Are you sure you believe in horoscopes?
If you're a regular America in the Morning listener, you've heard Jim intone that line above many times. Horoscopes would have you believe that everyone born on the same date has the same personality characteristics. To illustrate just what baloney that is, Jim will read the names of some of the people who share a particular birthday, and their personalities are so different, well, you just can't believe in horoscopes. (Or, can you?) Follow along as we'll periodically add to this list of examples, all of which are people not only born on the same date, but on the same day and year as well:
