Here are partial lists of people who were born on August 14th, people who died on the 14th of August, and a few historical events from various August 14ths. I usually include these bits in the 'Today's Tune' posts, but that was totally dedicated to blackouts today. Sometimes these lists can be of interest. You might learn something you didn't know or remember.
