Today I learned that Jane Roe (not her real name) of Roe vs. Wade was only 2 years older than me. She has long been my hero and I always thought she fought our battle as a mature woman. Turns out she was nearly freakin' my age!
Also I learned that Will Shortz is 3 years younger than I am. I always assumed he was at least a few years older if not more. Geesh.
I signed up for the New York Times again. They are having a President's Day sale and I fell for it. The 50% off is good for a year but I promise that in one year's time, I will be right back here bitching about their horrible unsubscribe policy. Meanwhile I plan to enjoy reading it. (And their current incantation of digital basic subscription is way better and cheaper than the last time I signed up. Plus that deal was only good for 6 months. So I need to remember all that when I get annoyed about unsubscribing.)
