Actually, now that I think about it, probably the only one I've ever really enjoyed reading (slight exageration never hurt anyone)

    Machiavelli? Sheesh; remind me to be cautious around you... never know which traits you may share. ;)
