It's Wednesday, Sept. 20, National School Backpack Awareness Day. Happy birthday to author George R.R. Martin (1948), who warned us about winter. Today in 1973, tennis star Billy Jean King defeated former No. 1 men's tennis player (and avowed male chauvinist) Bobby Riggs in the nationally televised 'Battle of the Sexes.' Expect more rain, possible thunderstorms and a high around 60. Apparently winter is coming, so you should fill your backpacks with warm clothing today:
