YANKEES, BRITS, AND THE POPE

April 19th in history:

The American Revolution began on April 19th, 1775, with fighting between the American colonists and the British at Lexington and Concord, Massachusetts.

April 19th is the birthday of British actor and comedian Dudley Moore (1935), and American actress Kate Hudson (1979). Hudson was born the year after her mother, Goldie Hawn, co-starred with Moore in “Foul Play,” a comedy thriller about an assassination attempt on the pope.

A new pope was elected on this date in 2005. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger took the name Pope Benedict XVI.
