It's Wednesday, Aug. 15, Relaxation Day. Happy birthday to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer (1938). Today in 1969, the three-day Woodstock music festival opened on Max Yasgur's farm near Bethel, N.Y. It rained and things got muddy. It should be hazy again this morning, with a west breeze and a high in the low 90s. Here are a few things to do while you relax and listen to your Richie Havens albums today:
