Seven to Go! Cyber Monday Approaches (John Eipper, USA, 12/01/19 4:43 am)

"So where's the WAIS content?" you ask.

WAISers have been strangely silent all Thanksgiving weekend. Nothing going on in the world?  Perhaps it's a protracted turkey hangover.  If so, as Bill Clinton reassured us, I feel your pain.  We enjoyed a third TG dinner last night at our neighbors' house, and will definitely be doing penance with extra time at the gym.  Starting today?  Well, first there are leftovers to work through.

One WAISer not caught in a trytophan stupor is Brian Blodgett, who sent his second generous donation of 2019. Thank you and thank you, Brian!  Brian joined WAIS way back in 2008, and somehow I've still not met him in person.  But in reviewing Brian's bio (through '08; see below), I noticed something I overlooked before:  he was born in Fremont, Ohio, just an hour from Adrian and the hometown of President Rutherford B. Hayes.  The Hayes mansion, Spiegel Grove, is the most beautiful presidential home no one has heard of.  And how many knew that the adjacent presidential library (from 1916) is the first in the nation?  Or that Hayes was the first president elected (in 1876) after losing the popular vote?  In our 21st century, this has become the new normal.

Hail to Rutherford B. Hayes!  And even more so, hail to Brian Blodgett!

Here's the deal:  Please join Brian on the 2019 Honor Roll, or I'll subject WAISers to more presidential trivia!

1.  Via old-school mail (checks payable to WAIS):  John Eipper, Goldsmith Hall, Adrian College, Adrian Michigan 49221 USA

2.  Via PayPal:  donate@waisworld.org

Next up:  a detailed monograph on why Hayes is venerated in Paraguay...and not loved so much in Argentina.  And then I'll turn our attention to Millard Fillmore (1800-1874) and the much-scrutinized Bathtub Hoax.

Pax et lux.
