Paul McCartney turned 27 on this day. That means that in 2019 terms he is… um… 11 dog years old. Best not to think about it too much.

Think about this instead: Is Paul, in fact, the Jewish Beatle? This article makes a compelling case, although the delightful jewornotjew.com renders a verdict in the negative.

JONJ also shares this anecdote about Ringo:

When the Beatles performed in Montreal, Ringo was accompanied onstage by a bodyguard. Why? Because he received death threats. Why? Because some people thought he was Jewish.

So where am I going with this? Nowhere, really. Just treading water as we run out the clock on this month, perhaps the quietest in Beatles history thus far. The second half of 1969 will be eventful, if not always pleasant. Stay tuned.
