Out of ideas, and wanting to post, I thought of revisiting my old practice of posting dubious birthdays on Tuesdays. But then I looked up March 3: holy moly! There are a lot of neat people on March 3. For every David Faustino (1974), there's someone great!
* First of all, two professional cyclists were born on March 3. In 1871, French cyclist Maurice Garin was born, 93 years later, in 1964, Mexican cyclist Raul Alcala was born. Go bikes!
* I don't know who this is, but silent films child actress Kittens Reichert was born in 1910, and she died nearly 90 years later. Way to have a great name, Ms. Reichert!
* Jean Harlow was born the year after that. The original blonde bombshell died at 26 of renal failure.
* In 1959, Ira Glass, host and creator of This American Life, was born. He is responsible for hours and hours of happy radio listening for me.
* 1964 - Laura Elena Harring - Gorgeous brunette, best known for her work in David Lynch's Mullholland Drive. She and Naomi Watts created a lot of steam together in the middle of this movie.
