Happy President's Day
With no available image of Washington, I opted out of posting
"Washed Out." No matter. Popular historian opinion ranks Lincoln as the greatest president.
I quote: "While 'President's Day,' which was enshrined as a Monday holiday with the 'Uniform Holiday Bill" signed into law by Lyndon Johnson in 1968, is more closely pegged to Washington's Birthday, Richard Nixon appears to have started the tradition of referring to it as Presidents Day and honoring all the presidents, even though some surely deserve less commemoration than others. Good thing for him, too, because he's the only president to resign in the face of impeachment."
Here I quote again: " . . . Washington helped create the country and Lincoln helped keep it intact and end the stain of slavery."
No matter. If we disagree we can pick our own personal favorite; after all, we have 45 from which we can choose. Here I disagree: The "stain of slavery" can never be cleansed or end.
