Today is International Cat Rescue Day and National Banana Cream Pie Day. Today in 1970, Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) declared itself a republic independent of the UK. In doing so, Prime Minister and dictator Ian Smith attempted to erase the black majority vote rule (meaning that with a black majority a black Prime Minister could be elected). Dr. Seuss was born today.
Today is National Clam Chowder and National Chocolate-Covered Peanuts Day. Congratulations. On this day in history, in 1964, Muhammad Ali became the world heavyweight champion. George Harrison was born today.
