Today in History: October 22

    "The Metropolitan Opera House, located on Broadway at 39th Street in New York City, opened on October 22, 1883, with a performance of Charles Gounod's Faust, the tale of a German sorcerer who sold his soul to the devil in exchange for knowledge, power, youth, and love."
Tony Pierce, who as far as I know has NOT sold his soul to the devil, but still manages to have plenty of knowledge, power, youth, and love in his life, turns 109 years old today.
