Today is the first day of Spring.

There are:
12 days until April Fools' Day;
20 days until Palm Sunday;
21 days until First Day of Passover;
25 days until Good Friday;
27 days until Easter Sunday;
28 days until US Federal Income Tax filing day;

On this date in 1852 Harriet Beecher Stowe's Harriet Beecher Stowe's novel about slavery, "Uncle Tom's Cabin", was published.


Today is also Extraterrestrial Abduction Day.


Some persons born on March 20 who said interesting things:


Quote of the day:

"Democracy is the spawn of despotism. And like father, like son. Democracy is power and rule. It's not the will of the people, remember; it's the will of the majority."
-B.F. Skinner


Why Trump can't let go of his wiretapping claim.


Fareed Zakaria nails the secret to Trump's success:


Not everyone's thrilled Cheerios gave away 1.5 billion wildflower seeds to save the bees. Some say the packets contain invasive wildflowers that could overtake native species and spread disease.


Humpback whales are behaving oddly and scientists want to know why.


The Solar System could have more than 100 planets. Good news for Pluto, which may regain its planet status if new definitions for celestial bodies are approved.


The tardigrade, or Water Bear, is almost indestructible. Science finally found the reason why.
