>While visiting Bubbe in the hospital this afternoon, my mom read an article in the Chicago Tribune listing important events that have taken place on July 2. Most of them were horrific, like Ernest Hemingway committing suicide or President Garfield's assassination. Fortunately, one good thing took place on July 2: Pres. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act into law. Oh, and also I got married and my friends' had a baby, so the day isn't a total loss. I did suggest that if my mom didn't stop reading the list of miserable events aloud, next year's edition might include a mother being pushed out the second story window of a hospital.
