Twinkle Twinkle Little Bat

I had a great many more things to say about July 26, but as usual, I started too late. In conclusion, Walt Disney’s Alice in Wonderland today premiered in 1951. I don’t know about you but the little dormouse perfectly sums up my energy right now. Good night.

Alfred Marshall

One of the founders of neoclassical economics, Alfred Marshall was born on July 26, 1826. First impression: he looks like he was a barrel of laughs. Possibly in the room at the Fidelity Fiduciary Bank in Mary Poppins?
