Today's Founders Quote: A Morsel of Genuine History
"A morsel of genuine history is a thing so rare as to be always valuable."
- Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 1817.
And yet again, another tidbit of truth between our 2nd and 3rd Presidents - well after they had served. Today, we always talk about 'historic events', like whatever went on today is truly groundbreaking. Rarely, if ever, does anything really change how the country works. You think Jefferson and Adams had an idea that what they did truly changed the world? Hell yeah...
Speaking of historic, we spent so much time trying to find a decent picture on Chickipedia, that we ended running across Vivien Leigh... Yes - Vivien Leigh actually has a page on Chickipedia! She was hot whether it was for her day or now, so we're using her for this post. Genuinely historic indeed!
