October 3

Leta has continued a game originated by others: Name 3 events, 2 births, and 1 death that have happened your birthday.

Thanks to Wikipedia, it's durned easy. Not just darned, 'durned'.

1283: The Prince of Wales became the first person executed by Drawing and Quartering. Ouch.

1863: Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving to take place on the last Thursday of November.

1992: Sinead O'Connor ripped up the photo on Pope John Paul II, on Saturday Night Live.

Buckets of writers, poets, musicians, and actors. Among them:

Gore Vidal-- 1925

Chubby Checker-- 1941

Roddy McDowall-- 1998

Well. That last one was a bit morbid. Still. Fun to know.
