Honest Abe and the Funky Bunch
When I was about six years old, my grandparents bought me a set of paperback books about our presidents. I enjoyed them. I even read some of them multiple times...all thirty six pages!
My favorite was the Abraham Lincoln one. (I know, how original.) Anyway, sometimes I'd just open up to the back page and read about how he was killed and then I'd force some tears because it was so sad. That's right- I used to spend my first grade time forcing myself to weep about dead presidents.
Anyway, here's to Abe (and all other notable and inspiring presidents). Let's take this day and reflect on times when the Leader of our Nation/The Commander in Chief/The Big Kahuna was actually intelligent and worthy of the Kahuna throne.
