I turn a very grown-up sounding 34 today. Thank God it's not one of those milestone years like thirty or forty which tend be be awash in melancholia. If it weren't for the fact that I keep rupturing Achilles tendons, getting older is great. I woudn't trade the wrinkles and peace of mind of today for the fearlessness of youth at this point. Ask me again at fifty.
Also turning a year older on this day: fellow Hoosier Janet Jackson (Miss Jackson if you're nasty....), tennis starlet Gabriela Sabatini and the late, great Henry Fonda.
Today is also primary election day is many places including the commonwealth of Pennslyvania which lies 7 miles away (as the crow flies) across the Deleware River. If you live in PA, for pete's sake go vote!
