On This Day 2.3.17

Born On This Day in 1821 was Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to earn an MD degree in the U.S. She fought against slavery, sexisim and ignorance. She was a fucking badass.

On This Day in 1831: U.S. copyright law began protecting music after excessive pirating of Hall and Oates wax cylinders.

On This Day in 2017 was my final day at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. I left some creamer in the fridge if you want to use it.
