A very happy birthday to Steve Krauss — one of the government community’s rising stars… literally. Krauss was in FCW’s inaugural year of the Rising Star awards and he was one of the people who helped me get the Rising Star awards going. He is works with AFCEA’s Bethesda, MD chapter and is a past president of Bethesda’s Young AFCEANs. Like Steve Ressler, who I mentioned previously, he’s a doer.

UPDATE: I got a note that Krauss is the president-elect of the Bethesda AFCEA chapter.

Important events on this date:
* 1950 The comic strip “Peanuts” by Charles M. Schulz was first published.
* 1869 Political and spiritual leader Mohandas K. Gandhi was born in Porbandar, India. (10/2/1869 – 1/30/1948). (Read the NYT obit of Gandhi from 1948 here.)
* 1890 Comedian Groucho Marx (10/2/1890 – 8/19/1977) was born in New York.

So Kruass shares his birthday with:
* Sting (57)
* Singer/songwriter Don McLean (63) — “American Pie”;
* Mike Rutherford (58), from Genesis
* Annie Leibovitz (59), the celeberity photographer. (Her most recent book can be found here.)
* Kelly Ripa (38), the actress and talk show host (“Live with Regis and Kelly”)
* And, for those American Idol fans… Mandisa (32) (Here American Idol page is here… When does Idol start again?)

Other historical figures born on this date:

* Bud Abbott (10/2/1897 – 4/24/1974), one half of the Abbott and Costello comedy team. (“Whose on first” is still hystically funny!)
* England’s King Richard III (10/2/1452 – 8/22/1485)
* and… Nat Turner (10/2/1800 – 11/11/1831), American slave hanged for leading violent slave uprising

Happy birthday Steve.

And… Who is on first?
