Happy President's Day

Happy President's Day.
Today is a holiday and in addition in Minnesota it is a snow day.
Who do you think of when you think of President's Day. Washington? Lincoln? Jefferson?
In a recent discussion about Glee's William McKinley High School and jealousy over the high school theater department's awesome fog machine and rain curtain (seriously do you know how long it takes to tech a scene with a rain curtain not to mention how much they cost? I totally want that high school's budget) one of my friends mentioned another President who doesn't get a lot of attention. That's right. I'm talking about Taft.

There are other clips from this series so go check it out and see if you can find your favorite President.
If you're looking for a little holiday reading I highly recommend Sarah Vowell's book Assassination Vacation . Lots of info in this book about Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley.

Great video!

Assassination Vacation is an awesome book, too. I love just about everything Sarah Vowell has written or done though.
