Lest we forget...

The sports and entertainment headlines are full of noteworthy recent passages, but I can't let today pass without noticing the anniversary of the death of the greatest and, the damned war be damned, the most progressive President of my lifetime.

Your life is better today because Lyndon Baines Johnson served as President of the United States.

That's a fact.

Too bad he believed that we could afford Guns and Butter without asking if the guns were worth having.
