Today is the birthday of Aleksandr Sergeyevich Pushkin. Considered the Father of Russian Literature, he was also an inspiration to generations of Russian rebels. The Bolsheviks loved him. His life ended tragically in 1837, two days after being mortally wounded in a duel that he convened.

Today is also the anniversary of WW II's D-Day, the largest single-day invasion of all time. Coincidence?

We'll be celebrating today with Captain Morgan rum and cokes.
