FDR


The man on the usually sound BBC news has just said that Gordon Brown suggested his task was like that of Churchill and Roosevelt in reconstructing the economy after the Second World War. Wasn't Roosevelt actually dead by that point, because as I recall it was Harry S Truman in the chair when the war actually ended as FDR checked out in April '45?

This is a pedantic post.

In researching this post, I have found that FDR had a secret train! Can a train be that secret? Was it a 1940s stealth train, maybe? Cool!

Why does eveyone want to compare what they are doing with the past. We need to LEARN from the past so that we don't repeat it, not try do do it in a similar way. GA!
