  • In Washington, the Commerce Department reports on construction of new homes for February.
  • It’s National Biodiesel Day, observed on the birthday of engineer Rudolf Diesel.
  • And do you wanna live forever? Irene Cara sung all about it in the hit song “Fame.” It’s her birthday tomorrow. She’ll be 55.
