    22-year-old man travels 1,000 miles to meet 81-year-old woman he befriended on Words with Friends
    When Spencer Sleyon agreed to play a Words with Friends game with a random opponent over a year ago, the 22-year-old never expected that stranger - an 81-year-old woman named Rosalind "Roz" Guttman - to become his lifelong friend. That random match-up led to another game ... and then another, and another.

#OnThisDay in 1894, Congress established Labor Day as a national holiday! Learn more about the holiday that honors the American worker:

    History of Labor Day | United States Department of Labor
    But Peter McGuire's place in Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York.
