Today’s Featured Birthday
Journalist/TV host/author/former White House press secretary Bill Moyers (78)
“Our children may save us if they are taught to care properly for the planet; but if not, it may be back to the Ice Age or the caves from where we first emerged. Then we’ll have to view the universe above from a cold, dark place. No more jet skis, nuclear weapons, plastic crap, broken pay phones, drugs, cars, waffle irons or television. Come to think of it, that might not be a bad idea.” — Jimmy Buffet
