The Unfortunate Ones

I always felt really bad for people born on December 25. Would it really hurt their parents and hospitals to conspire to give kids a different birthday? Would they ever know?

Anyway, here's a list of the sad unfortunate ones:

Rickey Henderson
Sissy Spacek
Barbara Mandrell (who may deserve such a bad birthday)
Jimmy Buffett
Annie Lennox
Anwar El-Sadat (though it probably didn't matter much for Sadat)
Humphrey Bogart
Isaac Newton
Cab Calloway
Shane McGowan
Larry Csonka
Ken Stabler
Noel Redding
Don Pullen
Ismail Merchant
Nellie Fox
Marguerite Churchill
Clark Clifford (who may also deserve a bad birthday)
Clara Barton

I should be roasting vegetables instead of screwing around like this. But what would the world do without my meaningless blog posts?
