I'll be 30 years old in a few hours. On my birthday in 1989 United Airlines flight 232 crashed in Sioux City, Iowa killing 112 of the 296 passengers. People not from the Midwest were amazed at the fact that the people of the area did so much to help deal with this.
Also Born on July 19th:
1814 - Samuel Colt, American firearms inventor (d. 1862)
1834 - Edgar Degas, French painter (d. 1917)
1860 - Lizzie Borden, American accused murderer (d. 1927)

And these people, none of whom I've ever heard of, are also turning 30 with me.
