On this day in 524, the Burgundians defeated the Franks in the Battle of Vézeronce. The Franks have never forgiven those bastard Burgundians. Ten Irish immigrants who belonged to the secret society known as the Molly Maguires were executed in Pennsylvania. And in 1964, three young men from New York; Andrew Goodman, Mickey Schwerner and James Chaney, were murdered in Neshoba County, Mississippi. Celebrating birthdays today: Jane Russell, Lalo Schifrin, Ray Davies, Steven AND Elyse Keaton (aka Michael Gross and Meredith Baxter), Nils Lofgren, Michel Platini and Prince William. Today is Solstice Day. It is also Fathers' Day, so a big "Happy Fathers' Day" to all the dads.
