"Birthday in history" thing...

Once again, I am a sheep. Interesting timing, though, considering what day it is :-)

1. Type in your birthday (minus the year) in the search bar at http://wikipedia.org/.
2. List three interesting facts, two births, and one death that happened on your birthday.

Events
1682 - Robert Cavelier de La Salle discovers the mouth of the Mississippi River, claims it for France and names it Louisiana.
1953 - Warner Brothers premieres the first 3-D film, entitled House of Wax
2003 - 2003 invasion of Iraq: The Ba'ath regime headed by Saddam Hussein in Iraq is deposed. (never mind that the stated reason was unfounded)

Births
1926 - Hugh Hefner, American editor and publisher
1954 - Dennis Quaid, American actor

Deaths
1959 - Frank Lloyd Wright, American architect (b. 1867)

While I'm at it, happy birthday to otakubilly, delphinus, gryphlet, Dennis and Hef.
