15 May 17

Today you can pick your own celebration! My tie honors the opening of the first McDonald's restaurant in 1940 (by the McDonald brothers), in San Bernardino, California. Other options include the 1252 papal bull (by Pope Innocent IV) setting out the rules for the legitimate torture of heretics, the 1869 founding of the National Woman Suffrage Association (by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton), and the birthdays of baseball greats George Brett (1953) and John Smoltz (1967).
