Today is my birthday, and I thought I'd have a look on the web for anything in history that may have made the news on the day I was born.

I found that I share my birthday with Albert Einstein, astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli, railroad engineer Casey Jones, composer Quincey Jones and actor Michael Caine, amongst others.

14th March
1950 - the F.B.I.'s 'Most Wanted' list made its debut.
1964 - Jack Ruby was found guilty of the murder of Lee Harvey Oswald.

It was interesting to read a few other things about the year I was born 1958:
Eisenhower was President, Nixon Vice-President.
U.S. homicide rate (per 100,000) was 4.5
Cost of a 1st class stamp was $0.04
Federal debt was $279.7 billion
U.S unemployment was 4.3%
I wonder what these statistics are now?

Have a look here to see your birthday history and post your interesting information
