wikihistory meme

ed. sidenote, i'm tired of the sticky post: donate!

I've been tagged by cadiz for the Wikihistory meme. I hate memes. But this one was kinda fun and i'd already told omar i was gonna do it. so i will, but i'm not gonna like it. and i'm not tagging anybody. so there!

1. Go to Wikipedia and enter your birthday without the year: August 30

2. List three events that occurred that day:
1850 - Honolulu, Hawaii, becomes a city.
1945 - Hong Kong is liberated from Japan by British Armed Forces.
1967 - Thurgood Marshall is confirmed as the first African American Justice of the United States Supreme Court .

3. List two important birthdays:
1944 - Molly Ivins, American political humorist and one of my personal favorites (d. 2007)
1958 - Anna Politkovskaya, Russian journalist (d. 2006) (there was a stunning profile of her in the New Yorker a few weeks back)

4. List one death:
1981 - Vera-Ellen, American actress (b. 1921) and star in "white christmas," one of my favorites...

5. List one holiday or observance:
International Day of the Disappeared an annual commemoration day created to draw attention to the fate of individuals imprisoned at places and under poor conditions unknown to their relatives and/or legal representatives.
