A BROZ BY ANY OTHER NAME

January 13th in history:

Patrick+Dempsey+Shonda+Rhimes

On January 13th, 1953, Josip Broz, the prime minister of Yugoslavia, took on a new job title.  That day, he became the president of Yugoslavia, and held the job until his death in 1980.  Broz was better known by the title “Marshal Tito.”

Another man from Eastern Europe took an important leadership position on January 13th of 1964.  Polish Bishop Karol Wojtyla officially became the Archbishop of Krakow.  Fourteen years later, Wojtyla took on a new job, and a new name: Pope John Paul II.

Actor Patrick Dempsey is better known to many TV fans by the title “Dr. McDreamy” on the series “Grey’s Anatomy.”  Dempsey was born on January 13, 1966 — making him exactly four years older than “Grey’s Anatomy” creator Shonda Rhimes (1970).  It’s also the birthday of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, alias “Elaine”, “Old Christine” and “Veep” (1961).
