Happy 51st, Professor Myers!

On this day in 1957,
A magnitude 9.1 earthquake shook the Andreanof Islands in Alaska, the second strongest quake in U.S. history (although Alaska would not become the 49th state until more than a year later), generating a tsunami that hit the Hawaiian island of Oahu.
Harry Belafonte’s Banana Boat (Day-O) was number 6 on the Cashbox Top 50 music charts.
Faith Daniels, former news anchor (CBS-TV), and Mona Sahlin, leader of the Swedish Social Democratic Party, were born.
And, sharing the birthdate with them is little-known blogger and zebrafish guru PZ Myers of Pharyngula and the University of Minnesota at Morris.
Happy 51st birthday, Pee Zed!
