April 23rd

215 BC: A temple is built on the Capitoline Hill dedicated to Venus… but the dedication is ruined when everyone notices her name is misspelled on the plaque.

1348: The founding of the Order of the Garter by King Edward III is announced… followed shortly after by the order of the see-thru bra.

2003: Beijing closes all schools for two weeks because of the SARS virus… and so the nation’s 4-year-olds can catch up on their factory work.
