No love for Roosevelt

It's always perplexed me how people who could viciously attack Bush (Hey, I don't like the guy either) but unquestioningly love Roosevelt. If Bush did only half the things he did, everyone would be foaming at the mouth. It's remarkable, really.

Good timing.

Good timing. This was the beginning of the end of a time in the USA when a "bearer" actually COULD redeem his/her paper money for lawful money (gold or silver) "on demand."
