Here's the link to today's column. I did something a little bit different with this one.

Sorry I didn't have space to mention Daniel Defoe's character Friday in Robinson Crusoe.  

If one takes the last two centuries as a whole, Saturday looks like it's the rarest day of the week name ever. 

By the way, I haven't been able to figure out why Sunday had such a sudden one year boom in 1966. When a name goes up and down so quickly there has to have been some pop culture reason, but I haven't found it yet. If anyone else out there knows, please tell us. :)
