President's Day

Long time readers may know that I usually use President's Day to honor Millard Fillmore (pictured in the post below) for being the only president named "Millard", which is still true. But my sister felt the need to honor William Henry Harrison, our 9th president, who is best known for being the first to die in office about a month after inauguration. With his short tenure, Harrison most likely holds the record for "fewest mistakes while president", which is an honorable record to hold.
So, which President are you honoring today?
(and if anybody says "Nixon" I will kick them in the gonads.)

Hey, Nixon signed into law the EPA, AFDC, and a number of other worthwhile programs of that sort. Oh sure, he also illegally bombed a country that the US was not at war with, ran a dirty tricks operation out of the White House, and otherwise was a vile twisted little man who needed a corkscrew to put his boots on in the morning, but hey. That's just being Presidential nowadays.
