"Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please." (Mark Twain)

If you're like me, you're sick to death of "news" stories about today being 6/6/06 and thus implying some demonic connection. Piffle. I would rather recall that today is the 62nd anniversary of D-Day, the commemoration of those who served and died in a time when this nation went to war for legitimate purposes.

It is also the 117th anniversary of the great Seattle fire, when thirty blocks - virtually the whole of downtown Seattle - were destroyed in a single afternoon.

Finally, today would have been my mother's 67th birthday. Best wishes, Mom, wherever you are.
