So Madoff is going to be sentenced on the 16th of June. I was noticing that date and wondering why it seemed significant. Oh right. It means I get to celebrate my 66th birthday on the 17th thinking about him being in jail. Not a big deal, really, since he's one of the few financeers that didn't pillage my 401k 101k over the past year.
The Battle of Bunker Hill was fought on the 17th of June in 1775. It was also actually fought mostly on Breed's hill, not on Bunker Hill. I have a vast store of relatively useless information.
