Happy birthday to Mr. Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald, who today would be celebrating his one hundred sixteenth birthday. Next time you’re in Washington, DC, pack up a few martinis and head to Rockville, MD, where you can find the burial site of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald who are laid to rest at the Old St. Mary’s Catholic Church Cemetery at 600 Veirs Mill Road. Pour out a martini or two, and remember that no matter how crazy his “Barbarian Southern Princess” seemed to be, he once said of his Zelda, “I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it’s these things I’d believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all she should be. I love her and it is the beginning of everything.”
