Woody Allen (Allan Stewart Konigsberg) is 81 years old today.

Allen performed card and magic tricks in his youth and underwent the legal
process of changing his name to Heywood Allen when he was 17.

He often played up his neurotic personality for laughs in his films, but was
also open about his extensive stint in psychoanalysis.

PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) –  Archaeologists have pinpointed what they think
is the exact spot where the Pilgrims lived in the years after landing in the
New World.

Every American schoolchild knows the Pilgrims landed in Plymouth in 1620,
but exactly where has been elusive.

Archeologists from the University of Massachusetts Boston tell The Boston
Globe
they have discovered what is believed to be part of the original
settlement, based on the discovery of a calf’s bones, musket balls, ceramics
and brownish soil where a wooden post once stood.

UMass-Boston professor David Landon says the discoveries are compelling
evidence that a sliver of the original settlement existed at what is known as
Burial Hill.

The curator of collections at the Plimoth Plantation says the discovery will
"absolutely change what we understand about that settlement.”

Sammy Davis Jr nearly lost his life in an automobile accident in San Bernardino,
California
. The impact of the crash had driven Sammy’s face into the steering
wheel, and his left eye was forced out of its socket by the bullet-shaped horn
button at the center of the wheel of his 1954 Cadillac. After wearing an eye
patch for years, he was fitted with a glass eye.
