Happy Birthday, James Dean
When I was an adolescent, I took a lot of pride in telling my friends that I was born on the same day as Elvis Presley and David Bowie. Then I met my best friend and she retorted that she was born on the same day as James Dean.
It was the only time I’ve ever felt a tinge of birthday jealousy.
Happy birthday to both of them. Today would have been Mr. Dean’s 78th birthday.
