October 6, 1964

Yes, sports fans, I was born at 9:18 am forty years ago on October 6, 1964.

On that day, the No. 1 song was Dancing in the Street by Martha & the Vandellas. Towards the World Brain, by Dr. Eugene Garfield, was first published October 6, 1964. Also on that day, the Beatles recorded "Eight days a week."

Stuff on TV that night included new episodes of The Fugitive, Man from U.N.C.L.E, Petticoat Junction.

The Roanoke paper reported on October 6, 1964, that Virginia Tech might increase the number of women in its student body beyond 300.

Other lawyers besides me born that day: Michael Chase of South Carolina, Caroline Fiore of Massachusetts, Holly Grubs of California, Joseph Jevic of Louisiana, Daniel Konicek of Illinois, Jennifer Palmer of Colorado, Mark Powell of Pennsylvania, and Katherine Staton of Texas.

It appears that at 9:18 am on October 6, 2004, I will be driving to a meeting in Lee County.
