It's the Helen Express, Right on Schedule!

Happy anniversary to the Golden Spike, which was driven on this day in 1869 at Promontory Summit. This marked the completion of the First Transcontinental Railroad, something of interest to train fans in Daria fandom (and I know there's at least one!).

Also, happy birthday to the late film producer David O. Selznick, born on this day in 1902. Selznick produced, among other things, Gone with the Wind, which was referenced in various Daria episodes and multiple alter egos. Someone on staff must have been a big fan.
