Happy Birthday, Mom

Evo and his MomImage by mrsonion42 via Flickr60 years ago today, the Chicago Tribune printed their famous "DEWEY BEATS TRUMAN" gaff. OOPS! And according to history reported on Google, not a godsdamned thing else happened that day.

I posit to you that a great travesty of justice occurred when those few hundred errant copies captured the attention of a nation. For that event overshadowed something far more important to me.

My mom was born.

Happy birthday, Mom. Sixty years. Seven hundred twenty months. Twenty one thousand, nine hundred fourteen days. Well over half of a million hours. But who's counting? ;)

I love you, Mom. Here's to another 60 more.
