Uncle Pax's Almanac: President's Day 2010

Happy President's Day from Utopia, New Jersey.  It's a sunny morning here, though we are due some more snow this afternoon and evening, probably not much, and certainly not as much as we saw last week. But, as I always say, I'll take snow over rain any day!

On today's date in 1879, U.S. President Hayes signed a bill that allowed female attorneys to argue cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.

Chances are you enjoy questioning the status quo if today is your birthday because you share the date with Galileo Galilei.

Today's quote is one of those unvarnished truths, spoken by ex President, Jimmy Carter," Republicans are men of narrow vision, who are afraid of the future."

Today's obscure term is food related, do you know what "Adam and Eve on a raft, and wreck 'em" is?

Here's wishing you a presidential day free of wrecked rafts.
