Lately, I’ve been reading more news about the regime of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, than usual. Particularly the comparisons between his rule and that of the current president, Obama. This morning, Facebook remarks about FDR plus several interesting web-site articles.
FDR was president from early thirties, on through the Great Depression of the thirties, plus the second world war, when he passed in 1945. He had a home in Warm Springs, Georgia, and was there when he passed. I recall the news, because I was stepping onto a streetcar on Peachtree Street, when the man behind me announced FDR had died.
