Happy Birthday, Philip R. Klein

Philip R. Klein will celebrate his 52nd birthday on Thursday, March 24, 2011.  

This information comes from his iMDB biography, which doesn't mention PRK Enterprises, Golden Triangle Dairy Queens, Philip's multiple defamation suits as both defendant and plaintiff, and the Southeast Texas Political Review.

Ironically, March is National Ethics Awareness Month, National March Into Literacy Month, National Mental Retardation Awareness Month, National Brain Damage Month,  and National Trisomy Awareness Month.

Other notable occurrences on Philip R. Klein's birthday:
  • In 1801, Alexander Romanov I was crowned emperor of Russia. In his later years, he became increasingly suspicious of everyone around him and eventually died under mysterious circumstances.

  • In 1930, Pluto was named a planet prematurely.

  • In 1937, a bus blew a tire, rammed into bridge, and killed 18 people in Salem, Illinois. The victims were members of a professional roller-skating unit, including a four-year old girl who may have been odiferous at the time of her tragic death.

  • In 1959, Prime Minister Gen. Abd al-Karim Qasim withdrew Iraq from the Baghdad Pact. This led directly to the first assassination plot by Saddam Hussein.

  • In 1962, Benny Paret was KOed in a welterweight title fight and died 10 days later.

  • In 1972, Great Britain imposed direct rule over Northern Ireland because of open hostility from the IRA, after British paratroopers killed 14 people during Bloody Sunday. This led to decades of violence.

  • In 1976, Argentine President Isabel Peron was deposed by the country's military

  • 1982, the USS Jacksonville collided with a Turkish freighter near Virginia less than a year after the submarine was launched.

  • In 1980, the archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Romero, was murdered during mass.
Sam Jaffe, Richard Widmark, Peter Lorre, and Jules Verne all died on this day. Notable people who share Philip's birthday include Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle and Clyde Barrow. Clyde later robbed the Beaumont National Guard Armory on College Street.  

A new reader sent me some interesting documents concerning Klein v. Wide-Eyed Communications, which is indeed still in litigation.  The case is being heard by Judge Thad Heartfield in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. I'll have more on that in a few days.

I know he's read the response I left on this site and KFDM.com. Is he crazy?
