Charles de Gaulle[edit]

I can find no reference Charles de Gaulle becoming Prime Minister on June 3 1944 (excepting copies of this Wikipedia article). It seems rather unlikely, three days before D-day and with the Vichy government still effectively in power. There is a reference to him becoming Prime Minister designate on June 1 1958 [1] (he may have been confirmed a few days later). If anyone has genuine references for this it would be good to see them; otherwise it's a little embarrassing to have something wrong on our front page. DJ Clayworth 19:45, 3 Jun 2004 (UTC)

National Doughnut Day[edit]

The US "holiday" of national doughnut day is actually celebrated as the first Friday in June. In 2005, that was June 3. In 2006, it is June 2.

This trivial observance isn't important enough to be listed on a Day article. Jim Michael (talk) 09:10, 4 June 2010 (UTC)
