October 2016: Nobel Intentions

October 21 in history (via Wikipedia)

1892 – Opening ceremonies for the World's Columbian Exposition are held in Chicago, though because construction was behind schedule, the exposition did not open until May 1, 1893.

Delays in a major urban project? How did that ever happen? 

Birthday quote

"I intend to leave after my death a large fund for the promotion of the peace idea, but I am skeptical as to its results." 

- Alfred Nobel (21 October 1833 – 10 December 1896)


Happy birthday keyboardist Manfred Mann!
