Happy Birthday, G. Washington!

Hey, guys, guess what. Today is George Washington’s 278th birthday. He was a great man and exceptional leader. The first president of our country–and no one else, in my opinion, has even come close to being as terrific as he.

Yes, I get a little geeked out about G. W. It also doesn’t hurt that he has a terrific home.

If you have no idea why I like this man so much, do yourself a favor and hit up your local library soon.

Anyway, here’s to you, George. It’s been all downhill ever since.

    George no doubt had an ego and he was probably very aware of his place in history as the first president of a country that successfully broke away from England. And yet history doesn’t show any evidence that he made political decisions for his own self-interest as I think it’s already clear many politicians do today. I guess because in George’s mind his self -interest was to have a free country!
