21 February 12020 is International Mother Language Day according to my notes, and I’m really not up to figuring out if that’s correct or some weird screw-up. And it’s the ancient Roman holiday of Feralia. It is Arthur Darby Nock’s birthday. On this day in history Malcolm X was assassinated during National Brotherhood Week 1965—as Tom Lehrer noted in the introduction to his song on the album That Was The Year That Was. And I’m done with the day.
