Number 38

0018701.jpg

In the Jimmy Carter Museum in Atlanta, Georgia, there is a political cartoon from a big-city daily. In a single frame, it depicts 1) a nefarious Richard Nixon handing Gerald Ford what looks like a smoldering pile of garbage on a shingle, 2) the stoic-faced Ford reeling around with the same shingle on which the garbage has been turned back into a sun-drenched White House, and 3) a toothy-smiling Jimmy Carter taking the handoff. That’s what I thought of when I heard the news last night.

    An honorable politician. Perhaps not an oxymoron after all. Rest in Peace, kind Sir.

    I unfortunately thought of Chevy Chase. I always get the Ford family mixed up with the Louds, is that the name? The first reality TV family.
