January 27

Amber pages

Mordechai Richler, Canadian author of the splendid "Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz", born today in 1931

Dante Alighiere expelled from Florence, today in 1302 - the full tale is told on June 24

The trial of the Gunpowder Plotters began, today in 1606. But this too has its full tale told - including the rather interesting parts about who Guy Fawkes really was, and why that date - elsewhere in this blog: try November 5, you never know

South Vietnam unconditionally surrendered to North Vietnam, today in 1975 - yet one more on the sadly long list of foreign wars that America had no business to be involved in, and then lost.
