Today is November 16th. On this date in 1952, Lucy first held the football for Charlie Brown. I won’t tell you what happened next, I hate spoilers. Today is also “The International Day for Tolerance.” an observance started by UNESCO. It’s much nicer than “The International Day for Intolerance” which was created by people tired of tolerating Ben Howe. WE HAD OUR REASONS. Also on this date, in today, I put links to stuff in the post below. So click on them already. And as usual, please consider this an Open Thread.
