Hello, im not trying to annoy you but i added ric flair to the date because he is a legendry figure in professional wrestling and if you would bring his name up to any fan, young or old they would know him. A 36 year career ending on this day deserves recognision after every thing he has been through including broken necks and backs.
- Ric Flair, for all intents and purposes, is a fictional character. You actually make a great argument against inclusion when you say that "if you would bring his name up to any fan, young or old they would know him". No one who is not a fan knows him or cares that he ever lived. His career did not have an impact on the world and his retirement is not a globally notable event. In fact, it would be hard to justify that any person's retirement would be a globally notable event. I understand that you are a fan and have an emotional attachment to this event, but try to see if from the perspective of the rest of the world. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 19:20, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
Good point, although he is a real person not fictional, he didnt impact people outside the global wrestling audience and you made a good point and i apologise for repeatable changing it on the March 30th page, thankyou. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 19:24, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
- Just to clarify, I did not mean that he is not a real person, but his persona is fictional. Wrestling is entertainment, scripted for the most part. His retirement is part of the script. -- Mufka (u) (t) (c) 19:31, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
No, his retirement is legitimate because he is never wrestling again, but is part of a storyline in WWE that every match he wrestler prior to Wrestlemania 24 was a "Career Threatening Match". Oh god i can't believe we are arguing about this. sorry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lums1991 (talk • contribs) 19:36, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
Blue Rodeo Day in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Probably not noteworthy enough for inclusion when a single city decides to make a day something but figured I'd put this here and let someone smarter then me decide.SinbadEV (talk) 14:50, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
Batman's actual introduction
According to the article with citation, Detective Comics issue #27 (May 1939) introduced the first appearance of Batman. But according to this page, it states it in March; seems like the March 30 anniversary page is incorrect.
I’ve just been looking around: after one of my blog’s regular readers highlighted the issue. According to her researches, and this link, it was supposed to have been released on 17th May. And However, Wikipedia’s ‘Cover date’ article says an issue would be released anything up to two months BEFORE the cover date.
- The United States Copyright Office's official record, the Catalog of Copyright Entries 1939 Periodicals New Series Vol 34 Pt 2 page 164 (online version available at the Internet Archive) gives a copyright date of March 30, 1939 for the May issue of Detective Comics. I would certainly give credence to a contemporaneous legal record.
- In addition, the Grand Comics Database entry for Detective Comics #27 uses the date of March 30, 1939 with the notation "The on-sale date is the publication date reported in the U. S. Copyright Office filing."
- DC's "Official Press Release" Warner Bros. Entertainment and DC Entertainment Celebrate Batman's 75th Anniversary states "First appearing in the comic book Detective Comics #27, which hit newsstands on March 30, 1939..." The other DC link was simply in error.
