Happy Tarzan Day!

Guess who would've turned 131 today?

No, not Tarzan, but you're close. Edgar Rice Burroughs, that's who.

Couple of things I didn't know about Burroughs: Tarzan of the Apes was inspired by Burrough's having read Darwin's Descent of Man, and for the first half of the last century, Burroughs was the most widely read author in America.
