Born on the 4th of July

I  always wished I had been born on the fourth of July…can you just image your birthday being filled with parades, fireworks and barbeques every year?. Who cares that the celebration is not for you…it doesn’t matter. It would be a blast anyway (excuse the pun).

Below is a list of people born on the July 4…

President Calvin Coolidge

Columnists Ann Landers and her sister Abigail van Buren (Dear Abby)

Playwright Neil Simon

TV personality Geraldo Rivera

Writer Nathaniel Hawthorne

Flamboyant billionaire Leona Helmsley

Musician Mitch Miller

Basketball coach Digger Phelps

New York Yankee’s owner George Steinbrenner

Daughter of Robert Kennedy and Former Lt Governor of Maryland Kathleen Kennedy Townsend

No writer George M Cohen was not born on the 4th of July. He was born on the 3rd!

Please feel free to add to this list…

    She was hoping he’d be born on the 4th of July, but just missed
    having “a real live nephew of my Uncle Sam.”
