         4.  National Potato Day—celebrating that great tuber which is enjoyed in many forms from chips to fries to baked and due to a failure in Ireland blessed us with a huge migration of Irish.
         5. No Dominion Day—celebrating not the status of Canada or New Zealand but rather the birthday of the noted Welsh poet Dylan Thomas (“And death shall have no dominion”) on this day in 1914 who died way too early at the young age of 39 due to excessive drinking.
On this day in:                                           
         a. 1838 Missouri Governor Lilburn Boggs issued an executive order which required Mormons to leave the state or be exterminated.
         b. 1904 the first underground subway line in New York City commenced operations.                                          
         c. 1936 Wallis Simpson filed for divorce which would enable her to marry King Edward VIII which resulted in his abdicating his throne.
         d. 1964 Ronald Reagan launched his political career by delivering a speech in support of the candidacy of Barry Goldwater—great speech but did not stop the LBJ landslide that crushed Goldwater’s election bid.
         e. 1981 in a major oops moment a Soviet Union submarine U-137 ran aground in Sweden.
Reflections love versus throne: “I am so anxious for you not to abdicate and I think the fact that you do is going to put me in the wrong light to the entire world because they will say that I could have prevented it." Wallis Simpson.
