Born today, you never like to be far from what is going on, and the closer you can be to the epicenter of matters of gravity and import, the better. You are determined to be useful, to have an impact and to do things that are memorable and lasting -- and you no doubt will have had that trait since you were very young. While you may not always follow the straightest or most efficient path from where you are to where you want to be, the likelihood of you reaching your destination is great -- and along the way you are sure to gain great experience and knowledge about yourself and the world around you.
Though you can mix and mingle with all sorts, including the "high and mighty," the truth is that there will always be something of the "small town" about you.
Also born on this date are: Harry S. Truman, U.S. president; David Attenborough, TV host; Don Rickles, comedian and actor; Rick Nelson, singer; Toni Tennille, singer; Sonny Liston, boxer; Ronnie Lott, football player.
