Today is March 28th. On this date in 1930, Constantinople and Angora were renamed Istanbul and Ankara. So, Istanbul was Constantinople. Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople. Also on this date, in 1976, the band Genesis began their first tour with Phil Collins as lead singer. He left the band on this date in 1996.

And finally, on this date in 1979, the nuclear reactor at Three Mile Island suffered a meltdown that was almost as severe as Jeffrey Toobin's during the Obamacare hearing. Zing! Don't forget to celebrate National Something On A Stick Day! (Preferably with food.) Consider this an Open Thread.
