I have always liked the above picture, taken at Richard Nixon’s funeral that depicted a time when the United States had more living Presidents than at any time in its history. After today, two of those in the picture have now departed as Gerald Ford passed away last night. Ford was a courageous President, best known for being the only President never elected to an Executive office and for pardoning Richard Nixon, an act that sacrificed his political career for what he believed to be the greater good of the country. Ford was also likely the best athlete to ever be President and his All-American career as a Michigan football player places him in elite status (along with former Supreme Court Justice Byron White) as a political/football duel sport athlete.
But in much less serious news, we have a radio show again tonight between 6 pm and 8 pm in the Louisville area on 1570 and 1600 AM.
