Well, well, it’s birthday time! I would like to encourage you to spend the next year in search of justice. I’m not suggesting that you become a masked vigilante (though if you are already dressing up to fight crime, good on you. Also, send pictures). I’m just saying that you should seek out the equitable solution. A few years back, fellow June 17 birthdayer Venus Williams argued that Wimbledon should pay women and men the same prize money. Because of her persuasive argument and public pressure, Wimbledon finally relented and as the 2007 tournament winner, Venus was the first woman to take home a paycheck equal to the men’s winner (since women had been playing in the tournament since 1884, it was also about freaking time). For the next 365 days, you will be required to become a tireless champion of justice. Whether you’re challenging wedding reception seating plans or yelling “au contraire!” at the parking enforcement officer, it’s your job to make your voice heard. Don’t let the fact that nobody has ever successfully debated their way out of a parking ticket stop you.
