This Day in History

John Gay, composer of The Beggar's Opera, b. 1685 (Happy birthday, John! How appropriate is that!?)

The Tunguska Event, 1908 (photo at right... Not so much an anniversary to celebrate for the Siberian forest...)

Gone With the Wind published, 1936 (Happy birthday, Scarlett: I don't give a damn!).
