There’s a line in L’il Abner (the most underrated Broadway musical ever) — in the song, “Progress Is The Root Of All Evil” with the refrain, “bring back the good old days!” — in which the rich guy complains “I went to see the President / They asked me to wait / And though I knew that he was swamped / With matters of state / A fella named Ben Hogan / Walked right through the front gate! Bring back the good old days!” Eisenhower liked to golf. (Ben Hogan was the Tiger Woods of his day.)
I thought of this during Chris Hayes’ Thing One, Thing Two segment Friday night. You gotta love these two minutes.
Quote of the Day
To think that distasters only happen to someone else is human nature. But, when human nature runs into mother nature, regret normally follows.~CBS hurricane specialist Bryan Norcross
