    Well, that's actually January 29th.


    But looking at that website again, I learned a cool fact I didn't know: Rossini was born on Feb. 29, the leap day! That's really neat.

    No, very bad. He only gets a birthday every four years.
    It's the greed of huge companies and huge organizations which control life in a kind of a brutal way ... It's gotten worse and worse, somehow, because physical science has given us more and more terrible deadly weapons, and the human spirit has been destroyed in so many cases, so what's the use of having the most powerful country in the world if we have killed the soul.
