It Happened Today: March 20

Agustín Gómez Arcos (January 15, 1933 - March 20, 1998): http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/1122434.html

Agustín Gómez Arcos (Enix, Almería, Spain, January 15, 1933 - Paris, March 20, 1998) was a Spanish writer. "The Carnivorous Lamb — and immediately appealed to my hyper-Christian sensibilities associated with the word "lamb," not to mention the lamb imagery replete in Lorca‘s aforementioned play. First impressions are always lasting ones, and my first encounter with Gomez-Arcos was shrouded mythic possibilities which my mind has continued to romanticize ever since." --Richard Reitsma

Around 2000, Glickman moved to Santa Monica.

Sir Isaac Newton & Nicolas Fatio de Duillier: http://reviews-and-ramblings.dreamwidth.org/4264267.html

Sir Isaac Newton was an English physicist and mathematician. Newton had been reluctant to publish his calculus because he feared controversy and criticism. He was close to the Swiss mathematician Nicolas Fatio de Duillier, whom he met in London around 1690. In 1691, Duillier started to write a new version of Newton's Principia. In 1693 the relationship between Duillier and Newton deteriorated, and at the same time Newton suffered a nervous breakdown, and the book was never completed.

John Tyler Connoley is the son of Wesleyan missionaries. He came out to himself in 1991, while attending Indiana Wesleyan University. He is married to Rob Connoley. "The night my spouse and I first met, another couple in the room made bets on how long it would be before we were married. For me, it was one of those love-at-first-sight moments. He walked up to me at a Metropolitan Community Church event, smiled, and said, "Hi, my name's Rob," and I fell head over heels." --John Tyler Connoley
