From the belated greetings department:

Did you remember to send a card yesterday? The Panama Canal turned 93. Many of the commemorative events, however, were focused on the future which is symbolized by the start of construction on a new set of locks which will increase capacity and the size of vessels which can transit the waterway. Since it opened on August 15, 1914, more than 922,000 vessels have transited the canal.
