I always thought it to be a terrible coincidence that my parents' wedding anniversary (April 20) happened to also be Hitler's birthday and the day of the Columbine massacre. In addition, I recently learned that a friend had given birth to her son on September 11, 2001. But just when I thought my recent wedding had escaped unscathed by such unfortunate timing, I learn today from the Washington Post that it will also be remembered as the day rapper legend Ol' Dirty Bastard passed away. (You can thank him for popularizing the urban phrase, "N---a please!") Making things worse, the toxicology report now states he had cocaine in his system. Who knew?
And so, with every wedding anniversary to come, I'll be pouring a glass of champagne for me, my wife, and ODB.
