Friday Fun Link: Does Today Suck?

|

A website for history buffs and general Internet time wasters: "Does Today Suck?" surveys every day as it arrives for significant or interesting or terrible events that happened that day in history, along with prominent births, and declares the day good, cool, or bad.

Today, thanks to the 1873 Colfax Massacre and 1975 Lebanese Civil War beginning, declared "bad." And who knew Thomas Jefferson, Guy Fawkes, and Christopher Hitchens (the only one of the three Reason has run a feature interview with) shared a birthday?
