MARCH 27, 2002: There aren't

MARCH 27, 2002: There aren’t all that many dates that are on the tip of the average person’s consciousness. June 6, July 4, September 11, December 7 are probably the biggest dates (I’d add December 25, but last time I checked, most historians agree that Christ probably wasn’t born on that exact date).

It’s a safe bet that Wednesday, March 27, 2002 probably won’t be memorized as a date by most folks. But what do you call a day that has three celebrities (Dudley Moore, Milton Berle, and Billy Wilder) die, along with 16 Israelis killed by a suicidal Palestinian; and also has President Bush signing Campaign Finance Reform into law (and being promptly–and quite appropriately–sued by the NRA)?
