3/13/13 is the day I received an email from Ron McGraw firing me from the IHSA for reporting plagiarism. I regret not appreciating the significance of the date at that time.

Precisely fifty years before that, the French began getting their todds feenised as well. Coincidence? I think not.

EDIT: And forty years before, Kitty Genovese's todds got really feenised! 3/13/XXX4 is really an auspicious date!

Jeff Hardy's todds were fully feenised on March 13, 2011. Because of alleged drugs.

3/13/1963: Ernesto Miranda's todds are temporarily feenised when he gets arrested, but eventually the Supreme Court overturned his conviction and he was set free (not on a March 13th though, that's the important part)

We should all take a moment to express how thankful we are for the Wikipedia article on "March 13."
