And songwriter, composer and gay community friend Morada Jane Benton is 83 today. She wrote "Ditch Dig- gin' Daddy" and "I Love Texas," among others, and now lives in Houston, where she socializes at gay clubs. Dec. 27: Radio City Music Hall opened today in New York City in 1932. And today is the birthday of Marlene Dietrich, born in 1904 in Berlin. Dec. 30: It's Tiny (Tiptoe through the Tulips) Tim's birthday. But no one knows how old he is. Jan. 1: It's the first day of a new year and the first day of your New Year's resolutions. It's also Paul Revere's birthday. He was born in 1735. And J. Edgar "bulldog face" Hoover He was born in 1895. Jan 3: On this very important day in 1888 (are you ready?), waxed paper straws were patented. They evolved, of course, into those itty bitty plastic straws we stir our drinks with. Jan, 4: "Tom Thumb" was born today in 1838. Back Street Basics in Austin is having a "Tropical Nights in Hawaii" weekend celebration. That sure sounds good after all this c-o-l-d Texas weather. Strict Christmas Rules at Pentagon Yes, Virginia, Christmas has come to the Pentagon, but subject to military discipline, reports the Washington Post. The Defense Department issued strict guidelines regarding holiday decor: trees muat not be over four-feet high, and prefer- aby should he artificial. Only round ornaments are permitted. Forbidden are candles, glass or pointed objects, as well as fake snow. Holly and other material may be used, but only "sparingly." The man in charge of enforcing the regulations is Capt. L.W. Freeman, who says the rules "speak for themselves." Any questions about them, he says, must be submitted in writing.
