Today's famous birthdays

The German foreign ministry is sending me lots of exciting emails about the anniversary of the Treaty of Rome. This is indeed significant, but I had a look at Wikipedia for today's other anniversaries, especially birthdays. Quite a lot of them, mostly famous actors:
A good reason to commemorate Patrick Troughton, the second Doctor Who. But my mind is slightly boggled by the fact that both Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, and Richard O'Brien, the originator of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, turn 65 today.

Troughton's grandson is a kid named Harry Melling, who is perhaps best known for his portrayal of Dudley Dursley in the Harry Potter films.

Radio 4 had an interesting programme on the treaty of Rome at lunch time today.

I'm just shocked that I recognized 10 out of 12 on that list. Incidentally the two I didn't know were Joachim Murat and AJP Taylor. Usually it's a much lower ratio of people I know to people I don't!
