A dead hamster, some dead dictators, my birthday…and an iron curtain

March 5th is my birthday (yes, I am turning 43 today)

In 1953 Stalin died on this date. Last year on this day Hugo Chavez died. This year my nephew’s hamster died.

And in 1946 on this date Churchill made this important speech, which unfortunately these days seems more important than at anytime since 1989.

Update: Also on this date – today – Liz Wahl did this. Bravo Liz.
