Historical events: The bombardment of Fort McHenry by the British fleet inspired Francis Scott to write "The Star-Spangled Banner" (1814); "Lassie" made its television debut on CBS. The last show aired on September 12, 1971 (1954); Morrisey left The Smiths for a solo career (1987)
Saint of the day: Saint Guy, the patron saint of horses, was tempted into investing all of his savings in a commercial venture, thinking of the charitable work that would be possible from the riches it promised. The ship that carried his hopes was literally sunk in the harbour, however, and Guy embarked on a seven year pilgrimage to atone for his foolishness. None of this has anything to do with Peter Beadle, because nothing ever does.
