Re: Video of Art Blakey with John Gilmore

Robert,

Not only is it possible that an American could misread 070365 as March 7 1965, but it's what one would ordinarily expect unless the American had reason to suspect the date was of foreign origin, the numbers didn't "fit" (i.e., 230689 (= 6th of ?????, 1989)), or the American had either been in the military or lived abroad and become used to the other system of noting dates.
