LONG LIVE THE QUEEN:  Congratulations to Queen Elizabeth II, now the longest-reigning monarch in British history, having ascended to the throne upon her once-stuttering father's death on February 6, 1952.  How long ago?  Singin' in the Rain wasn't released yet, nor was the novel Charlotte's Web.

Of course, there were two key elements to extending her reign: Frank Drebbin's foiling of the Reggie Jackson plot in 1988 (HT: Dan McLaughlin), and, of course, that one night there was an "electrical failure" after her notorious incident with Kevin Costner.
