If you are male and live in Pennsylvania, you might have recently gotten a notice from the Selective Service System that you must register for the draft, and face fines and imprisonment if you don't.  However, you probably have nothing to worry about, because the notices were sent to men born from 1893 to 1897, and if you were born during those years, it is extremely likely if not certain that you are already dead.  However, if you have any descendants, they will probably wonder what's going on.

Read the full story at Fox News.

As it turns out, my own maternal grandfather was born in 1897 and lived most of his life in Pennsylvania.  I wonder if my mother or any of her relatives has received his registration notice.
