Another Meme

I saw this meme on another Wendy's blog, so I gotta try it:

Do a Wikipedia search of your birthdate, but leave out the year. List three interesting events, three people who were born, and three people who died on that day.

Here goes==
Events:


1892 - A hidden lake bursts out of a glacier on the side of Mont Blanc, flooding the valley below and killing around 200 villagers and holidaymakers in Saint Gervais.

1933 - Congress passes the first federal minimum wage law in the United States: 33 cents per hour.

2002 - Gay rights: The Superior Court of Ontario orders Ontario to recognize same-sex marriages

Births:

100 BC - Gaius Julius Caesar, Roman soldier and politician

1895 - Oscar Hammerstein II, American lyricist

1948 - Richard Simmons, American fitness trainer

Deaths:

1804 - Alexander Hamilton, first United States Secretary of the Treasury

1996 - John Chancellor, American television journalist (b. 1927)

1996 - Jonathan Melvoin, American musician and keyboardist (Smashing Pumpkins)


Maybe that's enough just to list them. I guess it's safe to say I was born on a day that is never boring...
