Ten random things: July 4

Ten Americans born on the Fourth of July:

  1. Louis B. Mayer, film producer
  2. Emerson Boozer, football player
  3. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, politician
  4. Becki Newton, actress
  5. Geraldo Rivera, journalist
  6. Hiram Walker, distiller
  7. George Murphy, entertainer and politician
  8. Al Davis, owner of the Oakland Raiders
  9. Rube Goldberg, cartoonist
  10. Stephen Foster, songwriter

I was thinking about calling this list "ten real live nephews or nieces of Uncle Sam," but on reviewing the lyrics to George M. Cohan's "Yankee Doodle Boy," I decided that being born on the Fourth of July wasn't necessarily synonymous with being a real live nephew (or niece) of Uncle Sam.
