Happy Birthday Keith Richards

“I’m a Sagittarius, half-man, half-horse, with a license to shit in the street.”
 — The revered English memoirist Keith Richards, who has also been known to strum a song or two, turns 69 today. Ordinarily we would wait until a nice round number to celebrate his birth, but with a man who lives as recklessly as Mr. Richards — who knows the next time he might fall out of a tree, or slip while reaching for a book perched high atop his library? — one takes whatever chance one can to acknowledge the passing of another year.
