Because on Saturday I'll be at the Phoenix Comicon, I wanted to give advance notice of some significant dates in history, as taken from the official Jeff Mariotte 2008 Calendar:
On January 26 in:
1926: First TV broadcast (this one is the subject of some debate), in Scotland.
1927: Edward Abbey born (Abbey makes a cameo appearance in River Runs Red, which closely matches his cameo appearance in my life--early notice for all you Abbey fans!).
1929: Jules Feiffer born.
