I can't complain but sometimes I still do

Happy 420! And, please, don't bogart the chocolate chip cookie dough!

I almost forget to wish my stoner readers Happy 420 Day! I'd apologize, but you guys probably are too busy watching "Boy Meets World" reruns today to notice my almost-snub.

For those of you who have never experienced the highs of staring at blacklight posters while listening to really crappy 311 records, 420 (or April 20) is a national smokers day for potheads who celebrate by burning through lots and lots of pot. In other words, it's exactly like every other day for a stoner, except now it's "official."

Read more about it here if you're interested.

Where's the shout-out to those of us who celebrate Hitler's 117th birthday?

...the story of the Waldos, a group of San Rafael High School kids who gave Hager evidence -- letters, and so on -- to show they had created the term 420...

this one is the truth. they would meet at a spot on Mt. Tam.. near muir woods.. of baby baby and from a distance fame... at 420, after school.

Was someone was on goggle.com today? How about the fact that the territory of Wisconsin was created on this day in 1836? Yeah, I can do it too.

I have NEVER listened to 311 and I resent the accusation.

Also, how could I forget, it's Justice John Paul Stevens's birthday, and I know that I am wishing him many, many, many happy returns. Especially through January 2009.

Well Mark, I think the (admittedly dark) humor of that event would be lost on some people. At least with Hitler, it's long past.
