# CXLIX…For My Dear Friend Mike…

As I mentioned last year on this date, today is the birthday of a close personal friend of mine…Mr. Mike Reinke, whom I’ve known since forever. It is his 36th birthday and, with that and in his honor, I hereby complete the list of people born today.

Starting with the birthday of the most notorious gangster to walk the Earth, Al Capone (1899-1947), actress/comedienne Betty White (1922), former Catwoman Eartha Kitt (1927-2008), hair care specialist Vidal Sassoon (1928-2012), the voice of Darth Vader, Mr. James Earl Jones (1931), former Yankees coach Don Zimmer (1931), late puppeteer Shari Lewis (1933-1998), and talk show host Maury Povich (1939).

Also, the legendary pugilist Muhammed Ali was born in 1942, late comedian Andy Kaufman (1949-1984), The Rolling Stones’ guitarist Mick Taylor (1949), comedian Steve Harvey (1957), former Bangles singer Susanna Hoffs (1959), oddly ironic that Jim Carrey (who played the above Andy Kaufman) was born in 1962, First Lady Michelle Obama (1964), Jamaican rapper Shabba Ranks (1966), and former Sharks player Jeremy Roenick and cartoonist Genndy Tartakovsky {“Dexter’s Lab”} were both born in 1970.

Worth mentioning to finish are the 1971 birthday of Kid Rock and former wrestler Kevin Thorne was born in 1977, as well as the 1982 birthday of Dwayne Wade and the 1985 birthday of Epica frontwoman Simone Simons.

Thank you all for listening…all three (LOL) of you…
