The Writer's Almanac from American Public Media --
For today, Thursday, September 21.
I love the little poem "Apology to the Wasps" by Sara Littlecrow-Russell:
" Terrorized by your stings,
I took out biochemical weapons
And blasted your nest
Like it was a third world country...."
So much happened today in history! Click the link above to read about it, but note:
It's the day The Hobbit was published in 1937 by J.R.R. Tolkien; it's sci-fi author H.G. Wells birthday; and it's horror master Stephen King's birthday. He's 59, by the way; Tolkien and Wells being dead.
