Historical events: The first fruit tree patent was issued to James E. Markham for a peach tree which ripens later than other varieties (1932); Rap star Ol' Dirty Bastard was arrested in Hollywood for allegedly wearing body armor, a forbidden garment because of his previous arrests. ODB was initially pulled over for driving eratically (1999).
Saint of the day: Saint Juliana was thrown into prison where the devil himself came to visit her. Unlike some female saints, Juliana was no shrinking violet, and launched into a series of debates and wrestling matches. Sadly, the devil got the upper hand when he appeared in disguise as a surprise witness at her trial. Juliana was tried and beheaded.
