"[C]ritics Casey Deeha, Chipp Oatlay, Sal Savirdy and 'El Presidente Mole' promise to provide 'not merely a description of burritos, but a more writerly experience that gives the attention to burritos that they deserve.' Yep. You heard it here, folks. - Jay Barmann, SF Grubfest

"[Casey Deeha] also thinks it could be a matter of cultural heritage and sense of place why a Mission-style burrito is thought to taste the best in San Francisco." - Tamara Palmer, Zagat

On this day in history, the following events happend - according to trusty Wikipedia - I've noted some of the highlights here:

Napoleon abdicates for the first time in 1815 - he had a good run...

The Communist Party of Panama is founded in 1930 - well done...

Los Angeles, California is incorporated as a city in 1850... imagine all the post-anticipitory future burritos...

Alexander II of Russia narrowly escapes an assassination attempt by Dmitry Karakozov in the city of Kiev in 1860 - good duck...

Twelve nations sign the North Atlantic Treaty creating the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in 1949 - here we go NATO!

Martin Luther King, Jr. is assassinated by James Earl Ray at a motel in Memphis, Tennessee in 1968 - well shit...

Microsoft is founded as a partnership between Bill Gates and Paul Allen in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1975

15 British Royal Navy personnel held in Iran are released by the Iranian President in 2007

While I recognize the importance of these events, there is no mention of 'National Burrito Day'...The accuracy of Wikipedia is compromised.
