He was recently interviewed by Jason Jones of “The Daily Show,” who he threatened to “put against the wall”)

Author John Irving is 80 (Among his heralded works, “Cider House Rules,” “A Prayer for Owen Meany” and “A Widow for One Year.” He also wrote “The World According to Garp” – the 1982 movie of the same name was based on his book and starred the late Robin Williams)

He also refused an offer of a Union army to put down the Confederate rebellion. Instead, he retired to Huntsville, Texas, where he died before the end of the war)

The late author Dr. Seuss (aka Theodor Seuss Geisel) (1904-1991) (Sure, you know him for “The Cat in the Hat,” and “Green Eggs and Ham,” but did you know he drew over 400 political cartoons agitating against the Nazis during World War II?
