On this date

John Kerry, U.S. senator, D-Mass., is 64
. . . . .

in 1909, Harper's Weekly featured a cartoon about Settlement Houses, establishments with programs designed to assist the urban poor. (See the cartoon and read an explanation.)
. . . . .
in 1941, Germany and Italy declared war on the United States; the U.S. responded in kind. (Go to article.)

Oh joy! John Kerry's has a birthday. One of my all time favorite senators (second only to anyone with the last name "Kennedy"). Although, I must admit that if you had asked me to guess what time of year his birthday fell on I would have given a date much closer to Halloween, not Christmas:0)

Or maybe April Fool’s.
