(b. Sep. 9, 1828)
Last year at this time I was confused when I read that it was Tolstoy's birthday. Just 12 days earlier, Wikipedia had told me that same fact (August 28).
I thought to myself - "No way there are TWO notable Leo Tolstoys!?!"
Which is true, there aren't.
So I learned that sometimes the internet is wrong.
But today, a Russian writer gets his stitched due.
Happy 185th, Leo.
