All I have to say about the passing of Gerald Ford is that I was born during his presidency. If that isn’t ignominious enough, I don’t know what is. What do I have to do to trade up to a Jefferson, FDR, Truman or Kennedy? Do any of you remember Ford’s quote that the Vietnam War is finished as far as America is concerned? He said that as part of a speech at the 1975 Tulane University graduation ceremony.
