Twenty-two years ago today, my world was blessed by the addition of my eldest daughter, Mena. It just seems like only yesterday she was knee-high to a grasshopper and, now, she is a unique individual that has made this father very proud.
It is in her honor and with great love that I present the list of her fellow celebrants; beginning with late historic pilot Charles Lindburgh (1900-1974), civil rights pioneer Rosa Parks (1913-2005), actor Conrad Bain, who played Mr. Drummond on”Diff’rent Strokes” (1923-2013), comedian David Brenner (1936), and mega-producer George A. Romero (“Night of the Living Dead”, etc.) was born in 1940.
Also, today finds former Vice President Dan Quayle (1947), rock legend Alice Cooper (1948), actor Michael Beck, who played Swan in “The Warriors”, was born in 1949, and football legend Lawrence Taylor turns 55 today (1959).
Coincedentally, fellow Long Branch, NJ native and country superstar Clint Black was born today in 1962, while boxing legend Oscar de la Hoya was born in 1973, singer Natalie Imbruglia (1975), rapper Cam’ron (1976) and current TNA star Chris Sabin finishes the list, born in 1982.
I hope my daughter has a blessed day…I know I have since 1992…
