# CDXLVIII…Soapbox Excerpt…

As today, February 22, has not been touched on here, I thought I would post the following tidbit from my book…don’t worry; per the norm, it’s very short…

# xxvi…George Washington (1732-1799)…

It might just do you well to note today’s date, February 22, is the birthdate of the founder of the United States, First President George Washington.  Yes, the same President that can be seen everywhere these days; it is his portrait that adorns the one thing that “We, The People” understand:  money (the $1 bill, to be precise)!

So, in today’s society where money is king, you might want to thank whatever Gods you pray to that created the Father of Our Country that he came into existence; just food for thought as I leave you to enjoy your Washingtons, Benjamins and Jacksons.

Also, celebrating today as their birthday are; late radio/television announcer Don Pardo (1918-2014), late Detroit Tigers’ manager Sparky Anderson (1934-2010), former NBA star “Dr. J” Julius Erving (1950), former Black Sabbath bassist Dave Spitz (1958), veteran actor Kyle MacLachlan (1959), late “Crocodile Hunter” star Steve Irwin (1962-2006) and the very talented veteran actress Drew Barrymore was born in 1975.

Thank you for listening to this “soapbox” edition from the left…more to come probably when the weather gets a little nicer…you know, concert season?
