    On december 21 1987, the following events occured:

    * On December 21, 1987, Soyuz TM-4 launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome carrying Musa Manarov, Anatoly Levchenko, Vladimir Titov to Mir. [source]
    * By letter dated December 21, 1987, the complainants requested copies of "any information written or otherwise, such as correspondence, memos, data drafts, preliminary or complete reports of the wage and classification study being prepared by Bugaeff-Cogswell Associates, Inc. [source]
    * By letter of complaint filed with this Commission on January 14, 1988, the complainants alleged that the respondent had not fully complied with the request for copies of records which they made on December 21, 1987 . [source]


    I also happen to know I share my bday (date, not year) with Stalin. Nothing compared to my man-hating dike aunt who shares a bday with Hitler though.

    British Forces defeat the Argentines at the Battle of Goose Green.

    No one important was born (except for me of course). No one died either.

    Republic Day in Azerbaijan and Armenia (both 1918)
    Sunset and sunrise occur along Manhattan's street grid centerline. That's neat.
    And it's the Feast Day of some saints who no one cares about.

    As for unimportant stuff, nothing on that very date, but take your pick of the 9/26 (or 26/9 if you will) events.

    edit - you know, I'm thinking "quoted for truth" might have had more meaning if I actually had checked the "quote post" checkbox... :wallbash:
