o Today is RACE YOUR MOUSE AROUND THE ICONS DAY, something to do while waiting for files to load.
o Today is WORLD SAUNTERING DAY. ***MARLAR: I’m more of a meandering kind of guy, myself. Can I saunter around the icons instead?
o RADIO COMMERCIAL DAY. The first radio commercial was broadcast on New York City’s WEAF. The Queensboro Realty Company paid $100 for 10 minutes of air time. ***MARLAR: Ten minutes… for one commercial! Of course, nowadays you have sixty-second commercials… but radio stations like to play ten of them in a row (well, every station except ours, of course)!
o Not a WEIRD holiday – but certainly worth noting: today is DREAM DAY, marking Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech on this date in 1963.
