It's Friday, May 25, National Wine Day. Happy birthday to philosopher/writer/journalist Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882). Today in 1977, 'Star Wars' opened in theaters. It earned seven Oscars and $800 million in worldwide distribution revenue. It should be mostly cloudy, with a northwest wind and a high in the low 70s. Open a bottle of wine and read Emerson's 'Self Reliance' essay today:
