The 58th anniversary of the publication of Atlas Shrugged is on October 10th. Any Gulchers with a birthday on that date?

    Other things to commemorate:
    On October 10, 1886, the first tailess dress coat for men was introduced at the Tuxedo Club , in New York. Eventually, the "tuxedo" became more popular than tails at formal occasions.
    Also, the start of the plastics industry happened on October 10, 1870 when John Wesley Hyatt introduced the Celluloid billiard ball to substitute for the more expensive and harder to get ivory ones
    Stick with me and you'll become king of trivia.
