Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I just want to make it clear that I don't ordinarily keep track of celebrity birthdays, nor did I know before the 28th that the 28th is Alan Alda's birthday. I just heard it that morning on NPR Morning Edition at the top-of-the-hour Open, and I've enjoyed his work, so I mentioned it.

That is all.
