Birthday Tandems

I also found out from The Lancelet that Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin were born on the same date -- February 12, 1809. That seems like an unbeatable duo for a single day. Any birthday experts out there who can top it (or even challenge it)?

None of those compare, clearly, but I certainly appreciate the thoroughness. Two thoughts:

1. Certainly, no two more annoying people were ever born on the same day than Neil Diamon and Aaron Neville.

2. Ellen Degeneres and Anita Baker are the SAME AGE? I would've made Anita at least 10 years older. Sorry, Anita.

Momentous April 14 events:

-- Lincoln shot at Ford's Theater.

-- Bombay harbor explosion kills 700.

-- Oxygen tank on Apollo 13 explodes.

-- Titanic hits iceberg.

-- Anthony Michael Hall born

-- Caroline Rhea born

-- Da Brat born

-- Sarah Michelle Gellar born

-- David Justice (the man who married and then cheated on Halle Berry, and something about baseball) born

-- Adrien Brody born

-- The Comish (sic) born

... It just keeps getting worse, doesn't it?

(On the plus side, Webster copyrighted the first dictionary (which is only good because I'm a geek), and William Howard Taft became the first President to throw out the first pitch of a season. And Greg Maddux was born. And Rod Steiger.)
