Saturday Morning Post.

Saturday Morning Post.

June 8. In 1786, commerically produced ice cream first came on the market. In 1869, the suction vacuum cleaner was patented. In 1887, the punched-card calculator was patented. In 1949, Helen Keller, Dorothy Parker, Danny Kaye, Fredric March, John Garfield, Paul Muni and Edward G. Robinson were named Communists by the then-misguided FBI. In 1949, Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four was published. In 1953, segregated restaurants were outlawed in DC. Happy Birthday, Marguerite Yourcenar, Wilhelmina Barns-Graham, Joan Rivers, Sara Paretsky, Mary Bonauto. It's Engineer's Day in Peru, Bounty Day in the Norfolk Islands and World Oceans Day. Mission: Figure, appreciate, swim & lick.
