P.G. Wodehouse (1881-1975)

The Clog Almanac today honors P.G. Wodehouse, aka "Plum" who was born on this day in 1881. Who can read of the escapades of Bertie Wooster and his gentleman's gentleman Jeeves and not come away with strained smile and chuckle muscles?

Please don't go away uninformed: ALL of your kids's term papers and book reports ALL contain material plagarized from search results of the Ask Jeeves website (what, you didn't know? Tsk tsk.)

It is also the birthday of politician/scientist/novelist C.P. Snow, perhaps now remembered best for his examination of the science vs. humanities schism in western education in the book The Two Cultures.
