Ten random things: January 16

Ten things that happened on January 16, 2001:

  1. My niece Hannah and I had dinner together at TGI Friday's in Leesburg
  2. President Bill Clinton awarded former President Theodore Roosevelt a posthumous Medal of Honor for his service in the Spanish-American War
  3. Laurent-Désiré Kabila, President of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, assassinated
  4. Jose Canseco signed a contract with the Anaheim Angels
  5. Citigroup reported fourth-quarter earnings before nonrecurring charges of $3.3 billion, a 12 percent increase
  6. President-elect George W. Bush announced that George J. Tenet would remain as director of central intelligence.
  7. The Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the nomination of John Ashcroft as Attorney General
  8. Seth P. Waxman made his final argument representing the government as Solicitor General before the U.S. Supreme Court
  9. The prosecutors in the impeachment trial of Philippine president Joseph Estrada resigned after the Senate voted against allowing evidence considered critical to their case
  10. My niece Mary Elizabeth "Libby" Heaton was born

Nos. 1 and 10 are related; I was tasked with picking up Hannah from school and babysitting while my sister-in-law was giving birth to Libby. And just in case you doubt my story, here is documentary evidence that today is her birthday, or at least that there is a massive conspiracy to make people think today is her birthday:
