Bloomsday is June 16, Thursday. Here's a map of Stephen Dedalus's activities, tied to the Odyssey as a bonus.

Today is Flag Day. So let's have a short history of the pledge of allegiance. I'd just omit "under God."

The US Army's 236th birthday.

The 100th anniversary of Hubert Humphrey's birth.

And don't forget it's Bastille Day. That didn't turn out so well. Or maybe it did. Something to think about in connection with the Arab uprisings. [Oops! Helmut informs me it's July 14, which I actually knew but got carried away with all the other anniversaries. We can celebrate it early.]
