On September 17

On this day in ...
... 2010 (today), the United States marks Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. Congress has set aside this date -- on which the U.S. Constitution (right) was signed, in 1787, and sent to state legislatures for ratification -- for observances. Government agencies, schools, and other groups are urged to plan commemorative lectures and other events. This 'Grrl's favorite item in honor of the day: the Which Founder Are You? quiz at the website of the Philadelphia-based National Constitution Center. I'm James Madison (below; credit), described thusly: "Diligent, scholarly, and shy." And you?
