Not bad for a calendar day

So many things began on October 1. Here is an abbreviated list (I am leaving out a lot of things):

Yosemite National Park, Stanford University, the Ford Model T, the first Soviet Five Year Plan, the George Washington Bridge, the first U.S. superhighway, NASA, the Free Speech Movement, the Concorde’s first supersonic flight, the CT scanner, the compact disc, and the first legal recognition of gay partnerships.

Oh, and also the People’s Republic of China and Disney World.

Not bad for a calendar day.
