April 15th, the aftermath

Philip Gentry, whose pleasurable blog I quoted the other day, was born 38 years and a day after me. He explains in this blog post: Thursday, April 15, 2010 : Speaking of April. The post includes these photos of events which began on the 14th and carried over to the day of his birth.

{Gentry's caption: The sinking of the Titantic, in 1912, which hit the iceberg on the 14th but succumbed on the 15th.}

{caption: The death of Abraham Lincoln in 1865--similarly, he was shot on the 14th but succumbed on the 15th}

He adds, somewhat as I did, "On the plus side, it's also the birthday of Leonardo da Vinci (1452), Emma Watson (1990) and myself! (1980)"
