Break out the bubbles and blow up the balloons, today is not only the Summer Solstice (or Winter Solstice here in the Southern Hemisphere - mulled wine anyone?) it's also Roderick C. Meredith's birthday. Born this day in 1930, Rod is now a Methuselah-like 86 years old. Sadly, Rod doesn't approve of birthdays (tough luck if you're a kid growing up under his authoritarian administration) so it's highly doubtful he'll be blowing out any candles or pinning any tails on donkeys (though the LCG ministry certainly has a lot of braying asses available).
A trivia question for this auspicious occasion. What does the formibable 'C' in Rod's name stand for? Charles? Christopher? Crispian? Anyone able to help out? It's unlikely to be the same as Packatollah Dave's: full name David Crowl Pack.
