Today, July 23, is the birthday of a very, very special person. Most of you first heard about this person after they embarrassed President Clinton in the mid-1990s; but some of you may have spotted their brilliance when they were young and struggling in California, virtually unknown to the rest of the world. Because of some rash acts in their past, many have judged this person unfavorably - and, some may argue, unfairly. But no matter what the detractors say, you simply cannot deny this person's impact on American humor, government, pop culture, and - yes - the national spirit.
With all that said...happy birthday, Monica Lewinsky!
Ms. Lewinsky turns 36 today. There are other celebrity birthdays today, too, but none of any real importance.
