I did some searching of who else has a birthday on August 4th. I expected an eclectic group of people, but this is a bit much:
- Roger Clemens
- Yasser Arafat1
- Louis Armstrong – (and what a wonderful world it is).
- Billy Bob Thorton
- Jeff Gordon
- A professional wrestler named Dean Malenko
- And a whole slew of others
Of course, with only 366 possible days from which to chose, there’s bound to be some important people or events that happened on any given day which could give it more significance. I mean, it could be the day Congress authorized the first U.S. Government securities, or who knows what else may have happened.
Yes, even on this hallowed National Chocolate Chip Day.

Today is also the 54th Birthday of Israeli singer Gidi Gov, lead singer of Kaveret and the famous song “Yo-ya”. He also recorded the famous Hebrew ballad Oof Gozal, though the words were actually written by Arik Einstien.
You should also give credit to Raoul Wallenberg, also born August 4th and a saviour of over 10,000 Jews from the Holocaust.
Danny, he did. “What else” contains a clever double link.
