Happy Palindrome Day!

In month-day-year format (MM-DD-YYYY), today can be written as 01-02-2010 the numerical version of a palindrome.

A palindrome is a name (Mike Kim), word (rotator), phrase (Poor Dan is in a droop) or number (01022010) that reads the same backward and forward.

The last palindrome day was Oct. 2, 2001 — or 10-02-2001. Prior to that one, you have to go back over 600 years to Aug. 31, 1380 or 08-31-1380!

The next palindrome day is Nov. 2, 2011 or 11-02-2011. That will be the third of only 12 palindrome dates in the 21st century.

Thinking of palindrome days gives me good memories of my high school math teacher, Mr. Rodney Crittenden, who love palindromes.
