While some people in the U.S.A. apparently celebrate “Boss’s Day” on the 16th of October (seriously, people?), it is also World Food Day: this year’s theme is “United Against Hunger”. Also on this day Marie Antoinette was guillotined, Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood, the Warsaw Ghetto was established, supply was blocked for the Whitlam government, Desmond Tutu was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and the last known naturally occurring smallpox infection took hold in a two year old girl in Bangladesh.
