It's Friday, April 20, Volunteer Recognition Day. Happy birthday to actor/activist George Takei (1937), who narrated a documentary about Portland attorney/civil rights activist Minoru Yasui. Today in 1999, 12 students and a teacher were killed (23 people wounded) in a shooting at Littleton, Colorado's Columbine High School. It's going to be partly sunny and warm, with a high in the upper 60s. Thank a volunteer today:
