It's Wednesday, Aug. 16, Rollercoaster Day. Happy birthday to author/poet Charles Bukowski (1920-1994), who wrote more than 45 books. Today in 1977, Elvis Presley died in Memphis. He was 42. It should be mostly sunny, with a friendly breeze and a high near 80. Ride a rollercoaster and scream real loud today:
