Today is December 7th, a date which will live in infamy. On this date in 1787, Delaware became the first state in the United States. So I guess technically, it was just the United State. Also on this date, in 1805, Lewis and Clark made camp on the shores of the Columbia River near modern-day Portland, and began building a fort where they could spend the winter. They used pillows and blankets and, of course, no girls were allowed. And finally, today is National Cotton Candy Day. Because who needs teeth?
