Ah, today is the day that we should rue: on this date in 1918, the US Congress first approved daylight saving time. (It was repealed after WWI ended, reinstated only during WWII, and finally established in 1966.) Now that we’ve had our history lesson for the day, how about some current events?

Today is also the birthday of the United States’ most famous loser: William Jennings Bryan. (Oh, come on, you know who he is. Three-time Presidential candidate? “You shall not crucify mankind on a cross of gold!”? Losing lawyer in the Scopes Monkey Trial? Oh, you people have no sense of history.)

  • Oh no you di’nt slip in a Duke chant! 😉

  • Can I redress the balance with a quick shout for UNC?

    Let me speak for Andy and myself here: NO!

    Try it again and feel the wrath of Akismet 😉
