19th amendment

Today, in 1919, was the day the Senate passed the 19th amendment, giving all women the right to vote. Ratification was accomplished when Tennessee voted to accept the amendment on August 18th, 1920. It's a good day!

And just because I love this poem, and think it's a rather appropriate one for Derrick's birthday, here is a great baseball poem, also courtesy of the Writer's Almanac.
