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.

October 2

Three events: (So randomly chosen. There were lots of interesting events.)

1187 - Siege of Jerusalem: Saladin captures Jerusalem after 88 years of Crusader rule. (Interesting.)
1789 - George Washington transmits the proposed Constitutional amendments (the so called "Bill of Rights") to the States for ratification.
1987 - The science fiction TV series Star Trek: The Next Generation premiered. (Okay, shut up!)

Two THREE important birthdays:

1452 - King Richard III of England (d. 1485)
1890 - Groucho Marx, American comedian and actor (d. 1977)
1951 - Sting, British musician and actor (Well, important to ME!)

One interesting death:

1985 - Rock Hudson, American actor (b. 1925) (First famous AIDS death. I remember that well 'cause I was also getting a root canal that day, my 15th birthday.)
