Further proof that May should just go ahead and be Star Wars month, George Lucas, the maker himself, is celebrating his 69th birthday today.

Special thanks to faithful reader and frequent verbal sparring partner T. Hartwell for cluing me in to this momentous day. I'm embarrassed that with all the movie anniversaries I keep track of, I can't seem to remember birthdays of creators.
