Yes, today is the day that my neighbours to the south commemorate the victory of the Mexican Army over the forces of Napoleon III. Feck all to do with anything, but these days it's a good excuse for Americans to drink Mexican beer (Dos Equis for those with taste buds).
It's also the birthday of Roddy 'Radiation' Byers, lead guitarist for The Specials and seemingly all-around nice guy. ¡Feliz cumpleaños, Roderigo!
