Subject: RE: BS: Happy pi day!
But why was George M Cohan born on the 4th of July (British style) and not July the 4th?
Scansion (5 syllables as against 4)
Rhyme scheme ("Do or die" doesn't rhyme with "July the 4th")
Anyway, would it be said as "July the 4th", or just "July 4th"? (even less syllables!)
