September 18: Cheeseburgers and ADHD

Usual Suspect brownielocks.com has a zillion suggestions today. According to brownielocks, today is:
  • The birthday of the United States Air Force (the Air Force was officially separated from the Army on this date in 1947 by the National Security Act);
  • Chiropractic Founders Day (oh, my aching back....);
  • Hug a Greeting Card Writer Day (which sure as heck sounds safer than American Greetings' suggestion that September 14 was Hug a Crabby Stranger Day);
  • National Attention Deficit Disorder Awareness Day;
  • National HIV/AIDS and Aging Awareness Day;
  • National Respect Day; and
  • World Water Monitoring Day.

We here at The Blog of Days have a limited attention span, whether or not it is medically caused, so we'll support ADHD Awareness Day on this exhaustive, and exhausting list.

Many of the other Usual Suspects proclaim today National Cheeseburger Day.

That sounds good to us.

Better, we think, than commemorating the capture of newspaper heiress Patty Hearst, although that also happened on this date, in 1975.
