Happy Admission Day -- September 9, 2008

We don't hear much about Admission Day anymore. Today is the 158th anniversary of California being welcomed into the Union.
Today I took this photograph of Douglas Tilden's Native Sons Monument, which commemorates Admission Day. I posted a detail view last year.
Anita Page died. People are posting about her all over the place and trying to qualify their statements about whether she was the last surving silent star (usually something like "who made movies as an adult").
