I think I've mentioned this before, but you might be wondering why there are no recent births in these lists.  I am doing my best to protect the privacy of living folks by not including their data in them.  That is, if the list includes someone I know or reasonably believe to be living, I remove the birth date from the list for that day.  I had to remove a couple from today's list, which reminded me to discuss it.  By "reasonably believe" I usually use 100 years as a guideline unless I otherwise know that the person has died.  This means I'm probably cutting out a few folks who could have stayed in the lists, but I prefer to err on the side of caution.
