Frank Sinatra

Members of the U.S. House have declared Frank Sinatra Day, but they did it their way.

Lawmakers didn't get around to voting until Tuesday on a resolution supporting May 13, 2008 — last Tuesday — as the day honoring the late singer and Academy-Award-winning actor. Making up for lost time, the House voted 402-3 to do just that.

Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., sponsor of the nonbinding resolution and ostensibly the House's biggest Sinatra fan, told the House how he was introduced to the English language by listening to Sinatra records after his father returned from World War II.
