That's really funny, Joe. Cracked me up. Kinda scary, actually.

Johan and FedReb - I know and understand what you're saying. Like I mentioned, I don't see a problem with it - I just wonder about the thinking. Keep in mind, there is probably a majority of the people on this discussion board that look forward to a rainy Sunday afternoon so we can unplug the phone, put on a pot of coffee and sit down with a good biography of Teddy Roosevelt. We're wired (or is it weird) that way. But what about the average guy, that he is walking up to the monument, and tells his kid - "That guy was our first president, that guy wrote the Declaration of Independence, that guy freed the slaves, and that guy...well that guy...he uh...spoke softly and carried a big stick. Certainly your definitions of TR qualify him - but are there other presidents more qualified?
