Presidents Day

Back in my youth, Lincolns Birthday and Washingtons Birthday were seperate holidays. Now we have one holiday to honor all former presidents. So today I'm honoring Millard Fillmore. Millard is best known for having the oddest name ever to be elected president until some guy named "Barack" came along. Which president are you honoring today?

James A. Garfield. He was a Republican back in the day when Democrats were the bad guys. Garfield was a close friend and a strong supporter of John Wesley Powell and the important role he played in the nascent Geological Survey and Bureau of Ethnology.
