Blogging in Very Busy Times
So, today's entry is brought to you by the letter "m," which is also the title of a classic early German film. M is the 13th letter of the English alphabet. It would be interesting to see Cong. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who is very conservative, and Cong. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a progressive leader, engage in a spelling bee.
We are also brought to you by the 6, which is the first prime number that is neither a square number nor a prime number.
We are also adding Millard Fillmore, from the Whig Party, who was the 13th president of the United States from 1850-1853.
And, our city of the day is Bursa, Turkey, the fourth largest city in Turkey which has a population of 1.7 million; it was the capital of the Ottoman Empire from 1326 to 1365.
