Sinatra gets his day, belatedly

From the Associated Press

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives 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 -- which was last week -- as the day honoring the late singer and actor.

"May 13 came up on us a little sooner than expected," said the resolution's sponsor, Rep. Jose Serrano (D-N.Y.).
