The Last Summer ‘Supermoon’ Of 2014 Is Also A Harvest 
Moon When the moon turns full on Monday, Sept. 8 at 9:38 p.m. EDT, it not only will become the last supermoon of the summer, but also this year’s Harvest Moon — which is a full moon that occurs closest to the autumnal equinox.

Billy Joel had been on the verge throughout the mid-Seventies. But his fifth album had the recipe for success: a bottle of red, a bottle of white and a sharp eye for the local color of New York street life.
Billy Joel released The Stranger 36 years ago today. Read why it is one of the best albums of all time.

Time to remember where I was 36 years ago. Too young for a bottle of red and a bottle of white, but not too young to dream! Billy Joel’s The Stranger was released on this day in 1977. I would pull out the vinyl, but where would I find a turntable?

The original Constitution of the United States has errors!  No, this isn’t part of a grand conspiracy theory from an upcoming Brad Meltzer book. Jacob Shallus, hired by Congress for $30 to engross the Constitution, was under such a tight deadline that he missed several words as he wrote out the document. At the end of the document, he listed his corrections in what is called an “erratum.” 
The Word, “the,” being interlined between the seventh and eighth Lines of the first Page, the Word “Thirty” being partly written on an Erazure in the fifteenth Line of the first Page, The Words “is tried” being interlined between the thirty second and thirty third Lines of the first Page and the Word “the” being interlined between the forty third and forty fourth Lines of the second Page.
One error not mentioned in the erratum comes from Alexander Hamilton himself. When writing out the states for the delegates to sign next to, Hamilton forgot the second “n” in Pennsylvania.  Read about these errors and other issues in a recent article in Prologue, at http://www.archives.gov/publications/prologue/2012/fall/const-errors.html
