Lou Reed, whom I think we can all agree is a Rock Legend, was born on this day, March 2nd in 1942. I can wish Lou a Happy Birthday for giving us great songs like “Perfect Day” and “Satellite of Love,” but I can’t seem to get past that mortifying horrorshow of an album, Lulu, that he made with Metallica last year.
Beloved children’s book author Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, was born on this day, March 2nd, in 1904! I loved Dr. Seuss’ books as a kid, my favorite being McElligot’s Pool, which I owned. Of the several animated features made from Seuss’ books, one of the best and most enduring is The Lorax, a thinly veiled cautionary tale of environmental exploitation, which is even more timely today than it was when it was written in 1971.
