Today is an important day, a sad day, a day that should be marked for all time as a somber occasion to remember a comic legend. Yes, I am referring to William Penn Adair Rogers, aka Will Rogers, that American humorist and early star of the silver screen, who died this day in 1935 on a flight with Wiley Post somewhere near Barrow, Alaska. It is a sad day indeed, as it is also the day that Napoleon Bonaparte was born. But, that is less important. That is all.
