April 14

Yes. I'm doing my taxes. I am one of those procrastinators, because a) I hate it and b) the past several years I'm writing a check.

Tonight is no exception.

Other notable things about April 14. 98 years ago tonight they were filling lifeboats in the north Atlantic. Of the 2200 aboard, fifteen hundred perished.

On April 14, 1986 President Ronald Reagan ordered Operation El Dorado Canyon, a series of air-strikes against ground targets in Libya in response to Gaddafi's sponsorship of terrorism.

But April 14 isn't all heavy. That same morning my eldest kid was born. Happy birthday punk.

I kinda miss the deduction though.


UPDATED: crap, I forgot Lincoln's assassination. ErikW reminded me.
