My birthday is August 10

 
Normally when I get tagged I try to reply in the person's comments, or I've already done it or something. But this one actually seemed kind of new and fun and interesting, so when Lynda tagged me I put it on the back burner until I had a minute to actually do it. I'm not going to tag anyone else, but if you do this, let me know!

Instructions:

1. Go to Wikipedia.
2. In the Search box, type your birth month and day (but not year).
3. List three events that happened on your birthday.
4. List two important birthdays and one interesting death.
5. One holiday or observance (if any).

I'm assuming they mean things besides my exciting and wondrous birth, so I'm off to look ;-)

Events:
1856 - In Last Island, Louisiana, a hurricane kills about 400 people.
1981 - The head of John Walsh's son Adam is found in Hollywood, Florida. This event will later prompt the U.S. Congress to pass the Missing Children's Act, giving the Federal Bureau of Investigation greater authority to track the disappearance of children. It also makes Walsh a national spokesman against crime and eventually leads to the establishment of America's Most Wanted.
2005 - Lee Seung Seop dies from exhaustion in South Korea after playing 49 straight hours of StarCraft.
(I noted they didn't list anyone actually born the same year as me. I'd better hurry up and do something to get famous enough to get listed in Wikipedia so they don't have a gap! ;-) )

Birthdays:
1933 - Doyle Brunson, American poker player
1943 - Ronnie Spector, American singer (Ronettes)

Deaths:
1969 - Leno LaBianca, American businessman (murdered) (b. 1925)
1969 - Rosemary LaBianca, American housewife (murdered) (b. 1930)
(Can tell me who murdered them? No fair googling.)

Holiday or Observance:
Roman Catholicism - the feasts of at least 3 saints:
St. Laurence
St. Blaan
St. Deusdedit

Comments:
The Manson gang killed them, right?

What year was it that you were born, Jen, she asks saucily.
 
I love you Lori! Yes, it was the Manson Family!

I was born in 1970, woo hoo!
 
*insert big sh!t eatting grin*

Hiya! Hope you're doing good!

Hugs!
 
Well, happy early birthday to you!!!
 
Fun! Thanks, Jen!
 
It must be the Manson gang. The year 1969 gave it away.
 
Happy upcoming birthday!

BTW the crazy Manson family killed them before they killed Sharon Tate & her friends. I know way too much trivia.
