Some of you, like my mom, may have learned about today from a Morning Edition story on NPR. Or maybe you read the more detailed story in today’s Independent. Or even explored the links in Metafilter’s annual entry (I’m not sure how it got turned into a thread about anti-Americanism). Of course, if you need still more information about this celebratory day, there’s always Wikipedia.

It’s also David’s 1/4 birthday.

I think I’ll go get some pie to celebrate.
