Media magnate Rupert Murdoch is 8o years old. While I think that he is partially responsible for the corporate evil that is ruining the world, when I met him many years ago, he was a very nice guy. He even wished me the best of luck during our meeting. Also born on this day: writer Douglas Adams, singer Bobby (“Don’t Worry, Be Happy”) McFerrin, and Lawrence Welk. Cheers!
