Adolf Hitler's birthday

I almost forgot: Today is Adolf Hitler's birthday. If he weren't dead, he would be 123.

I like remembering April 20 not because it was Hitler's birthday, but because a longtime friend and army buddy had a birthday on the same date and I liked to tease him, when he was alive, about the company he kept.

Since I have a poor memory, it's nice to have a memory touchstone ... for Hitler or for Bill McKechnie, take your pick.
