It looks like it’s going to be a busy week in our fair city. Monday is opening day for the 2014 Reds’ season, with the annual parade and all that goes with it. Tuesday is April Fool’s Day, which can be one of the most important days of the year for the seriously zany. And Thursday, April 3rd is an important milestone in Cincinnati history, for it was on that day ninety years ago that Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff was born. Of course, we all know her better as Doris Day.
