A small coterie of famous people share my birthday, most conspicuously Adolph Schickelgruber (aka Hitler). I thought Justice John Paul Stevens was among them, but I couldn't find his name among the 4/20 luminaries (I just rechecked, and found it on another list). It also includes Lionel Hampton, and Tito Puente.
One interesting coincidence: Both George Takei (Mr. Sulu, from StarTrek), and Colon Powell (of My Lai cover-up and Iraqi disinformation fame) were born on this day in 1937.
PS: Among the non-famous people who share my birthday are/were my mother (now deceased) and my brother's wife (who happens to be one of the best elementary school teachers in the whole world).
