Fill in the blanks with numerals ("1", "2", etc.) to make this sentence true of itself:

          This sentence contains ___0's, ___1's, 
          ___2's, ___3's, ___4's, ___5's, ___6's, 
          ___7's, ___8's, and ___9's.

At first there's just one of each digit, but filling all the blanks with "1" adds a bunch more 1's which changes everything. There's at least two solutions.

*Bonus*
What year was Washington born in? And will the year 2000 be a leap year? (See last week's stumper.)
