I stole this from Fringes. Enjoy!

The meme: According to Wikipedia, three historical events that happened on my birthday, May 3:

1901 – Great Fire of 1901 begins in Jacksonville, Florida

1937 – Gone with the Wind, a novel by Margaret Mitchell, wins the Pulitzer Prize

2003 – New Hampshire’s famous Old Man of the Mountain collapses

Two “important” shared birthdays

1921 – Sugar Ray Robinson, boxer

1932 – Robert Osbourne, awesome TCM host

One notable death

1758 – Pope Benedict XIV (b. 1675)

Any holiday or observances

World Press Freedom Day
