It’s June 28: four more days until we’re halfway through the year. It’s also Tau Day for those too snobbish for Pi Day. On this day in 1838, Queen Victoria was crowned in England. On June 28, 1914, Archduke Ferdinand of Austria and his wife Sophie were assassinated in Sarajevo; you know the rest. Exactly 5 years later, the Treaty of Versailles was signed, ending the war between Germany and the Allies. Finally, on June 28, 1969, the Stonewall Riots began in New York City—the historical beginning of the gay rights movement.
Notables born on this day include Paul Broca (1824), Richard Rodgers (1902), Mel Brooks (1926), Gilda Radner (1946), and Lalla Ward (1951). Those who died on June 28 include Archduke Ferdinand (see above) and Rod Serling (1975). Meanwhile in Dobrzyn, Hili is wary, but she’s aways cutest when she’s nervous:
