    Born on this Day in History: February 27, 1902 - John Steinbeck was born in Salinas, California. He dropped out of college and worked as a manual laborer before achieving success as a writer. His novel The Grapes of Wrath -- about the migration of family from the Oklahoma Dust Bowl to California -- won a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award. Steinbeck served as a war correspondent during World War II. He died in 1968.

    On this Day in History: February 27, 1937 - The Reichstag conveniently burns. A mad Dutchman who was arrested at the scene, Marinus van der Lubb, may have been partially responsible but if this is so, he is likely someone's patsy. The Nazi Party benefited greatly from the subsequent crackdown, and it's suspected that SA stormtroopers set things up for van der Lubb.
