Shribman: On connections, perhaps coincidence?

(Continued)

This theme can be carried too far, of course, and we’re probably already past that point. So consider the year 1961. Among those born that year were Eddie Murphy (April 3), Boy George (June 14), Meg Ryan (Nov. 19), Heather Locklear (Sept. 25) and Aaron Sorkin (June 9). None of them has much if any connection with a man born Aug. 4, 1961. You know him as the 44th president of the United States.
